Gnomes Built A Swing!

Lots is finally happening as far as the Gnomes are concerned. Been kinda slow, because the flower girls have been home, and the weather is getting nice. It's been difficult to get some Gnomey things done. But I was able to hang a little Gnome swing in the girls backyard. I did not tell anyone about it. Just let them find it themselves. While I was out of town today, they found it. The flower girls were playing out in the yard with my visiting granddaughter. So, it's my granddaughters words and explanation of events. "We were running through the yard, and all of a sudden, Zinnia let out a scream." My granddaughter said that she thought Zinnia had got stung by a bee. But Zinnia said, " NO! LOOK, a Gnome swing". Next they all ran around screaming, "A Gnome swing, a Gnome swing". You will have to click on the photo to see the swing.

Also, on Friday I went to a garage sale and bought the 13th Anniversary Edition of Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen's book GNOMES, for 25 cents. Since I already have one at full price ($24.95), I gave the "new" one to my granddaughter; who in fascinated by Gnomes.

I have a magazine with a pattern for gnome hats for kids. It is really cute and looks simple. If you are interested in me sending it to you email me.

Oh, great idea, Tom and it's so cute. You know the Sunshine girls are going to want a merry-go-round next, don't you?
How old is your granddaughter? I bet she's loving all this, too.

My granddaughter is 10, and is in on the secret. Which makes it even more tricky. But she won't "spill the beans".
