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.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope you are safe in your travels and can
put up with that crazy relative for this one
day.  We all have much to be thankful for so
let's not forget the purpose of the day.

Andy's Nest is Finished

This is the guest part of the room.  The white cover
on the bed is just an old shower curtain to protect
the mattress because usually this is covered with my
junk I am getting ready to sell.  When company comes
(next weekend) the bed will be made.  :>)

This is the real "Nest".  My desk with my wonderfully
slip covered red chair.  (Thank you Mary Jo, Faded Rosey)
I like to pile things up around me.  It makes me feel cozy.
My kitty has her bed in front of the window so she can
see the birdies, and bunnies, etc.  Storage items are
placed to make a stairway to her bed because she
has a little trouble jumping that high.

This is what I see when I sit at the desk.  This is where I do
paperwork and pricing.

This is area next to the cat's bed.  Just some things
that I like to have around, or have a plan for later.

Even the back of the desk has things piled up. It never
seems to end.  The desk is an old oak teachers desk so I
covered it with fabric.

My view out the window.  On a sunny day it is very pretty
and I can actually see down to the road.  We will plant more
things out there for a nicer look in the spring and summer.

The full other side of the "Nest".  You can see the sweet
Munchy in her bed.  (she is the black blob).  Suitcases
for storage, the long library table was my mothers, the sides
pull out lengthwise to make it larger.

So there is the tour.  I had fun putting it all together and
I really am comfortable in my Nest.  I call it my Nest because
I don't create, or sew, so it is where I "nest".

Until next time please be safe and stay healthy,

Been a Junkin

Lately I have been having some good luck at
thrift stores, estate sales, and a rummage sale.
These are the sewing accessories I found.
Rick rack, needles, wooden spools, Pendleton
label, etc.

Also some fun vintage sparkling trim.
Here are some of the miscellaneous things I found.

I really messed this up.  Not sure what happened to this
picture.   Anyway, found some cute little
cups and picks.  Love the really colorful picks.

Sweet old tin, hanging down are old nylons, two
sweet little oil paintings, and a ton of di.

This is a very unusual metal frame.

Moe of the dice, sweet little mirror, flower frog,
vintage floral pins, and the two little red topped
canisters fit inside each other and the small one
has dice inside.....too cute.

Adorable squirrel bookends.  I have a collection
of squirrels. Coffee holder, and a better view of
the dice.

These are some of the kids things I found.  In the back is
an ironing board with metal legs.  Cute felt ornaments,
shoes, watercolor set, cowgirl pillow.
The Paint Box is from London.

This pillow is one of my favorite finds.  It is filled
with lavender.  It is heavy and I put it through the
dryer in case of bed bugs to freshen it, and the
whole room smelled of lavender.

There were more good things I found but I needed to spend the day getting
Christmas items ready to go to my booth.  Hope you have a good weekend.
Until next time,  keep safe and good health,
