Some Colorful New Vintage Finds

I found some lovely and colorful vintage finds recently and wanted to share them with you!
This is a wonderful little vintage children's suitcase, probably used to pack some toys for Grandma's house!
I just love the colors! Right up my alley, don't you think?

And the best part...the inside is pink vinyl! I think I may make this little suitcase into my carrying case for bringing art supplies to art know to work on in the booth when it is slow.

At the same estate sale, I found this whole bag of vintage measuring tape, lots and lots of them! Wouldn't this be a fun trim to sew onto crafts, such as pillows, and such? I wonder how my sewing needle will cut through this?

Then I spied this adorable children's book on learning how to knit! I just loved this little girl and knew she had to come home with me! The inside graphics are like a comic book too! Oh so cute!
And finally, a whole pile of vintage bias trim in adorable patterns! I love love love it! So cute! I can't wait to add it to some projects! As you can see my mind is simply brimming with ideas on how to incorporate these new vintage finds. I just love when I find great vintage crafting items! Sometimes it even makes me hop up and down like a bunny, which usually brings me odd stares from other estate sale shoppers, but I don't care!
