Been Junkin'...

in my attic! It's all stuff I had long since forgotten about and stored away whilst we were redecorating some rooms in our home years ago!

I think it just goes to show that loving 'primitive' style has always been in my nature - just who I am and what I feel akin to deep down... Annnnyhoooow aside from indepth psychological analysis, here's some of the stuff I found or rather rediscovered today pokin' about...

These are silhouettes of DH and me that we had made when on holiday many moons ago.

Seems I get alot of stuff on holiday as these beautiful crotchet pieces were bought on honeymoon
It's really fine work~
With a bit of tea staining it can help a little prim display...
There were quite a few picture frames in amongst the boxes and I know exactly what I'll do with them as i had these cards of Billy Jacob prints lined up...

So that's what I've been doing today aside from amusing the 3 kiddos who are off school for half term. We were rollerblading and then the rain came on so we played a good old favorite, Monopoly. Funny how old is sometimes best...

Best wishes and thanks for visiting your comments are a great treat to read! Thanks so much!


  1. What beautiful treasures you rediscovered!I love the prints!very beautiful!have a great day playing monopoly.blessings michelle

  2. :0) I can do this in my attic too! Such fun going back to the things we've stored away only to make them "new" again!! Love your things!

  3. What lovely treasures you re-discovered Christine! I think you are right, "old is best!" I have a special crocheted piece that a dear friend made me and at the time she made it wasn't cool to have things "coffee/tea" stained. It accidently had coffee spilled on it and I was so upset at the time because I couldn't remove the stain. I carefully put it away not wanting to part with it. Several years later I was going through a box of things and there it was! By this time I was coffee staining everything and it now is stained, I love it even more. Funny how things like that work out.
    Sending warm blessings to you,

  5. It's amazing what you find in your own house that you've put away and forgotten all about. The best thing is that you didn't have to spend any money and also it goes to show you how sometimes your tastes haven't changed as much as you thought.

    What great treasures you found ~ love the crocheted pieces and the prints.

  18. The silhouettes of you and hubby are so cute! You definitely need to get them hung up! I love Billy Jacob's prints although I don't own any. What a great idea to frame the cards!

    Glad you got some good old-fashioned fun in with the kids... there really is nothing better than that!
