The Family of Gnomes

The Family of Gnomes
There are many different kinds of gnomes with no limit to one’s imagination on a lot more. We most often think of garden or woodland gnomes as those two seem to receive the most attention. The House Gnome population is growing, however. The good spirits they bring into a family home is hard to measure, but if welcomed, you’ll “gnome” it!

Each type of gnome has a little different style of clothing and mannerisms. However, they all have the tall, ever important pointed hat, usually red, but sometimes a little orange to green colored. Over the next few weeks, I will try to provide a little insight into the differences of the different types from what I’ve read and what I can imagine. I will try to include pictures if possible to help illustrate the visual differences.

A Boat gnome? Yep, a little fat fellow stuck inside a round tube like a floating device. Looks like a tall red hat on top of a fat cupcake. That would make a good fishing bobber I think. All in fun.

All is well here at Whimsical Woods. Big events in the near future. Keep in touch and visit our Facebook posts too - and Like us! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Whimsical-Woods/189899564463?ref=ts
