Dream Travel

(Fan Alert!  Want to win this month's blog giveaway?  Need you to scroll down to my August 5th post for entry rules!)
My bag is packed again.  I'm heading to Wisconsin with my hubby today to spend a few days with his parents.  The cool Wisconsin breezes will be a nice respite from the Florida heat!
I came across these vintage airline ads and think, wouldn't it be great if traveling were as pleasant and glamorous today as back in the 1950's and 60's?
I'd travel wearing a lovely little frock and heels and my hair would be perfectly coifed.  I'd arrive at the airport to find a short security line, and I'd board on time where the flight attendants would greet me cheerfully while handing me a fluffy clean pillow and a blanket.  I'd sink into a comfortable seat with ample room for my long legs and doze off for a little nap!  All around me would be smartly dressed people - pretty dresses and dashing suits.  And beneath the seat in front of me would be a super cute, pink carry-on case with a wristlet handle.
Oooh, how I'd love a vintage carry-on case, similar to the one in this vintage Delta ad:
I'm on a mission to find a vintage carry-on, preferably a pink, red or baby blue one like this:
Tear drop shaped or oval?  Can't decide!
Once I find one I'd like to decoupage it - wouldn't that be cool?
So off I go and maybe I'll experience something similar to this vintage Continental ad which promises, "Up in the clouds luxury."

I love those ads. Good luck finding your vintage carry on.

Good journey Cindy!

If you find two of those teardrop shaped bags I want one ;)
