Lights Out

Do you ever wonder if gnomes celebrate the taking down of Christmas lights from our yards? 

I would imagine that fairies love the twinkling bulbs and icicles. They do tend to be a little showy but gnomes are more comfortable in the shadows.

Maybe I'll leave a little cheese out for them tonight to go with their wine and bread.

  1. My gnomes are totally spoiled. Right now they are hanging out
    on my bedroom dresser sneaking the leftover wine from New Year's.

    1. I have a large gnome who watches over the pool. The other little ones hang out by the wood stove,probably depressed that we haven't started a fire yet this year.

  2. Give 'em enough wine and the gnomes themselves will be lit.

  4. That's so fun! I love the idea of gnomes! I don't have one, but would love one. Little red and white mushrooms to!

    1. Raked the leaves in my yard and discovered over a dozen patches of mushrooms. Immediately grabbed my camera and the gnomes on the shelf! Always good to have a gnome or two around the house!

  5. They could probably care less about the lights, and more where the copious amounts of beer and wine are.

    1. Only wine in this area. If you leave a little beer out, the snails hog it up!

  6. That gnome looks like Andy Capp with his hat pulled down over his eyes like that.

  7. That's exactly what we need at our house, a gnome. I wonder how you get one?

    1. This may sound weird but I never said I wasn't so no promises broken! I found that if you go out in the evening, light a little white candle and invite all the Elementals to your space and let them know it is a peaceful and accepting space, you will have a rush of happy souls. When I lived in the country, a Brownie (I swear I haven't been drinking) showed up and stayed with me for the rest of the time I lived there. He wouldn't move to town with us but stayed with the trees and pastures.

  8. This is such a cute gnome! I love gnomes. I put up a whole bunch of them all over my garden...much to the dismay of my neighbours :)
