Why you dirty rat!

Ever read about some housebloggers blogging that they find cool interesting things behind a wall they were tearing out? Like finding some old newspapers from the 20's, or maybe a letter from the original homeowners writing to their future residents, or maybe even some money! Well I was tearing out a wall for my wife's new craft room and this is what I found.





Yup that's right folks, I found a mummified rat! It was actually quite awesome to find, because it felt like little Egypt inside my house. What looks like happened was that this poor rat had made a nest inside the wall by our back chimney. Unfortunately for the rat a ton of plaster had fallen on top of him. Needless to say he didn't make it.

Well it's been nine month now and my wife started from here


And now we are here


Still no baby, I believe we are now 8 days past due and I think this baby is waiting till it gets to 80 degrees. I swear she gets the weather channel in there. I don't know why she is so stubborn her room went from this


To this!  Maybe I should have painted the room pink?


We got this vintage crib off of craigslist in Georgia, we had to drive 40 minutes into the boonies to find this place. The 2 pictures above the crib are finds from a few years ago. They are nursery rhyme prints of 'Little Miss Muffet" and "Goosey, Goosey, Gander".


We bought this shag rug from Marshall's. It actually matches the trim and ceiling color. The blue trunk and rocking horse were finds from a local antique store, Southern Crossing Antiques.
