Yo (grand)momma’s attique

Going through grand-mother’s attic today turned up two violins, one her husband’s father used to play to square dancers, and the other from a distant relation she had befriended a number of years. Both are in disreputable condition and are probably useless since they’re ~75-100 years old.

Also turned up were old college advertizing calendars from the 1970s or early 1960s, endless Christmas matter, old bags that “ladies” used to hold their yarn when they sewed, but mostly Christmas matter that I think is ugly.

What else… styrophoam crafty things that are getting given away because someone else can and will use them, unlike us. Old hand-made stuffed toys and a game called “Blockhead!” that, amazzingly, has a Wikipedian page on it!.
