attic treasures

We're having some exterior work done on our 1939 English Tudor-style house, and it's been a very exciting process. Todd and I walk around our little property every night to check out what's changed and try to imagine what it will look like when finished.

I plan to post before-and-after pix once it's all done but in the meantime, I just had to show you this:

Aren't they darling? Our contractor found them tucked away in an unaccessible part of the attic. He said he normally throws stuff like that out, but since he knew I liked antiques (I had told him about going to the Expo a few weeks ago), he saved them for me.

I love to imagine their history and will definitely find a way to incorporate them into some of my assemblage pieces!
