The Devil's In The Details?

We've now lived in our home for almost a full month and we've now had guests. I love guests! Hosting should be my profession... A friend and Jacob's sister were both here over the weekend-and it now feels more like home! We got a grill last week (thank you Browns!) and grilled for the first time, and ate at our like-new dining room table (thanks Micah!) for the first time. We played a game called Golf and Slaps- and made names for ourselves along the lines of "Ce Magnifique", and "Spartacus" and referred to ourselves in the third person. And in the midst of all this merriment we learned a few new things about our home.....

For example- hanging in the fireplace is the devil... literally. And not some cute devil- but some naked, goat-footed, stub tailed creature with a pitchfork hanging to a chain and clawing for dear life into a higher world... Does that not CREEP THE WEEBIES out of anyone else??!! We find it so odd and intend to cut the devil down as soon as we figure out how to replace him with something else..

What have you ever seen hanging from a fireplace flue. Is this normal?

And- what do you suggest we replace the devil with? Because putting an angel in the flames seems... even creepier.
