... which made it a good day to go outside and look for gnomes.
And I found one!!! She was standing very still, waiting to say hello to a birdie, so it wasn't too hard to get a photo. But very shortly after I took the two photos, both Ms. Gnome and Ms. Birdie disappeared into the woods.
Oddly enough, this gnome is the spitting image of Kylie, who has a Forever Friendz head on a Tonner body.
This wonderful felt gnome hat was a gift from Ren, in Australia. Ironically enough, I believe the designer of the mushroom fabric is also from Australia. The fabric (at the hem of the pinafore) is designed by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches, produced by Lecien Fabrics. Here is a link to her website http://cinderberrystitches.typepad.com/cinderberrystitches/inspiration/
(And another "thank you" goes out to Auntie Annie, who gave us the robin bird!)"And now .... for something entirely different ...."
I call this picture "Gnome, gnome on the range!"
(N.B. - No gnomes were harmed while taking this picture.)
