|Circa 1985 - Gambrel as originally designed. The bushes are so tiny!|
|The hiding place - under the floor boards|
And sure enough, as we dug around under there, we found these two envelopes.
Adorable? Don't you think?
I promptly sent a note to the previous owner and he drove up the next day to pick them up (I thought he should be the one to open them!). And we weren't disappointed. They really are sweet. The first envelope contained a letter:
Dear who is reading this. My name is Emily. I put this here year
Page 2 1987. I HOPE you like living Here. This is a mystery to Me. I don’t know you
Page 3 and you don’t know me. I won’t know what year it is. This nook is dusty.
Page 4 Ah, ah-CHOO!!!! boy! I have a sister named Ellen.
Page 5 I’m very tall. I have short hair and glasses I like to create stories. I also like to talk to myself.
Isn't that cute? I'm so glad we found it. The other envelope included a drawings (obviously from little sister Ellen) A nice bit of history, that will go back to their authors (who are now in their 30's!).
It makes me think everyone should bury their own time capsule! What a great idea!
