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.
