New life for a brief case~

Doing a little {just a little] cleaning out and found this WAY cool brief case that my father-in-law had given  to my husband ~he thought it would help keep my hubby organized not !!

Anyway hubby never used it and it is really cool.  So I decided to use it for my ephemera !!!  I'm sure glad I'm not speaking that word ~ always gives me trouble :):):)  Why can't we just say old stuff~

  Cool file folders in the top~perfect!!!!  Did you notice it has snap to keep the old stuff in the folders?

 Nice and roomy too!!!

Love using vintage in my studio to organize!!!!
Have a great weekend and I'll see ya soon!!!!!


  1. great idea, Connie! you never cease to amaze me.

  2. That word is hard for me to say too!! LOL!! I loveeeeeeeeeeee what you did with that briefcase!! It's perfect for your 'old stuff'! LOL! :)

  3. ooooo very cool place for your old stuff. lol!!

  4. You have the most awesome finds. That's a cool briefcase and an even cooler storage spot! :)

  5. What a great idea! Lots of pockets and room for all your goodies:-)

  6. Hi Connie, great briefcase and put to good use too.

    I could never say THAT word (ephemera), so I asked an Antique Dealer to sound it out for me, so I will try to tell you how it goes.

    You start with the "e" sounding the same as you sound the "e" when you say 'egg'. Then the "ph" has the same sound as you say "ff" (like a puff of breath). Then; the "em" is the same as you would say 'emma" and the "era" has the same sound as you would say in the word 'error' except you put an emphasis on the "a" rather than on "or".

    In a nutshell the sounds are;


    I find it easier to say the "eff" first then hesitate just a tiny bit to get the mouth turned back the other way to add the "emera".

    After a while you can say it quite quickly.

    Many Blessings
