A bag of memories

Time is the journey.

A very favorite is this old bag full of history.
It sits in my hallway on a small stool to greet travelers and to welcome them.
I found it thanks to Kristin who, during my jaunt in Aix en Provence, took me to a small flea market near her home.

The details which make it unique and endearing: original initials written by hand, leather handles and straps, the old numbered travel label.

Cara Laeriss,

Thank you for setting an ambiance. Your pictures are intriguing. The scent of Provence - inspiring!
I am a new blogger from Italy, Umbria. Seemingly we have interests in common - the hunt for "faded beauties".

Bacione, Ingrid
