I found my favourite childhood story book at the thrift store a little while back.
Oscar chose it for story time and to my joy he fell in love with the book as I did at his age.
He learnt a new word ~ finial. He was intrigued that they were placed on houses to frighten witches away. He asked if our house had a finial. Though our house is of the right era, sadly we don't have one.
So while on our afternoon walk we went finial spotting. We found some superb examples.
Then we found the 'ultimate finial'......
