attic house

Posted in Uncategorized by Jules on 31 October 2007

i don’t know if we have a particular style of decorating, but if we do i would call it “attic”. the picture above is from a dresser in our bedroom filled with books, sean’s grandfather’s typewriter, a CD player, an old radio clock. the rest of our house is a mish-mash of old quilts and blankets, lamps…none of which match. our furniture wasn’t picked for it’s decorative-ness, it was mostly given to us. my husband is also a “keeper”. it’s an inherited trait. his grandfather had it, his mother has it… this trait is the reason we have a box full of football cards, an old boyscout uniform, walkmans that may or may not work any longer, shoes that no longer fit him, and boxes and boxes of pictures. most of the time when i look around our house i feel as though i live in a grandparent’s attic. odds-n-ends, funny bits of things that you’ve never seen before, antiques, a tin full of buttons, dusty books and pictures of family history. an attic house never quite looks clean – always a bit out of sorts…but it’s home.

    Hello friend. You are setting a style all your own, and it is beautiful.

    I am so glad that you noticed the cat in the background of the video, no one seems to notice that. You have made my day completely!
