I'd like you to look at this photo for a second and try to conjure up WHAT I was up to a week ago:
Do you like opening prizes on Christmas morning, on your birthday, or on special-occasion days? Beneath the wrapping paper is something, but you don't yet know what it is.
It could be a kit to build something or it might be some stunning jewelry in your favorite color. What? ... I have to PUT TOGETHER my own present?
When I was still building and remodeling each day, I was blessed to discover prizes wrapped up and hidden inside walls and other mysterious void spaces in homes.
A carpenter might have signed his work. A builder, remodeler, or other subcontractor might have left a beer, soda, or medicine bottle in a wall. Old newspapers were sometimes stuffed into cracks or voids.
It was a delight to discover these things in houses. Looking at the advertisements in a newspaper or magazine that's 50 or 75-years old is eye-opening. Yes, you could buy a gallon of milk for ten cents. New houses sold for, are you sitting down, $7,000 - what you might now pay for a deluxe appliance.
I strive to create wonderful time capsules in all my jobs to pay forward the joy I had peeking into the past. CLICK or TAP HERE to watch a short video of some things I've discovered in walls and what I include in my time capsules.
Never forget that future remodelers LOVE knowing when something was installed. That's why I sign and date my work.
CLICK or TAP HERE to see what I signed last weekend. There are STUNNING PHOTOS there as well as two videos.
