Hidden "treasure"

While painting the top edge of the basement wall, I noticed a corner of fabric that I couldn't pull down. What kind of treasure was up between the floor joists?

I didn't have a flashlight handy, so I stuck my digital camera between the joists and took a pic.
We have homemade insulation created from ...

A bag of straw



A torn Wrangler jacket


A pile of clothes

Using a digital camera to peer into hard-to-reach places is a trick I picked up from a Minneapolis houseblog, American Four-Square Renewal, which used it to find an obstruction during a plumbing project.

This Old House discussion boards is having lively chat called Buried Treasure: Find anything interesting during your last move or demo?
