Period features: Our Lady of the Hallway

July 28, 2010

We inherited only one internal period feature when we bought our wreck of a house: Our Lady of the Hallway. Even though we’re ‘going modern’, it seemed too cruel to evict our Lady when she has lived there since the house was built. So we’re going to keep her, restore her, reinstate her and love her.

Here she is at home and looking very pursed-lipped about the prospect of  change:

The builders have taken her down for safekeeping so she doesn’t accidentally find herself in their skip. She’s having a holiday in an old drawer. I may even get my duster out as she’s got a very unbecoming moustache of dirt. Here she is on her summer break:

If you know of anyone who might be able to restore her, I’d love to hear.

And if anyone’s got a suggestion for a name for her, there’s a packet a polos in it for you.

More soon.
