Played in the Attic yesterday

Yesterday I spent some time at
Rusty Glamour  playing in my space.

I found this great rattan set this
last weekend. It's in good shape
and a great size.

I love these "All About" books.

There are those cute little pink
lamp shades from my previous post.
The second shelf on the right has
a twin bedspread that has wonderful
pink velvet trim and is reversable.

Very sweet little child's rocker.
And games!

And one of the displays of bagged
up smalls. Many fun things to
go through.

Sue from BirdSong was adding
to her space, too.  Many new things
to view.  Come on by.

Treasures I found

Last weekend I went to thrift stores,
garage sales and estate sales.  Here is
some of what I found.

Two adorable lamp shades.  They
would be so cute in a girl's room.

An assortment of goodies.

Not sure what this is but I like it!

Toot Toot shovel, glitter, large spool of
heavy thread, old razor blades and
flower embellishes.

Coffee jar (needs some cleaning),
Barbasol jar, some flower frogs for
my collection, Vick's blue jar.

Colorful knobs, enamelware glass,
alphabet stamps,cute metal Easter egg,
 and an iron wheelbarrow.

Two great pillows, the hanger they
gave me (sweet cover)

Made in Japan paper napkins, Coors
baking dish, white Red Wing candle holder,
two fridge dishes, green plate, bushes and

An old hole puncher, and blue metal
letter holder (actually got two of them).

Some of this will go to the shop , and
some will stay with me for now.

Hope you had a good weekend of
treasure hunting!

A Visit

These guys come by on a regular basis.
They are not afraid of humans.

If you try to run them off they don't
go very far.  Then they stop, turn around,
and give you the "look".  You couldn't
catch them if you wanted to!!

Mother's Sampler

Evi, from Evi's Country Snippets did a post
on samplers.  Hers are so lovely and are
red and white.  I told her I had one my
mother had done in blue and she asked me
to share it.  So, here it is:

Mother was born in 1909 and did this
when she was 6. Her name was Nina
F. Bachelder.  The little duck is also
blue but didn't show up quite right.
This hangs in my guest room.
