this one in Stonington. I thought it was a singular occurrence (and possibly built for gnomes.) But as with many things, I was wrong, and not only do they exist, but they tend (yes, I'm basing a tendency on two examples, very scientific) to be small, and - to modern eyes at least - quite whimsical. I normally hate the word whimsical, but that's probably because I mostly encounter it on people's blogs, where they're using it to describe their writing, their tastes, or themselves. Which should be punishable by a large fine. But this building...it's whimsical, is it not?
Malplaquet; surely there's more use in normal conversation for emplaqued!)
