Walking around the place one day, taking photos here and there of this and that. Above, inside my antique wicker baby carriage in the attic is an assortment of items including an original Elvis record, vintage Korean black lacquered photo albums, and century old cotton lace.
Antique handmade, or hand 'fixed," clothes hangers, made from twigs and salvaged rockers of rocking chairs.
One of my ripped-paper pieces from the late 1970s and early '80s, resting on childhood wicker rocking chair from Germany.
A red-and gold-gilded Victorian mirror reflects other family items hanging around the attic.
This '71 Chevelle SS454 is in the 1:18 scale range. It's fairy heavy-handed and not-to-scale, but it enjoys living in the dusty attic these days.
My "punk" Wishnik oversees a bunch of collectibles. The least noticeable item, the grayish stone the size of a pencil eraser next to the tiny Edsel Bermuda wagon, was a gift from none other than RuPaul back in the early 1990s. It's an unpolished crystal and she told me it would bring me good luck. I'm still waiting, lol!
This is what I call "Mozart" stuff, lol. It's a very fussy 1940s era ceramic work, not my style, but they're sort of kitsch.
This is a turn-of-the-century wooden and metal school desk. The chair for the desk ahead is in front. It's an ingenious design. There are decades of initials and sayings carved in it. It's from a school in Manhattan. Behind it is an early postwar Ethan Allen Early American reproduction sidetable, painted in a frivolous manner by yours truly several years ago. I'm still thinking about it...
Another two Wishniks, this is my special pair, lol. They're next to a '72 AMC Hornet gas cap, a 1940s slushcast Cadillac model and a pair of ceramic covered chicken salt dishes.
A Victorianl bisque doll's head next to a 1950s Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera, some unused military patches, and a very good scale 1955 Bel Air 2-door sedan by Johnny Lightning.
My broken bentwood rocker and assorted attic collectibles.
An old watercolor with a broken glass and frame waits in the attic.
This is a vintage pressed cardboard print of an autumn scene. It's fairly realistic in person with the impression of brush strokes and pigment layers.
These plastic scale model kits were reissued in the early-to-mid 1990s when I shopped for things like this all the time.
