Vintage Suitcases Memento Craft Idea via A Drawer Full of Pretty Wishes

Megan of A Drawer Full of Pretty Wishes blog has got some serious fashion and craft talent, more on that in later posts. But I just simply adore her vintage suitcase ideas. They would make a wonderful keepsake gift, using mementos and special touches all in a nice, traveling package. Almost like a scrapbook or shadow box , but on a bigger scale. I pass by vintage suitcases all the time in thrift shops. If you made several, they would look adorable stacked in a corner together. Imagine, one for birthdays, seasonal holidays, then they easily fold up to be stored away until next year. I look forward to making some of these soon!

I love the dainty details of ribbon and lace. Personalized buntings and banners are easy to make with either fabric or paper and add an extra special touch. This dance themed case is complete with a tutu and vintage art of a ballerina. I know many little girls who would love this!

Love this frame idea. Paint and distress an old frame, than glue vintage rhinestone buttons or clip-on earrings or brooches to decorate it. Add a pretty saying or photo. Simple and sweet.

I love how she added sport items and comics for an 8 year old boy! Imagine making a Star Wars, Minecraft, Leggo, science, dinosaur, animal, military, cowboy or car themed case. They would make a cute table display at a birthday party.

Prom and Bridal Hair by Me and my Downtown Studio Salon Team


It is prom and wedding season and we have been going crazy with updos here at Downtown Studio in Historic Rosenberg, Texas! We have been doing lots of the relaxed and more creative style hair for weddings, and the teens are all about partial updos. Common requests this year are braids, twists and soft curls. Which is fine by me, it's one of my favorite styles to achieve! So scroll down for lots of creative inspiration photos by our salon. If you pin them, please attribute the photos to us, thanks!! If you are the The Sugar Land, Pecan Grove, Rosenberg, Richmond, Katy, Houston, Needville areas, come on by to get your hair done! We make it a party every time :) If you aren't local, come say "hi" on our facebook page for lots of hair styling tips and tutorials.

Much love from the Downtown Studio salon team and all who come for their special events!
