Okay, that’s a stretch, but I couldn’t pass it up. These gnomes found themselves standing in some vintage pans that I found in our woods. They act like wind chimes (or wind clunkers, bur a better name)  when we have strong winds.

These little people don’t pass up a new opportunity to investigate and have fun. Hanging not far from the ripening blackberries, could be a good resting spot for a snack or shelter from the sun or rain.

Gnomes do have excellent blacksmithing and pottery skills to make their own bowls and pots. Ceramics, glassblowing, metalworking, carpentry and cloth making are but a few of their many talents. When you live to be 400 years old, there is a lot of time to perfect these skills! A few old rusty bowls is nothing more than something to play or hide in. All in fun. Have you ever sat in the spinning tea cups at Disneyland? See, there you go! All is well.
