need help with old suitcase
would like to make a birthday gift for a friend of mine. She loves old things and loves to garden. I would like to take an old hard covered suitcase and paint the outside a sage green. The inside is musty smelling and is covered in an ugly brown. I thought maybe of getting a pretty plastic tablecloth and recovering the inside, but would like some ideas of things that I can put inside garden related. She also loves to write notes to send to people so anything that pertains to that also. It probably doesn't make much sense what I am telling you, but everything I come up with is the usual garden things. Garden tools, pots, seeds, plants, which I will put some of those things in, but I would like to add a more personal touch. Any ideas? Thanks.
