C pointed out the shadow play of the "Victorian gable trim" on this house. I learned the "proper" name and more info on the Cumberland Woodcraft Company website. They have a feature called a "Porch Builder," where you can design your own Victorian-style porch through their site. They also have other informational tools, like "How to measure roof pitch." Everything you need for decorating your home, inside and out, the old-fashioned way.

I like this gable trim; it reminds me of musical notes or small chimes that might ring when the wind blows. Maybe if we listen hard enough on a breezy night…
