My husband was actually in the attic handing things down to me and a neighbor boy. Much of what was up there could go directly to the trash pile...lots of empty boxes, old coffee pots and space heaters. However, there were a few boxes full of treasures. I didn't want to bring home too much. I really did feel that my sister-in-law should have first choice of her parent's things, but she wasn't able to be there and I was told to take what I wanted, yet leave a good assortment for my husband's sister. Look what followed me home.
Vintage ornaments so fragile I was afraid to touch them. I also learned that they should not be wiped with a damp cloth...the paint will come right off. Old Christmas light bulbs, just perfect for a big glass jar, my husband's childhood Santa and reindeer from the 50's and an old brush tree and bulbs and things that scream, Marty's holiday cloche party to me!
It was hot! I was so dirty that I couldn't stand it!
I have a giveaway coming sometime soon.

I Need Mom is the end of the month.
One of this precious beauties will be in the box
