One weekend, after a particularly hectic week, I made myself a cup of tea and snuck up to the attic to find some peace and quiet and to poke around.  Then, in a delightful moment, I came across a wonderful treasure that softly called out to me.  What a great feeling….

So come to our “attic” in the peace and quiet of our lovely historic hall in our small town and find a delightful treasure to take home. These are the artists who have created the “treasures in the attic” :
