What's in the wall

Greetings Everyone,

Look at what was found in the wall this weekend!  This beautiful piece was found by Maureen after peeling back layer after layer of old wallpaper and plaster and lathe  It  reads:"You cannot conceal love".  Frankly it doesn't look like this mermaid woman conceals anything much does it!  But someone did.  Maureen found that this sentiment and accompanying image was very important to someone. So much so that  it was lovingly sourrounded with pearls, beads,jewels and even a few shells. Beautiful isn't it?
Wondering what you might find in the wall?
If so you can join me on Sunday March 4th.  I still have a couple of spots left in class so hurry and sign up before they are all gone!
