Vintage Suitcase Friday!

I have been thrift store shopping and dreaming and reading this week.  Needless to say, no projects have been finished but this is a vital part of the creative process, is it not?  
I have discovered some lovely books at the library, the "Pretty Little" series by Lark Books.  I have checked out Pretty Little Pincushions (again). 

I also have Pretty Little Presents and Pretty Little Purses & Pouches and still others have been placed on request.  I read these books and study their pictures with a ticklish feeling in my brain as I am inspired to create variations and new things.  I have decided that what puts the tickle in "Thrifty Tickle" is the need to create, the delight in a new idea.  Sometimes (er, quite frequently) when I come up with an idea for something whether it's updating a tired calendar or replacing the cinnamon in cinnamon rolls with basil and lemon, I laugh out loud.  I really do. 

Time to link up!  Grab a button from the sidebar and tell all your friends!  This link party is still in its infancy, let's make it great.  I can't wait to see what you've redone or repurposed!
