I have to apologize for not blogging in a week or so. I have been busy Salvaging my new house. Actually, it is far from new! The house was built in 1923 and it is the first house that my husband and I have owned. It is a complete fixer! When we got the keys to the house, it had badly stained fuschia carpet, 80's drapes and loads of paneling. We took out the carpet and refinished the original hardwood floors. We also, took all the paneling off the walls and found this lovely portrait underneath. It has since been covered by new drywall. I wish we could have Salvaged it somehow, but it was painted on a crumbling plaster wall. This house has been a lot of work, but just like the clothes I sell on my site, I see its potential!

What a neat picture! It makes me curious about the people that put it there. I wish you could have saved it too. I bet that house has some great history.
I'm so glad the wood floors were salvagable. yay!
