Grandma's attic

by brae  

In my world, grandma is able to navigate those pull down attic stairs easily, walk about the attic without hitting her head and sit comfortably for hours in a space that doesn't appear to have any airflow for the warmer months or heating for the colder ones.  :D  To that end, the attic will be a collection of fine (or not so fine) antiques set into vignettes where Grandma can get away from it all.

I recently entered a competition hosted by Minimum World in the UK.  Contestants were to submit pictures of their "period" room in any era or design style they wished.  I entered the 1920s inspired kitchen in the Heritage.  You can see all the contestants and the winner on the Minimum World facebook page.

Though I didn't win the top prize, each contestant was sent a prize for participating.  I received my gift today, a lovely set of granny boots, a fancy hat with stand and a parasol by Katy Sue Designs.  They are lovely and the perfect addition for grandma's attic!  :D  A huge thank you to Minimum World for holding the competition and for the lovely participant prizes!

Here are a few other things that might end up in grandma's attic.  I have plenty of ideas up my sleeve, but these are things I already had on hand.

Very cool idea for the attic, that the one part I’m not sure what direction to take on yet. Those are some very pretty gifts, love the boots.

Can’t wait to see the attic completed. I am sure it will be very special. Lovely hat and boots. Such a cute little cat on the sofa too.

Thank you! I’ve had the little kitty since I was a kid. I’d love to have that sofa in real life size! :yes:

Lovely, indeed! The boots are awesome. Lucky you. The more I read about Grandma, the more I like her and her exquisite taste.

Your gifts are fantastic. And I want to see more from Grandma’s attic. I think it will be very elegant with this sofa.
