Welcome to At Annette's Attic, where you will find some unique treasures.

I have always enjoyed designing and creating since I made my first dress on my grandmother's old treadle sewing machine, when twelve years old! It had long sleeves, a full skirt and buttoned down the front--made in plaid fabric !! This was the challenge that spurred me on and I have loved sewing ever since. There are times when I will lay awake at night with some new idea. I am sure some of you can relate!! I enjoy finding vintage materials to recycle or new pieces of fabric for making pretty aprons in vintage, retro and modern styles for different tastes. All the decor pillow coverlets are made in designs that will give that special touch to a room.

I am thankful for God's creation in the beauty of our world in nature and people, so I take many photos of life in…

I am thankful for God's creation in the beauty of our world in nature and people, so I take many photos of life in general when traveling. I also dabble in oils and water colors. I will share some of my art work from time to time, since there is no more space on the walls in my home to display these pieces.

My passion for antiques and vintage collectibles began when eighteen years old. You should now see the eclectic abundance in my attic!!! Some people would call it "junk", while others see these finds as "treasures" in Annette's Attic. I would like to share them with you and hope you will enjoy using them as I have over the years.

Together, my sister and I enjoy designing jewelry from an array of beautiful beads, crystals and gem stones. These necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pins are unique. Finding vintage pieces from estates and flea markets, brings to you a "taste of yesterday" that can be worn today!

I am really excited about having the privilege of opening a new shop on Etsy. This shop really began December 2009, but had to close for awhile due to traveling on some mission trips. When I go on these trips, the shop will be "On Vacation" from time to time, but usually only two months out of a year. When AtAnnettesAttic is "Open" during the year, unique items will be displayed and shared with you.

Please feel free to convo with questions or special orders and I will get back to you within a couple of days. I will strive to give you quality items and service. Thank you for the blessing of serving you,

ANNETTE
