The Mysterious Gargoyle

As some of you might know we are getting a new roof for our thirties house. What a mess, but the project goes great. One day last week dear husband called me from the roof (thanks to mobile phones) and said he had found a strange cat head. I rushed up to see it, here it is:

We suppose it has been over the first main door many, many years ago. Out of its mouth came an electrical wire, looked very strange, but we think that a lamp has been coming out of its mouths to light up the main door in the past. It is looking quite scaring, not pretty at all, see close up here:

We had to break it down and we have made fun about that it has chased evil ghosts away and now hell will break out in our house, but the carpenter said that he was sure the gargoyle itself was an evil spirit and that it is good it is now gone.

PS: No hell has broken out yet! But if any of you know anything about these strange and quite ugly decorations let me know. :)

Vintage Books Hidden in the Roof

Two weeks ago we took down the roof of our house which is from 1930. Hidden in the roof was many strange things: lots of clay, old carpets, newspapers and books. I have scanned the frontpages of these three books, which of course are in Danish, but the illustrations says it all. I cannot find any publishing year, but since the house is from 1930, I believe the books to be so too or perhaps from the very late 20's.

The books are film novels, they are novels made from famous movies. I have translated the titles, I don't know the correct English title, sorry. I think the novels are quite "juicy", considering their age. I find them very charming and will read them soon.

Here we go - the first one is "The Merry Widow":

The second is "The White Slave Girl":

And the third is "The Court of Love":

My Fifties Style Dress and Vintage Gloves

Here is a photo of me in my fifties inpsired dress and vintage gloves:

The garnet parure I'm wearing is very old! My great-grandmother bought it used when she was young. I'm very fund of it. It is very beautiful. I'm on my way to the second confirmation - my sister's oldest boy. I also brought a vintage clear lucite purse with me.

And this week we have torn down our roof, inside the roof we found some very old newpapers and novels, (un)fortunately in Danish, but I will scan the cover pagees of the novels soon, they are from the very beginning of the thirties - vintage and lovely.
