just a little bit shabby said...

Love all your "goodies" and the suitcase is fab! I have also seen them made into dog beds. Keep the top stable and add bun feet and a cushion inside. Makes an adorable dog bed. Just incase you find another one and need some suggestions.

I love your toy box, and all of those delicious goodies inside!!!

The jar of buttons, the french trim, and the dolls...the little one reminds me of a doll I had when I was young. We called it a Jenny doll.
Very pretty.
