Suitcase beds are really cute, my problem would be finding a good place for it. Especially in a smaller house/apartment, you really can't have a bunch of things like this just lying around. Maybe if one was on top of a bookshelf or cabinet or fridge as decoration and elevated cat bed? I don't know.

Parking for Toy Cars from boxes. It says Cigarette boxes, which I don't have lying around but I'm sure we could use something else like
or just ''little'' or ''not so little'' or ''little enough''.......I don't know, I just like the idea of ''little'' in that typeface. And clock/steampunk-y pocketwatches...
