Susan aka Kitty Mommy’s entry in the Found Objects Found Art contest. My goodness, the previous owners really were named Mr. & Mrs. Mess; I thought you’d been kidding about that, Susan!
Imagine my surprise and excitement when I found these cardboard tubes and manila envelope in the foyer closet of our new home! Inside the tube marked “Original House Plan”, I found the original architect’s sketches (4 of them) for our house. As I’ve mentioned previously, we bought the place from the original owners, Mr. & Mrs. Mess, who built the place in 1961, and whose names appear at the bottom of one of the sketches. I had all 4 framed and I have now hung them proudly, 2 in our dining room and 2 in our living room.
Inside the “Instructions, Etc.” envelope, I found manuals for all the original appliances, etc. I can’t believe the owners saved them all these years! What a treasure!
