Great minds think alike...

Yesterday I recieved my enchanting gnome package from Melinda. I told myself that I WAS NOT going to open it until I got mine in the mail (I mailed mine today, I was a little late). It was a torturous 24 hours...but I made it...and when I opened it, look what I found inside!!! A whole gnome family complete with a gnome home!! SO FUN!
Are they not the cutest little gnome family ever?? You can see baby in the gnome home behind the family. And the GREAT thing about them is that I'm pretty sure Melinda and I were inspired by the EXACT same source. :) So they were an automatic *LOVE-LOVE* She also made a cute little card holder out of the funnest floral fabric, two different chapsticks and a very creative card. THANK YOU Melinda...they are all AWESOME! My three year old has already played with them...carefully with a watched eye, and wants to play with them some more...especially the gnome that is "his."

We've also been working in our yard some. I finally got around to a toad abode. I tend to collect vintage green pottery, like that 1970's shade of green...it's so ugly I just LOVE it. Well, one of my pots with a plant in it broke, so I turned it upside down for a very fashionable abode. I also stacked a few rocks to one side to support that "cracked wall", the rock pile is also exactly where the water drips from the faucet. I also planted a little plant next to it, I hope it survives, it was from a plant stores freebie corner.

Oh, and here's a teaser pic of what I sent to Melinda...the gnomes are pretty obvious....but hey...that's what June's ornament theme was...gnomes. :) hahaha

totally cute, Melinda always rocks!
As for the toad abode, I love it! I love that awful avocado green from the 70's too. Must be b/c I grew up with it in our house!

how funny that we both made gnomes modeled off the same thing....I made them because I love them so I am happy to be getting some made by you! I am so glad your little guy likes them too and it is just paper clay, acrylic paint and mod podge so they are safe as far as materials go.....I am so glad the terrarium made it too....I was worried....
