Look at the treasure that just arrived for me yesterday . . .
It is a Louis Vuitton, Alzer hard side suitcase! I found this beauty on the Internet and at a steal of a deal compared to what they usually are - and had to go for it. I don't know that I will actually use it when traveling, but I just love having it sitting around! ha ha! I think I will put it in my bedroom and keep special things in it. I am going to keep some things from my wedding in it like my earrings I wore, my fabulous wedding shoes, Mike's tie and some other special things from that day!
I seriously felt like it was Christmas when I got it! I thought to myself I should have given it to Mike to save for Christmas, ha ha!! But he is not so good with hanging on to gifts too long, he is always too excited to give me my gifts, so that probably wouldn't have worked!!
I am in love . . I could just sit and stare at it, ha ha!! Like I said, it was a deal, but still not cheap. I got to splurge with a little extra money I had, something I normally never do . . . but for such a classic piece that is timeless I think it is SOOOO worth it!! I am going to keep my eye out for other LV pieces. I look at it as an investment and something that will last a lifetime and something I can hand down to my kids. I just picture opening it up one day and showing my kids the things from our wedding that I will keep in there and then one of them having it one day and putting their special keep sakes and treasures in it. While it is amazing in itself, what I plan to use it for is that much more amazing to me!! It will be like my very own treasure chest, holding things full of love and memories, things I will cherish forever!! That's what I love about it!!
I will show more pics when I put some of these special things in it . . . so stay tuned!!
