  1. Hi Dixie. I feel like I have come in during the middle of someone's conversation. I have no idea what's going on! I must get out more..............

      Have a great Easter Dixie!

  2. April snuck up on me- I forgot to sign up for the A-Z!! I've done a few, they are fun. Thinking about signing up now if it's not too late- but meanwhile, in my imagined attic... cocktail cabinet and a telescope :-)

  4. Our attic isn't usable by design, but I would LOVE to have a beautiful attic like the one pictured. Maybe in my dream house someday I will have a lovely attic niche like this to enjoy or at the very least a good place to stash some of the clutter. I can't believe it's #AprilA2Z time, can you?

  5. I haven't even been up in ours, I think it's filled with stuff the previous tenants left behind. I do love attic rooms, though.

  7. That first attic looks very murder-y. Nope, that's not even a word, but you know what I mean. See ya around a little more this month Dixie!

    2. Having recently joined the Association of Artists, a relief from my constant writing, it would be a writer's studio with squashy armchairs, coffee and cake for my many visitors. Fun.

    3. Hi Carole Anne! Welcome back. Yes, squashy armchairs, coffee and cake, and you'd invite me one day!!!

      Congratulations on the Association of Artists - well done (smile).

  8. Wonderful images. My bedroom as a kid was in the "attic" part of our house, but it had been finished and converted. I painted each of my walls (even the wall-ceiling sloped area) all different pastel colors when I was 13 (Miami Vice was the rage then), and I had one of the best walk-in closets with bookshelves on both sides (it was a good thing that I'm short though since I could only stand upright on one side of that closet). So, I can say that I'm a writer who once wrote in an attic . . . but it was far nicer than that usually sounds. :)

  9. I think I'd need one. But if I had one it would be filled with boxes all nice and neat of things I didn't need

    1. That's the way must attics end up, I fear. Mine is empty - I'm dreaming.

  10. My attic is more like a crawl space. If I never tried to stand straight up I could use the space!

    1. So maybe containers on wheels, and pulls ropes/belts to bring them closer to the entry to use things from them?

  11. I think my attic hosts an ant colony. I'd love it to look like that second picture though :)

    1. Ants? Aw, no! I had to use white chalk and draw a line around the kitchen counter to get them to go away. They try to eat the chalk and it cuts their intestines. Sounds cruel but it gets rid of them.

      If I could I've given you an attic like the second one.

  14. I love the second picture of the attic. People with kids can use attics to great advantage I think.

  16. I remember sleep overs on an old feather mattress in the attic. It probably had fleas and who knows what else, but it was so much fun. (Thought you weren't doing the a-z; nice to see you here!).

    1. Sharon, I loved sleepovers - didn't matter if we sleep on grass. I wasn't going to, but my friend, Arlee made it look too easy last week... so I jumped on board. (smile)

  17. Sadly my attic is full of cobwebs and dust. I wish I could afford to change that but for now, it is what it is
