This past Summer we completely remodeled our kitchen.
When I say "completely,"  
I'm not kidding - 
the floors were torn out all the way down to dirt.
The ceiling and walls were all torn out as well, 
and that's were we found this...

"H.C. CARR Sep 15, 1884"

I asked the workers if we could cut it out.
I had some doubts seeing as it was on an outside wall and all,
but they said, "No problem."

So, now, I have this wonderful piece of our home's history,
and I can't decide what to do with it.

Any suggestions?

And, if you know anything about Mr. Carr,
I'd love to hear about him as well.


  1. Oh, that is so interesting. I would frame it & hang it in your foyer or living room. What a great conversation piece!

  2. I'd hang it with some old twine to make it look a little "rustic"
