It’s too early for now yet here in Sequim, Washington, but the nights are getting a lot colder and wetter. Lots of fallen nuts and sunflower seeds for the gnomes’ delight. Best get the storage room filled before the snow! Firewood is plentiful and easy to find. Must be a busy time for our forest gnomes. Holidays ahead and good times for all.
http://www.whimsicalwoods.net accepts on line orders (via PayPal) and our gnome homes, bird houses, etc. make excellent and unique Christmas gifts for those hard to please, or special people in your life. Hint, hint!
All is well. See you at the Market.

|A Gnome Hat and a Gnome Home|
Always worn by both male and female gnomes, their hats are only removed at bed time. Likely while bathing and seated at the dinner table, also (?). I’ve read a gnome does not feel like a gnome unless they have their hat on. Never a bare head. Child gnomes receive their first hats at a very early age and are taught to care and repair it for the rest of their life, which is 350 to 400 years! The importance of this hat in helping the gnome is numerous because it is pointed and hard, it can protect them from falling nuts, small branches, snow, rain and sometimes predator attacking birds and animals.
The tall red gnome hat is the signature of a proud gnome.
