A Tiny Makeover

My better half has spotted this poor gnome thrown out on the streets. (Hey, they could’ve just put him next to some flowers!) If you gnome how things roll around here, he proudly brought it home. (He’s a good man.) So this poor gnome definitely needed a Makeover.

He is as light as a feather, so sanding him off didn’t seem like a good idea. I didn’t wanna take away his original charm, so only went for tiny changes with a splash of color and some nail polish. (You have blue from Eurovision, obviously.)

While he probably will have a decent makeover eventually, I went for light changes.

A good clean and some new flowers. Only taped on, as he has suffered enough glue inflicted damage as it is.

The new hairdo is nice but damn, the eyes were hard. He is good to go for all the Gnomevember celebrations.

Many of you are still in the middle of Spooktober but Gnomes, for some, count as scarry, too. Only a few weeks to go and it will be time for gnoming around!

We called the new gnome Heinz. Do you like it?

Are you as excited about Gnomevember as I am?

  1. Good shot with the squirrel. We used to have red squirrels in England. I remember seeing them when I was very young, but someone thought it would be a great idea to import the grey squirrels from North America and the took over and wiped out all the red ones. They only survive in a few places a few islands. They are still quite common in Scotland apparently. Do they have gnomes in Oz? I don’t ever remember seeing any there.

    1. There are most certainly no squirrels in OZ. That’s why my better half has a whole smiling face just reserved for them. It kinda resembles my face seeing Koalas in the wild

  2. Well aren’t you clever touching up that little bash mark! Now his original owners will want him back. And kudos to your hubby for finding that gnome a home!

    1. Oh, thank you Linda! He has a tiny hole in his hands, so he must’ve been holding something, which was probably glued on him. This was my quick and dirty approach. I really do hope, it gave his former self some justice

      1. Well your quick and dirty approach worked – he has re-established his credibility with his gnome pals, just in time for Gnomevember.

    1. Thank you Herb! It all started with the hole in his hand. I hope he carried flowers before not some shovel or something super many ๐Ÿ™‚ … Hopfeully he’s happy! He didn’t run away yet.

  3. Nice work, rescuing Heinz ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve never heard of Gnomevember before, but November is dark and rainy around here, it could use some cheering up ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh, just check here, I’ll fill you in on all the Gnomevember topics! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wouldn’t it be funny, if this became a hallmark holiday in the future?

  4. Poor little guy! Thank goodness you rescued him! He and the squirrel are friends now. I’m sure the other gnomes will welcome him to the family. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Maybe I’m a bad gnome mum, I really need to work on bringing them together more. They are just all so different! Thank you for your input, it’s time for a decent Gnomevember party ๐Ÿฅณ

    1. Thank you. The others are still giving him odd looks but you shall not judge a book by its cover. Who gnomes what he’s been through? A Schnapps here and there and they should be just be fine
