One day a long time and some homes ago I found an old suitcase in the trash. One person's trash is another one's treasure indeed -  I would never throw away such a fine suitcase with so many memories on it, but for some it had probably been taking up closet space for too long a time. 

The suitcase was covered in old travel stickers. You don't see that anymore!

I've kept it in our livingroom; it has had magazines and chords in it but for the moment it has no other function than to look nice. Dag ripped some of the stickers off when he was smaller, but many are still left.

I wonder who it was that once traveled to these places and took this suitcase along?

Marry a suitcase, why not? I love these old stickers they are so romantic and individual. Great find.

Those travel stickers are amazing! I've found some amazing things in trash cans while walking the dog - beautiful wooden wine crates, a wooden guitar and my hubby found a surfboard...I wonder why people throw these things out too.

We've "rescued" a few old suitcases and trunks too! My favourite is a huge trunk with the initials A.E. on. Who they were we have no idea, but it's nice to imagine the life they led x
