The Gnomes are Home

Yesterday (Friday) we went to the statuary "farm" in Canada. As you can see, it is quite an amazing place. Every imaginable statue, urn or bird bath could be found. Some of them had been sitting outside for years! If you wanted an old weathered version, you could usually find it. After looking around we decided not to get the "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" that were also available. To be honest, a 4 1/2 foot tall Snow White was kind of creepy!

Instead we came home with these three fellas. There is also a fourth gnome, but he was riding around on a turtle... I just didn't really like the lazy, little guy. After all, these three are working hard with their hoe, watering can and wheel barrow and he's just riding his turtle around. The nerve!

I placed them around my gardens. I like that they are all a little weathered and don't look brand, spank'n new!
I can see this little guy out my kitchen window.

They make me smile!

PS -Warning. Christmas. In. July.

We also had an out of season tag-a-long. Love his chippy feet/boots and paint. I can't resist anything to do with Christmas :)

  1. I disagree. The one on the turtle is not lazy, he's just smart.

    But they're very cute :)
