St. Patrick’s day gnomes

Happy Friday! Are you feeling lucky? Well, this bunch of gnomes I have for you sure is! While the embroidered shamrock design is not new, the hat styles are this year. You get to choose the beard color (orange or light green/yellow) and the hat style (standing tall or slouched to one side).

Completely new this year is my gnome holding a plastic beer mug filled with…green beer! Could we have it any other way?

The thing about using thrifted materials is that they run out. If you see a hat style you like, know that the quantities are limited, so make sure to act quickly. Find these gnomes and others at my Etsy shop:

Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Mardi Gras and Valentine’s day gnomes

Hello! How is life treating you my friends? Today I do not have a new tutorial for you. The shop has been keeping me pretty busy these days. Actually, it’s pretty much all Mardi Gras gnome orders that just keep coming. No complaints! I added a new Mardi Gras gnome design to the store this year. This one is holding a King cake! Have you ever had this wonderful dessert? We made one for the very first time last year. We didn’t have a plastic baby to hide inside, so we used a Lego guy instead. It worked. My son got the lucky piece, so we’ll see if we can get him to make the King cake this year, as per the rule.

So here is Mr. King cake gnome, and if you’ve never had it, he also highly recommends it. 😉 We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

For those of you in the mood for love, or at least feeling optimistic about it, here’s a look at my newest Valentine’s Day addition to my shop. Just look at that adorable cuddly couple!

To see the video and rest of the listing for this couple, or any of my shop listings really, head on over to my shop:

I should be back soon with more Valentine’s and St. Patrick’s Day gnomes, time permitting. Also, I’m hoping to put a new video tutorial on youTube soon. Thanks for visiting my blog! Stay warm and healthy, wherever you are! 🙂
