Forgotten Love Letter

We've started the renovation of our 40 year old bathroom, actually we haven't, Will, David and Benoit are doing the work this time and this is what they uncovered yesterday, a love letter from my darling; makes my heart sing.

    1. I think so too Lisa, and even better I think it can be kept, covered over by the new wall and waiting to be found again.

  3. How fabulous is that I think it should stay where it is! I love finding old things when decorating especially somebody elses house we have found old newspapers and photographs from previous occupants and I tend to put them back so others can stumble across them in the future. I wonder what the next occupants might think of the above!!!

  4. We just heard that the whole block of houses across the street from us will be bulldozed--along with a row of 6 massive poplars--to make way for a rental complex. We have to live more densely to be sustainable as a city, but I wonder how many love notes will be lost.
