Mrs and Mr Gnome
























I gave in and finally bought myself two cement gnomes I had been eying off for some weeks. Every time I went back to the little nursery over near Wauchope (NSW) they were still there. I can't believe no one liked them as much as i do. So I figured they were meant for me.

I was quite taken by the expressions on their faces especially the lady gnome.

She looks how i feel when I have done something a bit bad and am enjoying the memory of it, or am anticipating a bit of mischief. And he just looks very happy and sort of satisfied. Don could always pick when i was up to no good or had an idea which might upset some local bureaucratic clown...I'd be smiling for hours and then start to chuckle to myself. He would be in like Flynn on any idea like this and sometimes we'd nearly choke laughing planning this or that venture.

Its funny to see something made like this which fits exactly how it was.

This pair are more than welcome at my back door
and needed.

Agree with your thoughts about Mrs Gnome. Mr Gnome looks to have Aboriginal blood.

Mrs Gnome looks naughty, mischievous and happy with life all rolled into one. Mr Gnome looks - well maybe thoughtful. Love the pair of them:-)

Absolutely apt for you! So cute! I have a pelican that I eyed off for some time, and I just had to go back and buy him...gosh he is heavy!

Usually gnomes give me the creeps, but these are so well detailed that I actually like them.

MC: You make me laugh so much! I love your mischief and light spirit. Someday, I too, shall bring home a Gnome or 2. I have 2 flaming pink plastic flamingos I put out in the snow drifts during the winter.....but these Gnomes are special indeed. Wait until the light is just right.......and you may hear some whispers and chattering going on....

:^)

hugs to you--hope you warm and well

Love 'em. There is a lady here who looks just like Mrs Gnome.

Pigs talk to me in the same way until I just have to have them. Ornamental pigs that is.

Sling...yes very charming and very bad.

CS TWO PINK FLAMINGOS...wow. I bought our eldest to large pink flamingos last Christmas..she loves them...they were mighty heavy but when I visit her place, they make me laugh for some reason...PINK!

Foxymoron...I hope she is a nice and naughty lady
