the love of a find....

we moved into our house 9 1/2 years ago...old house, old yard, oh well. one of my secret dreams is to find something cool hidden in the house- you know, like the attic under the floor boards or behind the lathe and plaster. well, we have done a lot of work to the house and yard and really the only thing totally cool i have found was this little plaster person. if you have any information on this i would love to hear it!!

i was moving flowers and was digging in the front side yard. i had dug up some roots from something long ago, and when i first saw this person, i thought it was more roots, but, upon a closer inspection realized that i had found a little person in the yard.

the other thing semi cool that i have found was a old coffee can hammered out flat to cover a hole in the floor in what is now our bathroom. we have been remodeling in that room and when we tore up the floor we found it...kind of cool. i have a vintage coffee can collection. so i will have to find something to do with the flat can....
