In Glasgow, Scotland, a local resident, upon closer inspection of her newly purchased house, found a human heart in it. Rather, part of it. The Daily Mail writes about this.
Previous homeowners stored the aortic valve in a jar of special solution in one of their kitchen drawers.
Catherine Gaston decided to photograph the find and send it to a competition held by a local furniture factory. The contestants had to send in unusual items that they found after the previous homeowners. The jury of the competition awarded Gaston the victory, and the woman received a new sofa as a gift.
