Some New Finds
My shopping for the week is over
so here are some of the things I
found while going to thrift stores
and garage/estate sales. The pink
doll bed is the 3rd pink doll bed
I have found recently.
Inside the little bed is a box
full of old brown bottles. It
is a mix of bottles with lids
and bottles with droppers.
I'm not sure I can part with
this magazine rack with the
green parrot. It is primitive
and colorful and begs to
I found this old tin at an estate
sale. It seems quaint, and
fancy, and whimsical all at
I am constantly amazed at the
quantity of "stuff" in our lives.
And yet we acquire more and more.
Since starting Andy's Attic I find that
I spend very little time in stores with
new merchandise. That fact pleases me
because I think recycling and re purposing
is very important. My whole life has been
spent around gently used things (of course
mixed with new). I find comfort in
knowing someone else out there got use
out of something that I am now using. Or
someone else appreciated the beauty of
a picture or the color of a bowl. And, am I
the only one who has gone to an estate sale
and wished I could have known the person
who lived there?
Hope the weekend is a good one, Annette
