gnomes, gnomes, gnomes - how do you like it, how do you like it?

I've never been sure if garden gnomes are absolutely incredible or totally creepy. I would like to think that most people enjoy their charms: that little hat, those big boots, that cute chubby-cheeked face (?) but I also completely get why people might think they were freaky.

Despite that, since moving to a flat with some outdoor space at last (woop!), the only things I have really wanted out there are some strawberry plants and a garden gnome. I'm not exactly sure why, but they are the things I feel it is necessary to have. I'm a grown-up now, after all... and grown-ups have garden gnomes, right?

Do you think it would totally defeat the object of having an outdoor space if I were to fill it with terrariums?? Because if not then I could get all kinds of different shaped terrariums and have a different teeny weeny gnome hiding inside each one. Think of the fun!





And since woodland themes and the like are so "in" at the moment, it would seem gnomes are everywhere - not just in the usual places - check these out...


How do you feel about gnomes? Cute or creepy?

I think they are cute (for the most part). It's kind of like Santa, every now and then you see one that is scary - lol! But I have a few next to my tiny little fish pond. I think they chat after hours. :) Thanks for including Frida! Pam

Hi Pam! I agree - there are the odd creepy Santas out there, just like the odd creepy gnome. I just love your Frida though!

I'm making a terrarium at the moment... maybe I should put a gnome in it!
