we’ve been absolutely totally busy working on the new house all the time! Lots of details and stories over here: http://www.limingtonfarmhouse.org/blog/ among other delights, It’s been great discovering layered bits of old wallpaper around the house.

the old chimney in the kitchen was covered with wallboard; behind that we found many layers of wallpaper and horsehair plaster over the bricks!

We got a tour of our neighbor Mike’s place, also a historical house undergoing renovation. He had some great old wallpaper too!

  1. I envy you your gorgeous old bits of wallpaper! So far we have only found a tiny bit of awesome wallpaper in our house–most has been bad 80’s paper :/ I especially love that chimney 🙂
