Gnomes! Yes, another collection. I collect ….gnomes. There I’ve said it LOL!
There’s just something about them. My daughter thinks they look like they’re always plotting something!
I got this nice big one from my Husband for Mother’s Day. Isn’t it nice that he supports my odd
This summer Target had a lot of little garden picks so every time we’d go I’d pick up a little Gnome.
Usually they face into the kitchen window so we can see them from inside but I faced them out to take photos (again my daughter thinks they’re creepy looking in). I think they’re cute and have personality (well...some of them do look a bit angry or worried)!
So now you know! Do you collect anything that other’s think of as “odd”? Tell me I’m not alone! One of my neighbors collects concrete swans and another one concrete deer. Obviously I’m living in the right neighborhood (although my gnomes are in the backyard)!~smile
On to other things…

Please contact me with your mailing address and I’ll mail the magazine out next week (maybe even this week if I’m by the Post Office).
I’ve had lots of inquiries as to the name of the flag plates and these teacups. The pattern of the cups is “Red Vintage Rose” by Peppertree Tabletops. I got one in a local store and one on ebay.
The flag plates are from Moda Home and I’ve read they are phasing out their melamine plate line. But the pattern is Picket Fence (she only has the little plates left). Shoot me an email if you find a place that still sells the dinner plates and I’ll update this post to include that info as it seems a lot of people would like these.
Edited to add: You can find the plates at http://www.cspost.com/. Thank you Susan!
