Vintage Suitcases and a Tune from Dara McLean

Hello friends! Welcome to the weekend and welcome to this week's Say G'Day Saturday Linky party! I hope you have some time to spare to check out some gorgeous Vintage Suitcases and listen to a Tune from Dara McLean.

Have you heard Dara McLean before?

I've only just discovered Dara Maclean and I really love her amazing voice and her inspiring message.

Dara grew up outside Fort Worth, Texas, she was heavily influenced by the era of Motown as well by contemporaries like Adele, Natasha Bedingfield, Ray LaMontagne and Marc Broussard. In her debut album, You Got my Attention, she has also incorporated the funk and soul she grew up loving into her music.

“Suitcases,” is her debut single and in it she tells us that if we to transform our lives and make a change for good we need to shed our excess baggage, let our guard down, and open our hearts.

How can you move when they’re weighing you down
What can you do when you’re tied to the ground,
You carry your burdens, heavy like gravity.
Just let them go now, there’s freedom in release.

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day 
Throw away your mistakes and 
Open up your heart Lay down your guard 
You don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe
Your love can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart
Lay down your guard
You don’t have to be afraid


Vintage Suitcases and a Tune from Dara McLean

Put treasures to work. Stacked up, vintage suitcases "read as a single unit of furniture, like a cabinet," says Madden. And this gorgeous grouping doesn't just stand there looking good: The family stows off-season stuff, such as holiday ornaments, in each "drawer."

Can you imagine what it’s like to be free
We’ll send them backpackin’
They’re now what you need
Vending your troubles
By the side of the street
Just let them go now
Believe me


Leave the past behind you and free yourself from stress, 
worry and unhappiness!

I hope you enjoy listening to Suitcases: relax, let go of your load and don't be afraid to do so!
