Christmas Greetings and Shed Update

Merry Christmas everyone! This is one
of my favorite Christmas finds. I found
it a few years ago and couldn't believe
no one had purchased it before me.

It is a wonderful apron with Santa..........

Georgia style! Isn't it a kick??

And on another note.....

My Potting Shed is ready for company.

Every four months I host our "Girl's Cards" group. In
January we will pull out the drop leaf table on the right
and pull up the chairs and play cards!! FINALLY!!

This is just a cute little bit of folk art I received while in
Port Townsend.

Still not ready for the big day. If you can believe it we just
got our tree today. You would think that now that I am
retired I could find the time to be ready for Christmas way
ahead of time instead of last minute again!!!!

Please be safe out there in the hustle bustle and have a
wonderful Christmas Season,

First Snow

We are getting our first winter snow. It's early for us. If
one can be inside, warm, have food and provisions, there
is such a peacefulness about the snow. We didn't move the
settee into the shed yet so I have no place there to curl up
and watch the snow. :>(
Peace to all,

Favorite Project Part 4 and a Warning

Although not completely done, the shed is ready for its
photos. But pleased be warned: If you do not like color
or if you don't like being surrounded by treasures you
have collected for years-------this post is not for you.



For those not from the Northwest, the picture of the
mountain is Mt. St. Helen's before she blew up.





The top of the cabinet.





The loft...AKA Level B - for baskets and birdhouses.

The corner by the window.

So this is my home away from home, my playhouse,
my little slice of heaven. Hope you enjoyed the tour.

Below is the sign above the door on the way out.

Until next time be safe and happy,

Favorite Project Part 3

The painting is done.

It took a while because I had a shoulder injury and finally
Mr. Attic painted the whole thing. He is the best.

One of my friends calls this my signature green.

I decided to paint the wood bench and beams instead of
staining them.

It came out just as I had imagined. Now I am in the process
of "moving" in. I will keep you posted.

Until next time, be safe and well,

Andy's Attic Sale

It is time to make room for Christmas.

I am of the old school, where all the wonderful
Christmas things came out the day after

It was so exciting to go shopping that day and see all
the new things and decorations and displays.

Now it starts in October. It is difficult for me to even
think about Christmas yet. However....

I will be bringing in Christmas things soon so I must make
room. All the pink tags are 25% off. Hope you can make it
in to Uncovered Ruby to shop.

Favorite Project Part 2

Here it is! The lattice at the bottom was added as much for
decor as to keep all the little creatures out.

And the walls and ceiling are finished in bead board. I came
home from a little vacation and walked in and found my
dream come true!

This is the big window that faces west and up to the left
is a sort of skylight for winter light. You see, I am supposed
to share part of the shed with Mr. Attic so he can grow
things from seed and overwinter plants.........

This view looks out to the front and you can tell we need
to do quite a bit of landscaping still.

I've decided to paint it all white. I have so many colorful
things to put out here and hang on the walls that it is
difficult to think of a colored wall or ceiling.

Except over here where the wood is exposed, I think I will
go with a green stain on the wood. I also plan to skirt the
bench so I can hide things (lots of things).

The floor is a vinyl remnant. There wasn't much to choose
from and I just couldn't go with a beige/white laundry
room looking floor.

To say the least I am thrilled with the outcome. Now I have
to wipe down the walls and paint and stain and then I can
really start to have some fun...............Putting it all back
together. I will post some updates as time goes on.

Until then, be safe and happy,
