The name of my blog has changed to match the name of my Etsy shop Andy's Vintage Attic. The URL has not changed for the blog.

The Next Project

 This is our guest room.  We don't have many guests
as  nobody likes us most of our friends and
relatives live nearby.  This bedroom set has been passed
down to the oldest daughter since it belonged to my 
great grandmother.  It includes a dresser and side
table not in the pictures.
I am moving my Andy's Attic "office" into this room.
It means rearranging things a bit but will give me a private
place for all my junk.  We my husband will paint the room
starting today.  I am very excited about this change and
quite frankly it is all I think about.

Moving my things out of our shared office means another
project down the road.......redo of the office.  How fun is
that??  One of these days the house will be finished.

More of the project soon,


PS  Thank you to all who commented on the new blog look.
I am still working on changing a few things and appreciate the
feedback very much!!

I needed a change

The blog has looked the same for too long.  I've  been
blogging about 2 years and just am sort of tired of the look.

I had wanted  barn wood on the sides for a while but
couldn't find what I wanted.  Well, lo and behold, blogger 
has their own backgrounds (yes, I am slow to catch on) and
there was my barn wood.  Then came the header........ I liked
all the color in the old one but decided on a collage that 
includes me  (yes, the little girl is me).

So now I need some feedback, please.  I am far from being
a designer and I want a happy looking, cheery blog.  I am wondering if 
the barn wood is too dark?? Are the pictures too dark???  Am I over-
thinking it all??  Should it simply be one picture for the header instead 
of a collage??  You will not hurt my feelings if you tell me the truth.  I 
like the truth.  Please leave a comment for me so I can ponder more

If Irene is around you, you are in my thoughts.  I've been through hurricanes
and they are not fun!

Till next time,
