I'm most excited about finding some beading that was underneath the 100 year old newspaper! I am going to assume it belonged to my O'Sullivan girls. I'm having a friend restring it into a bracelet for me!
You can't read much of the writing on this postcard, but you can make out one name: Margaret O'Sullivan! She is one of the daughters of the family that lived here from 1904-1917 that I'm kind of obsessed with.
Then we spent an afternoon up in the attic, pulling up boards that probably haven't been moved in a century, digging through insulation (which was probably a bad idea, in hindsight) and remains of mouse bedding, looking for any little treasure. It was a game of "one more board" that went on and on.
