Gnome Sweet Gnome

When I saw all these gnomes gathered in the shop window of White Stuff (the shop that had the drunk gingerbread man, the squirrel-headed people, the biggest tosser poster, the caravan and the dog leaping through a hoop) I was reminded of Gail's Man's post the other day. As always the White Stuff's window display has nothing to do with the clothes they are selling, which is part of the fun, but is promoting 'Give A Gnome A Home', something we should all consider doing in these financially difficult times! Quite a few of the little chaps have tags around their necks saying who has adopted them. Cute!

Today is my birthday (yay for me!) and we are off to Bristol to see something very cool! More on that tomorrow.

May your day be filled with joy and happiness. Same birthday as my father's.

The gnomes remind me of the Seven Dwarfs.

gnomes always remind me of Snow White & the 7 dwarfs - cuz they're little, I guess

Happy Birthday Marley!

Hilda said...

Belated happy birthday, Marley! I tried visiting last night but Blogger was giving me major headaches. Looks like you had a great day, and I'm glad. I know you've mentioned that you weren't very religious, but I hope you don't mind that I pray for many blessings for you and your loved ones on your special day.

So, did you adopt a gnome for your birthday?

here is another belated Hippo Birdy Two Ewe!
The Gnomes look an awful lot like one of the 7 Dwarfs.

Bibi said...

Displayed like this, these gnomes are cute! But I don't like to see them in such numbers in a garden---the house across the street from my mother's is Gnome City.

And a happy birthday (now somewhat belated, as I type this on the 21st) to you!
