2/7 - Attic 1970's style

It could be that it is my luck. But I think that it is weird when people sell you a house and leave piles of items inside it. Not to mention that (which we took care of before we moved in) but now the attic is on my to-do list because of this:

I know it is hard to understand why people would leave such beautiful and useful items, like:
1968 wall paper, a golf bag with the clubs, and a piece of multicolored blue/red/orange carpet. Wish the carpet had been bigger, I could have gotten it bound! Do you have people that left stuff at your house? What have you found in your attic? I have a long ways to go before this project is over!

    It happens to my mom's BF. He never had to decorate his condo because the previous owner left a bunch of paitings, pictures, books, etc.

    He moved into a new house in December...same thing. The guy left a bunch of furniture: living room set, dining table, bed. It's weird.

    I have to say that I like the wallpaper. The people we bought our house from didn't leave anything. But they said that the house was in tip top shape and that was sooo far from the truth!

    oy yes! we have a taken-apart baby crib (i told my boyfriend not to get any ideas); enough colapsed packages to move half of the house; old curtains; half broken chair; old paint canisters and other junk. oy. it's all cleaned out now (had to add more insulation so it all had to go) but it took a while.
