Throwback Reflections

I have been wanting to do a post about my Aunt Nancy and cousin Megan's company and all the AWESOME stuff they do, so here it is!  Their business is called "Throwback Reflections".  They do a lot of cool stuff with antiques but probably the most awesome stuff they do is the decoupaged suitcases they make.  These things are SO cool!
Megan restores vintage suitcases and uses vintage cartoons and photos to decorate the exterior of them.  Here are some photos of some of the previous ones she has done and sold....
 Spiderman!  Love this!
 I loved these books as a child, Dr. Suess and Raggety Ann bring back good memories.  I still even have my old raggety doll!
 Charlie Brown & The Lady and the Tramp
She is so talented right?  Someday I will have her make me a super cool one, mabe little mermaid or 101 dalmatians? I was obsessed with those movies when I was a kid.  Im still dying to get a Dal, but Spence says not until we have more room :( Megan is still creating some of these wonderful suitcases, here are two that she is working on right now and will be available to purchase...
 "These pictures are from a children's book from sometime between the 1920s and 1940s. The illustrator is Hank Hart. I LOVE his work and it can be pretty hard to find. These are reproductions that I made so I didn't have to rip my book apart." - Megan
Megan is also working on this Raggedy Ann and Andy case from vintage Johnny Gruelle books. These are from the same time period.

Nancy and Megan have an etsy site where you can find more stuff by them HERE !!! CHECK IT OUT!
Comments are always loved :)
