Baby socks and bones

Not sure if it gets any weirder than finding old baby socks and bones in your bathroom wall.


A number of guests had mentioned that the house smelled kind of funny when they were standing in the hallway. Since the bathroom was already torn up I decided to get to the bottom of this 'old smell' and stuck my shop vac attachment up into the wall. Turns out, someone a long time ago had insulated it with old linens, curtains, burlap wallpaper, and baby socks. Then, some sort of rodent came along and made a nest in there, filling it with twigs, pecans, and garbage scraps.

While cleaning this out, the detail attachment of my shop-vac got clogged up.  What came out was really cool...
