Sunday Postcard Art - Gnomes

This is a true story.  Everyone has heard of Nome, Alaska, but has anyone heard of GNOME, Alaska?  Gnome is the heartland of Gnomerie.  The largest collection of gnomes in one place live in Gnome.  In fact, Gnome is the absolute centre of the Gnome universe.  We mere mortals suffer from homesickness when away from family and friends.  Gnomes suffer from GNOMESICKNESS.  Need I go on.  Let's hear it for the Gnomes.
My gnome was formerly of the garden variety but I have altered him somewhat.  He came to me through the Land of Google.  Other bits and pieces are from Dawn Inskip.

  2. Quite a Gnomiverse! He's a handsome devil with an ocular problem. I'm sure the gnomoptometrist can fix him up! Great fun, Marie!
