Today I Googled “what do gargoyles in front of your house represent”. Walking in our new neighborhood–our lovely, quiet, nature-surrounded neighborhood– I pass by not one, but two, homes with decorative gargoyles.
Oddly enough, I had just learned a couple of weeks ago that statues of lions in front of a home is an Italian symbol of having either paid off a mortgage or being wealthy enough to not need one. Hm.
My Google search revealed that gargoyles are not in fact the French proclamation of “Hey, everyone, we paid off our mortgage!” but rather there for the purpose of warding off evil…or acting as a water duct system to avoid damage on 21st century architecture. So, power to our gargoyling neighbors.
1) All the natural light pouring in through the large windows as I cook, grade, or fold laundry.
2) Our little table, that can transform to seat 10, and that it’s by the window.
3) A laundry room
And there is art to be hung, a pantry to be arranged, and clothing to be stored, but we love it so much! Cutting our commute in half has also relieved stress and freed up time for togetherness and enjoying these summer evenings.
All are welcome, so come by and visit!
