Announcement   Recycled, re-purposed and eco-friendly gifts and homewares crafted and re-loved from yesterday’s treasures.
I create handcrafted goodies in Vintage style, Primitives and Pretty & Chic, but my passion lies with Mixed Media/Collage.

I also have a special love for vintage and antique treasures, but also like retro and pretty much anything old!
Here in my store you won't necessarily find that costly or 'worth a lot' antique, but I'm hoping you'll find something that speaks to you and your own love of old.

I'm not an expert on collectables and will truthfully give a description of all items and their conditions to the best of my ability.

You'll also find a small collection of crafty supplies that might come in handy on your own creative journey.

Enjoy the ride. ♥

The chenille was beautifully packaged and arrived quickly. Can't wait to start sewing with it. Thank you Pam for the care that you have taken with it. Many thanks. Tracey

About

Gifts and Homewares crafted from yesterday’s treasures.

My name is Pam Eyre and I’m the face behind Nest in The Attic.
Besides being a wife to a very handy husband, and a mother to two very gorgeous felines, I’m also an artisan/crafter/student in the University of creativity. Call it what you will!

I first started ‘creating’ by making cloth dolls with needle sculpted faces along with other country and shabby chic type crafts, then later went on to sell them through an Australian Primitive craft, online magazine, The Chocolate Crow Trader, in late 2007. This then lead to my own website in 2008, Cloth to Creation (since closed), which was followed by a selling blog (also now closed).
After this I started selling my work on Etsy, and haven’t looked back. Moving over to this marketplace was one of the best moves I personally could have made to sell my work.

My tastes and style have become quite eclectic over time, and I now create my own designs for most of my dolls, bears & critters, bags and boutique-ish aprons.

I fell in love with mixed media along the way, using this style in collage and altered art (with lots of found and vintage materials), and I’m having such a fun time with them! Of course with a name like Nest in The Attic you might guess correctly that I have a penchant for anything to do with birds, nests and eggs! Being an often-used element in mixed media work, I discovered that I really enjoy using wire and I’ve created many nests and cages using stranded craft wire and chicken wire.

It seemed a natural progression to create as many eco-friendly items in my repertoire, as I can, using these found objects and pre-loved/recycled materials. Therefore creating some really lovely altered and re-purposed products, and in the process helping to leave a much lighter environmental footprint on the earth.

I’m so very fortunate to have my own studio under our house, where I can go and create whenever I feel the urge or need. This is where that ‘handy husband’ came to the fore! ;D
He’s been a godsend with building walls, putting up shelving, laying carpet, moving air conditioners etc and he even built me my own “suitcase wall” as I call it. Like many other crafty people I have a lot of collections and one of them is suitcases/ports/cases. They come in very handy to hold one of my other loved collections; vintage chenille bedspreads, that I use to make up dishcloths, bags and potholders amongst other items! Oh dear, don’t get me started on my collections, ok? Lol.

I also sell a few supplies for the things I create such as bundles of vintage chenille, handcut wooden blocks and craft books(pre-loved).

Thanks for reading all about me and getting this far into my babbling tale! ♥
