Annabell's Attic

Meander through Annabell's Attic, and experience a heady déjà vu of fussy aunts and black-and-white television programming. This is the stuff that was in our grandmothers' houses that we wish we'd had the good sense to hold on to ... but how do we schlep around massive china cabinets filled with colored-glass collections? Here, you can give your kingdom for pedestals or a few marble pillars. Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who's the most ornate of them all? The idea of so much stuff--dolls, chandeliers, clocks, quilts, pocket watches, hair combs and thimble collections--makes us dizzy. We must recline on the leopard fainting couch. Where are the smelling salts?
