This is the piece as it looks ater it was removed from the roof top.   These were put on in 1869
This is what I did with it.  It looked like it could be a witch.   So, without too much work I placed it in a box, dry brushed a little black paint on it to accent the pointed hat and the front of the body.   I added some old typewriter keys for the buttons that have the date of the piece 1869.The box can then be filled with fall items.

I will be taking some pictures of other pieces and I will post to the site later in the week.  Although, those will not have a completed project to them

For some reason I have this passion for old architectural details…don’t know why.

What a great save!
