Colleen Cornelius' Profile

About

Looking back over the years of my childhood I can easily see that I was destined to be a treasure hunter. A treasure hunter in more than just the sense of always looking for that valuable piece of art or collectible but in the sense that I could find treasures almost everywhere.

I would find something completely beautiful about how the sun's rays would cast down on an old decaying Tobacco Shed overgrown with wild purple thistle and Queen Anne's Lace and want to preserve that treasured image forever.

Obviously one can't capture and keep everything without becoming a horder. Along with that I am a type A personallity needing organization and order, so building my little shops to pass these treasures on to others has enabled me to persue my passion.

I love this shop because it is designated to all those little pieces that when put together can make something amazing. Have you ever looked at those plastic pieces used to prop the top of a pizza box up and thought to yourself "what a wonderful endtable for Barbie?" If yes you have just found yourself a place to settle in and browse. While we do not specialize in Barbie tables, we do have a treasure trove of vintage and new supplies where the only limits will be your imagination. I do hope you will enjoy my Butterfly In The Attic 2 and don't forget to stop by my other two sweet little shops:

My large collection of Collectibles and Handmade Pieces (including my photography) can be found at http://www.ButterflyInTheAttic.etsy.com as I have devoted this shop to craft and art supplies.

I am also owner of Postcards In The Attic at http://www.PostcardsInTheAttic.etsy.com featuring Antique, Vintage and Handmade Postcards and Supplies. Please stop by and check it out.
