While antiquing in Bay City, we found these little gnome candles nesteled in "snow". At least their wicks can keep them warm.
In the same antique mall, we tripped over these gems.
Even hidden in the ferns and weeds, this stately gnome makes quite a statement with his red cap.
The fiery cap is the only give away that this lump of stone is actually a guardian of the flower bed. In cognito?
In an online consignment shop, Olcha and Sven (really, that's their names) sit patiently.
After noting several more gnomes in our shopping and garden watching ventures, we can't help but think, "Who thought of the garden gnome in the first place?" Any thoughts?
