There's gnomes, and then there's Gnomes! This is one of the good looking ones I think. ;)
Very suave little gentlemen he is.
And, I'm a little bit embarrassed to say........... I have a minor 'thing' for gnomes.
Erm, um..... well there it is.
There IS a reason behind this strange attraction to gnomeness however.
When I was little, my mum and dad gave me this gorgeous book about gnomes (31 years ago this December) ...... here it is in all its glory.....
Oh how I loved that book, and still do, completely.
I pored over it for hour upon hour, taking in all the glorious pictures and delighting in the magical, whimsical, and mischievous nature of it all!
My handwriting was never great when I was little though - lol. (And, it's worse today I think - should have been a doctor!)
So, whenever I see a gnome that reminds me of that precious book, (which still takes pride of place on my bookshelf), I can't resist smiling, and remembering my mum and dad, and the gift they gave me 31 years ago.
