With Ben's dad here for a week, father and son have been doing a bit of work on our house. While removing some of the brick on our fireplace to prepare for the steel beam that is coming in early January (to hold up the 2nd floor once we remove the wall between the kitchen and living room) they found this:
Yeah, it's a pillowcase stuffed in the brickwork. Can anyone explain this to me? Previous renos on our place are really mystifying. I would love to know what past owners were thinking when they put this here.
