Gnome Homes - more, more!

Gnome home with skylight
Gnome home from apple stump
Gnome home with hollow core
I have been asked to show more pictures of the various gnome homes that I have made. No two are the same, but the similar likeness is there. These gnome homes are best set into a wooden area surrounded by large and small plants and perhaps other trees. Gnomes like their homes to be a little obscure and blended. Set out by themselves is not in keeping with their written nature. The gnome homes can be as tall or fat as you want, or both. You can get a small one to sit  over your kitchen sink, in a window box if you want. Make yourself a cute little gnome village to look at while doing the dishes.

For maximum affect at night, I would recommend 12 vac low wattage outdoor lighting with a soft spot focused on each home for the best whimsical look.

I am currently building a gnome village for a client with three gnome homes on and around a large old, overgrown cedar stump. I’ll share those pictures here in a month or so. It will be a very special feature to a wooded back yard.

So, more pictures it is. Next to gnome doors, I’ll be offering  whimsical gnome windows. Add a door and some windows to the base of a tree along with a few other forest finds, and you will have tuned your simple tree into an imaginary gnome home. Got to be fun and keep you smiling!

All must be well.
