Alice's Attic

The old trunk in the attic is ancient and dusty,
and filled with great treasures
though yellowed and musty.
There are lockets and letters
and old dolls with curls,
From days long ago
when grandmas were girls.

So much eye candy, so little time

There's so much social media out there it's hard to keep track. I can get lost on the computer all day between Pinterest, twitter, blogs, Facebook, yahoo groups, ETSY, etc. etc. I can skip around from blog to blog and spend hours before I even realize half the day is gone. I just don't have that luxury, I need to get working!!! So much eye candy, so little time! I tend to not spend the time I should updating all my own blogs, Facebook pages, twitter, etc.

Currently I've been busy with ETSY orders. I sure do have the world greatest customers!!!! Now that the summer is over and the T-shirts are taking a little break I look forward to getting a little more serious with my "Old Blue". That's what I call my Wishblade. I need to dust it off and get it singing. There are so many great Halloween projects that i've just been drooling over. But until then I thought I'd post some pics of projects i'm currently working on.

Greg actually walked around with the pink shirt on, haaaaa!!!
Endless Summer as always was a success! I was thrilled to finally unleash my new t-shirts and they were a big hit!! The day actually turned out beautiful. Not hot but not cold. Turns out we had the BEST neighbor this year. McCarthy and Kelly Real estate. They are amazing people!!!! Brian kept us "Brady'~ed" up. It's great to see so many people out on a beautiful day and also nice to see so many townies showing their support! Great music, food, shopping, contests, and as always a good time to mingle and catch up with everyone.

Thank you to all who visited my booth and for all the compliments on my product. I met a lot of wonderful people!!!!

Jen Whelan was the winner! She was the first person to come to my booth and mention she saw my post on Alices Attic on Facebook. She got to purchase the first Real Housewife shirt at cost!!!! Congrats Jen!!!!!

If you need to contact me my email is

Now it's time to fill some orders and get ready for the Holiday Showcase!

Iron's in the Fire

I always loved this time of year. Nantasket Beach is abuzz with the sounds of summer. Businesses are booming. Hull is such a beautiful place to call home. There have been some exciting changes for Alice's Attic. We have partnered with Hull Scooter Rentals.

You can buy our exclusive one of a kind T-Shirts on George Washington Blvd. right near Java Jungle.
I am also now consigning my crafty items in North Conway, NH at a great new store called Colby's Funky Finds located on 14 Kearsarge Street, North Conway, NH 03860
In just a few days my stuff has been doing very well. A match made in heaven so far!

I am also in the process of working with a new T-Shirt vendor!!! I should have my new shirts out in a couple of weeks!! I am so excited to have some new designs that I know everyone will love. I've gotten some great feedback. They will make for some fantastic holiday gifts too.
I may also be consigning some products in another location but I haven't worked out all the details just yet so more on that later.
As always Etsy is doing well and I will always be available to my word of mouth customers. I still intend on treating each and every one of you with the utmost respect and attention to detail.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concens.
Happy Summer!!!

Beach Treasures!

The summer is just around the corner. If only we could get Spring to show up!!! I can feel it though. Soon the dark gloomy days will be filled with sunshine, beach days, and boat filled waters! I can't wait to take advantage of the warmer weather!!!! I love to walk on the beach and see what I can discover. My favorite of course is Sea glass. I've always been captivated by each and every piece no matter how large or small.

Nantasket Beach Sea Glass

These are a few of my finds on my last walk. It's amazing how rare sea glass has become. I plan to save all my glass and dump it into the ocean way out to sea off Nantasket Beach. I'd much rather see it become beautiful sea glass than end up in a landfill somewhere. Who knows? maybe it will come back to me.
