Gnomey's Hat returned With Messages

I had to make arrangements to have the Gnomes hat picked up from the Gnomes door while I was out of town. Dang! this is requiring a wee bit of "sneakyness". I now have the hat and new notes from the girls. If it's alright, I think I'll start calling the girls "the flower girls". I think that is appropriate.
The round, hand written note is from Zinnia, and the "computer printed" one from Dahlia. It took me a while to figure out the notes. The hand written note is from six year old Zinnia. The way I figure it, Zinnia wrote the note on her own, and Dahlia of course saw it. Now Dahlia can't write yet, so she must have talked her mom or dad into typing her note and printing it off. The "jewel " on the note is the "present" from Zinnia.
I have it on good authority that the "flower girls" race each other to the Gnome door every day now, to check for activity. The future activities will most certainly include the suggestions made by followers of this adventure.

Are there any houses for sale in your neighborhood?

I think I'll just go ahead and move right on in!!

I think this is just the coolest idea! You really should sell the gnome houses on Etsy. If you put your story along with it, I think they would do even better!

You could even turn the story into a little children's book someday - you know, in your old age! A long time from now! :-)

How fun! I agree with Soukies... you should sell your gnome houses online! They're great!

I'm with the rest of the gang, gnome houses to go with your little gnomes. But it's the story that will grab people.

How cute is that little jewel. I can just see the "flower girls" every morning. I bet their parents have trouble getting them to brush their teeth or eat breakfast in the mornings now.

The continuing gnome saga...I look forward to each new episode.

What's next, Tom?
