I love Peter Rabbit! So cute and what fun to find it in your suitcase! I love surprises!

(a minute of silence)

I am so relieved that you recovered from that post yard sale trauma!


How sweet is that paper....so cute.
I am all over that suitcase, tho...I love em, don't have room for them. I bought some, but they aren't square, therefore, harder to display.
Awesome finds, and don't you love the surprises.


That is too precious! They just don't make wallpaper the way they used to. :)


Oh that blue one and the birdcage ones are so pretty!


Congratulations on some great finds. Obviously, this was just the thing to bring you out of your yard sale funk....and it was free....and amazingly cute....and a surprise! Should be enough to keep you going for quite a while -- it's the lure of the hunt, after all.


Maybe you can talk your husband into having another baby so you can use that bunny wallpaper...heeheehee! I love that birdcage wallpaper the most. I can picture it on the back of a bookcase, behind the books. Are you keeping or selling?

What a fun surprise. I just bought a vintage suitcase today too - mine is a bit smaller in size and thought it a good deal (altho it was EMPTY!). I can get my husband to do alot with my decorating - like a pink bedroom - but I know he would draw the line at Peter Rabbit.


OH you are a lucky girl! I miss mine and cannot get close to the prices I paid 5 years ago. In fact they are all $50 and up here. I didn't pay that for my trunk!!!

Very nice score!

My husband would probably let me do a Peter Rabbit room, we all loved him so much. I don't think he'd be willing to sleep there though.

Oh! Barb how wonderful! I can't believe you found a suitcase with something (desirable) still inside. That is almost unheard of today. Good for You! Just a quick note to let you know that I have moved my blog to http://lilaclanevintage.blogspot.com/ Hope to see you soon.


Isn't it astounding when you find something EVEN BETTER inside something you got for dirt cheap? That happened to me once; I bought a hatbox, and when I got home, inside I found 6 MINK hatpins! I still have a few...


That is SO CUTE! But I love the houndstooth on the suitcase even more.


What a treasure, all of it! xo, suzy


SWEEEEEEET! If they are smaller pieces would like great in an altered book. Love it all! Jewels


that is too funny. i had a case in my hand yesterday and said what do i need this for? one filled with old wallpaper would be a total score for me! if you decide to sell any of the papers let me know!


Cuteness overload is putting it lightly! I am not usually a wallpaper person - but that - that is simply divine!

Thank you for your "Top Ten Reasons" Comment - I loved it!

The Peter Rabbit motifs would be fabulous in vintage frames. You are one lucky bunny!

Peter Rabbit wallpaper?? That may be worth having another baby, just so you can decorate a nursery! Wonderful finds...I would have grabbed the same stuff!


Well, once again you've found some truly wonderful things. I love all the wallpaper, but you're right about that Peter Rabbit paper being special. I've seen it a couple of times before, but not in these colors. It's charming!
