My creative space

 I didn't have a camera yesterday, but I so much want to share this photo with you. 

I had an obsession that I have to have some old leather suitcases for keeping my knits in it and transporting them to different craft fairs. 
Besides the practical aspect they just look beautiful and nostalgic. 
However, it wasn't easy to find one. People who has them, are not so happy about selling or giving them away, unless the suitcase is broken. Or if they do, it costs a lot more than I'm willing to pay. 
A month ago I took my old clothes to charity shop and there they were! Two brown leather suitcases, almost identical, but one is a bit bigger than another. 

I had to pay only $5 for two suitcases. The shopkeeper said they would throw them away a day later, because no one wanted them for 2 years! Can you imagine how happy I was? 
I was looking for suitcases for ages and they just stood in a shop, two houses from my home and waited for 2 years to be found.

These suitcases are wonderful, teddy in the pocket is very cute. They must have been waiting just for you. I love how old suitcases seem to be brimming with un told stories...every little mark on them suggests something to me.

dash, so true. I often think what is the story behind suitcases. One suitcase has a name sign on it, it's from Sweden.

Imearmas foto. Küll on tore, et ma Su blogi avastasin. Aitäh minu omast läbi hüppamast ja kommentaari lisamast!

Kummalised on need vanaajakohvrid. Ilusad ja romantilised, aga hoidku selle eest, kui nendega praegusel ajal reisima peaks. Kuidas küll vanasti hakkama saadi ilma ratasteta-sabadeta-raamideta... :)

Ilusat nädalavahetust, ja tervitused Frankfurdist! :)

Tere Epp!
Reisimine on täiesti omaette teema...
Ma olin pagasisõltlane kuni mullu detsembrini, kui pidin Vantaa lennujaama pagasikäitlejate streigi ajal läbi Helsingi Itaaliasse sõitma ja sellepärast esimest korda elus vaid käsipagasi kaasa võtta sain.
Endalegi üllatuseks jäin ellu ilma kõigi nende vidinateta alates juuksesirgendajatest heegelnõelani, mis muidu alati ringi reisivad.
