Just because I love Gnomes...










While visiting my parents last week, I discovered one of my most treasured books from childhood. simply titled "Gnomes". I recently heard Heather Ross mention the book, and that as a child she believed that they there were gnomes like these living in her oven. I think it was her appearance on "The Martha Stewart Show". It was so nice hearing that I wasn't the only one who had dreams that our woodland friends were real:)

If you aren't familiar with this book, you must stop by your library and have a look. This is one of the most wonderfully illustrated books of all time.

Enjoy a few photos here. Do any of you have fond memories of looking at the pages from this book?

THANKS for bloggin' about that! I WANT THAT BOOK! I just bid on an original 1977 copy on ebay! I hope I win! HOW FUN! I wish I would have had this book to finger through when I was little, hopefully my little ella will enjoy it instead.

I didn't have that book, but apparently my fav TV show as a kid was based on it - David the Gnome!

Good Luck Emily! It will be your little Ella's favorite book, I'm sure! I believe mine is from around 1977 or so. It will be a treasure if you win!

My grandparents bought a cutout of the first gnome pictured when they came to visit me as a baby. They made it into an ornament to commemorate my first Christmas, and they passed it on to me last year to celebrate *my* baby's first Christmas. I didn't know it was a book!

Oh my goodness, I had the same book when I was a little girl! I wonder if my parents still have it? You're lucky you still have yours.
