Did you ever wish you were a gnome?

On a recent trip to Germany to go to some grocery stores, Jos noticed a bunch of large toadstools along the roadside. You know the gnome kind ... red with the white dots on top just like the gnome homes.

That prompted me to make this crocheted miniature gnome hat...

Which prompted another idea which is still a work in progress so keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more...



  1. Oh, to be a gnome! Lovely photos. I finally found some vegetable bouillon...but haven't used it yet. Hope you are doing well. Take care!

  2. Too bad I can't lend you a dozen of my gnomes to use. LOL
    I have way more than that of course. You could use them under and on your little tree.
    I just went to Pat Catans and bought a little tree for Dads grave and a wreath for Fawn. It should be the other way
    around, but Dad has a vase to use for the tree and Fawn does not. They are side by side anyway so they can share.
    Love your tree in progress and the hat.
    Love you, Mom

  3. You making some little gnome figurines?

  4. Love your little gnome hat and the tree with the mushrooms. I read your mom's comment and had never really thought about putting a little tree on a grave for the holidays. I'm deeply touched by this and am going to do it for my mom, dad, sister, and brother who are side-by-side in the cemetery. Mom Loved Christmas so much and my brother was 14 and sister 4 when they passed so I love the idea of it. I decorate the graves at other times but I'd never thought of this. Have a wonderful day Heidi.

  5. When I was young I often wished that I was a tiny little fairy living in the woods. Does that count? :-) Oh gosh, I haven't sorted through my CD's yet. I think that project is going to have to wait til January. Right now I'm using most of my spare time to get the house spotless. (trying anyway) We've got company coming for Thanksgiving and then again at Christmas.

  6. Hello Heidi
    I did not know that those red with dots mushrooms were real, thought they were just from art. Very cute!
