Our Biggest Mess: Stuff We Found in the Walls

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

Unless we find more hidden treasure when we remodel the second half of the house, this is the last of the “Stuff We Found in the Walls” posts; sad, huh? I’m hoping for a find on the other side of the house, too. These were also found in a forgotten box in the attic of the garage.
The box had a pile of the most charming little workbooks you’ve ever seen.

I loved the front cover of one of them. Patsy had written “Kelvin Lay” on the front. I assume this is a boy she had a crush on. Isn’t that cute!

There was also a stack of violin music in the box ranging from beginner to first chair. One of the very first things that we found in the walls was a violin case. I was so excited to open it. The violin inside had been terrible damaged in the heat of the walls, but it was still a great find. We gave it to the previous owner’s kids before I started blogging and I never even took a picture of it. I assume this music went that violin.

  1. I think I would mod podge the pictures from the book on a kid’s school desk. The illustrations are darling!

  2. How fun! The only thing we’ve found in our remodeling–an empty whiskey bottle that fell from the insulation above the kitchen. Pretty odd 🙂
