The inspiration hadn't stuck but yesterday while on Pinerest I saw a suitcase with a christmas display by Jen Rizzo http://www.jenniferrizzo.com/2011/12/welcome-to-virtual-holiday-house-walk.html
OMG! Yes I can do that...
You know how sometimes things just fall in to place I made a quick trip to Target and I found the house.
The whole display just came together after that.
The inside of the suitcase isn't that pretty so I added the lace and wreath ... the house,family photos and granny's gloves and pearls and pretty pastel colored baubles on the tree and glittered snowflakes adds to the magic.
I want to leave it up all year round Mm mm ! maybe I could add birds , nests and eggs for a Easter themed suitcase , now there's a idea
