I just don’t understand the cruel contraptions that humanfolk come up with to hurt helpful gnomes. A distant cousin of mine, Legolas, fell for the watering can baited trap and only has one hand to show for it.
I probably shouldn’t even be providing a link over to the wee sadistic folks over at Perpetual Kid. Perhaps if you’d like to issue them a wee complaint we can work together to prevent more harm to gnomekind.

I’ve never met a tax and spend gnome, and I’m not sure I ever want to … though I did like this wee, crafty blog Katywhumpus and the story about Tax & Spend. I couldn’t help but admire that stone wall …
I know it’s been quite some time since I posted, but I have been traveling quite a bit and don’t have a wee laptop. There are a few pics from the trip through Copenhagen which I’ll get up soon.
Søren and I got along like a house on fire, but I could barely make out a word he said in Danish. The nicest moments were standing across the street from Tivoli in the square watching the lights, the wee street performers, and the strange garbage statues in the shapes of crumpled tin cans and cigarette butts. Why?
I’m not so certain the entire gnome race needs a make-over from this man, Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen. I certainly like to vary the colours of my tunic from time to time, but heaven forbid I’d need to get down to heavy garden work in any outfit like that.
I do have a wee pair of pick axe cuff-links that I wear each year for a trip back to the birthday tree or the odd special occasion.
Poor Gordon. I assume there is a wee bit more to this story than just the placement of a garden gnome, though it would appear that Mr. MacKillop is receiving a lot of support from the public. Police may have better things to do than arrest civilians for placing garden gnomes on their property.
I wish I had a solar powered lamp.
If only my wee hands could hold it, I could be a lot more productive with an axe of this size.
I did my best helping to lift stones into the wall. Though, I am much better suited for scraping the pea shingle back into place around the base.
I’ve never heard of Jessica Ditto or Lawn Gnomes from Outer Space, so it’s hard to tell if this is another film in the gnomexploitation genre or not. I couldn’t find any other details and the Gnome Acticing Guild (GAG) hasn’t been contacted for any talent as of yet. It’s disappointing when gnome roles go to humans and CGI has made a large dent in the use of actual gnome actors on film sets.
I did hear that James McAvoy is the confirmed lead in Gnomeo and Juliet, and that Guillermo Del Toro, who directed Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy is taking on The Hobbit. I just love a wee film.
I’m not quite sure what to make of Gordon Mackie’s scuba gnoming venture. Is this some type of water boarding for gnomekind, or are my wee friends enjoying a new life under the sea? I didn’t hear any calypso music in the video but all the gnomes appear to have smiles on their faces. Water plants are not my specialty and I’ve never been very good at holding my breath.
Was passing the wet weather by browsing Etsy for a few wee gifts for friends and came across this pendant. Not sure it was something I would wear, but there may be someone out there that would fancy it.
I’ve come across all sorts of gnome related prezzies … who knew?
