My Attic

This weekend I had to go up in the attic for our Halloween and fall decorations.  I took my camera and snapped a few photos of the treasures I have stored away.  Most are sentimental treasures from family members.  I have a couple of vintage fans from my great aunt.  I don't have them in the house because they actually work and the thought of them being used scares me with two little ones.  I have some other neat items from her as well.  Most of the other items are from my grandparents--the butter churn, washboard, and so many other things I didn't photograph.  They no longer live in their home (an old farmhouse that they built).  My grandmother is in the nursing home and my grandfather is in assisted living.  A few of the things in my attic are from other places.  For example, the old window was rescued from my neighbor's trash pile just a few weeks ago.  The old army trunk was bought at a garage sale when I lived in Seattle almost ten years ago.  I'm not sure what I want to do with them. 
Maybe someday I will find the perfect place for these special pieces in my home.  For now they will stay hidden away in my little attic.

  3. Treasures galore! I love that they've come from a variety of places and are waiting patiently for just the right opportunity to be put to use.

  4. Such treasure. I love that army trunk and if you don't find a home for it I will come and get it, hehe. All of the stuff in beautiful but my favorites are the butter churn, can you imagine how much butter was made in it--so cool,and I love the fans. Thank you so much for linking up, hope you are staying warm.
