Greetings, dear reader!

I hope you are enjoying the gnome magic cottage has gained a sort of gnomey-homey-ness of late.

Chillin' Wit My Gnomies

However, with Valentines Day on the horizon, I find it hard to contain myself...see the background of my blog? I made it myself! Imagine, me fumbling about with HTML! Frightening to be sure...however I WON'T be trying to FEED it to anyone, so perhaps a safer venue for me than, oh...say...COOKING?!?!

SOooooooooo, I decided to "marry (pun intended) the two ideas: Gnome and Valentines Day! The above is an example of the gnomey goodness that awaits you at your local Gnome Emporium...

OR, if you'd like to make some gnome-awesome valentines yourself...try this on for size:

I'll be making my OWN version this weekend. I'll be doing a lot of "show and tell" when I return...I will be completing my gnome tags, gnome junque book, and gnome valentine in the next day or two. Try to contain your excitement! LOL!

Until then,
Paula Clare
Your Friendly Neighborhood Gnome Lover!

Oh Paula, I am laughing! Can you hear me! What an adorable photo of your Gnome family! Wow! is your blog beautiful!!!! I couldn't wait either to change my blog. We are always ahead of the holidays in crafting anyway, I say! My husband is away again; it's cold, there is nothing but laundry and playing to keep my company! Not a moment of guilt! Still laughing! Have a great weekend. E
