Gnome love

My gnomes were beginning to look like gnome ghosties; appearing to be completely capable to scaring young children out of our backyard just with one look!

They used to look like this

So I decided it was time to take them into the house for a fresh coat of paint.

Now they look like this

and this

Much better!

They look happy about their new paint jobs! Love the last one with the sunglasses and a cup of cheer!

My gran would repaint her gnomes every summer. I have some of them and they are kept indoors, the paint a bit too flaky now for outside... I just can't bring myself to cover over her brushstrokes. It's what made them hers! t.x
