oh man. They are all so cool! I love the travel charms and the jewellery. I started a charm bracelet a couple of years back and it still only has 2 charms haha. I don't even know why because I love it. You have inspired me to get it going again!

fabulous collections - all very cool. I see you have lots of cases. The wooden one that you saw on my blog wasn't handmade as it had a medi-kit sticker inside so it must have been a doctors case. The surface was quite buckled as it must have been wet so it's had a bit of a makeover - might be best if you don't look.

What lovely collections. I love the idea of souvenir charms, which I'm sure have memories attached to them too. Love those suitcases, vintage sewing stuff, and totally understand you about compacts!
