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.

A smile is a very powerful thing to me.

Last week, while shopping the thrift stores,
I found two framed sayings about  a smile.

The one below is my favorite and had no
author at the end.

A smile
costs nothing, but gives much. It
enriches those who receive, without making
poorer those who give.  It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along
without it, and none is so poor but that he can be
made rich by it.  A smile creates happiness in
the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the
countersign of friendship.  It brings rest to the
weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the
sad, and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or
stolen, for it is something that is of no value to
anyone until it is given away.  Some people are
too tired to give you a smile.  Give them one of
yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who
 has no more to give.                                       

Share your smile,

Tomorrow is the last day of Uncovered Ruby.

Andy's Attic has found a new home for going forward.

Details will follow soon.  I am glad to have a
new home.  I am busy getting ready.

Sooner rather than later

As it turns out, Uncovered Ruby will be closing
for business the 25th of February.  Many vendors will be having
sales in their spaces starting this next Wed. the 15th.
Andy's Attic will have many things on sale for
20% off.  I am very sad about this but will find
a new home.

Please be safe and give someone your smile,

Just a little update on Uncovered Ruby.
( see previous post)

Figured you should know that the shop is
open until the end of March.  New things
are still coming in all the time and
you still have plenty of time to get
there and enjoy the magic!

Sad News and Happy News

Uncovered Ruby

Uncovered Ruby  is closing.  My little Andy's
Attic was started inside this shop because Sally and
Lisa gave me a chance.  This is very sad news for me and
many vendors and customers who love this shop. We are
hoping that someone will take it over and keep the effort
going forward.  Sally and Lisa took a chance with
this venture and it worked out.  Thank you both.

On a happier note:  My cat Munchy got new grass today!

So all is well in her little world!

Till next time,

Be safe and give someone your smile   :>)
