Aw, shoot me now - it's attic clean-out day

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle...this is my mantra for the week. In preparation for our (hopefully upcoming) move, all those cleaning and organizing projects I've had on my "To" Do list for the last few years have suddenly become more urgent.

Today's project: cleaning out a crammed, chaotic attic nine years in the making. This will actually probably be my project for the next month. Ugh.

So, while the emphasis today is on Reduce, I have found a few nifty things that I will definitely Re-use :

Clockwise from top:
- A really cool drum machine...where in the world did this come from? I lost about 20 minutes of my life last night after I found it - this thing is fun!

- An approximately 80 year old Native American dad had this hanging in his room as a boy and it's been in a box for years now. I think I'll hang it in my (don't-have-yet) barn.

- An antique vanity that my Great Aunt purchased with her salary as a grade school teacher in the early 1900's.

- A nifty little first-aid kit on a cord (similar concept to soap on a rope, but way cooler). :-)

Hey, if I don't post tomorrow, will somebody tell Jim where he can find me?

    That's the wonderful thing about cleaning out attics. You just never know what treasures you will find. And, you've found some beautiful ones.
