Whimsical Wednesday

Lately, I've had a certain obsession with garden gnomes, I think since Travelocity's "Roaming Gnome" commercials came out. Let me tell you these things are SO hard to find for a reasonable rate. I have dedicated about a year of yard saleing to finding one. No such luck. My Grandma Carole and my Mother-in-law have bought me some pretty cute garden statues, A mushroom that I spray painted, a tiny gnome, a little frog, etc. I really only plant the garden so that I'll be able to put statues and ornament in it.

This week's Whimsical Wednesday is dedicated to my current obsession, Garden Statues.


Classic Gnomes, why yes, I will take four!

Tiny garden house for fairies and sprites, a must have.

Unicorns to go with the flowers? A magnificent idea.

Garden Unicorn found Here


A door for the garden village? Complete with minuscule mushrooms? Yes this does exist.

And what garden village is complete without creatures that actually exist in real life?

That's why there's the Jim Shore Raccoon! found Here

Here's a few photos  I found buried in my hard drive. I took these last summer at a cabin in the White Mountains:


A very special garden statue, my good friend Mickey:
He's the reason I won't be posting for the rest of the week, since I'll be in the happiest place on Earth.

I'll be back on Monday with pictures and stories.

Enjoy Your Whimsies ,

  1. I have two from Kmart a few years back. Gnomes that is. There are two at an antique store here and I am too afraid to look at the price but they are so freakin cute. I will try and get a pic of them next time I go to show you. I also plant a garden just to have my gnomes and mushrooms. Though since moving here the kiddos stole them and my flamingos and use them for their yard decoration for their play house. Have fun can't wait to see pics. :)
