Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays  and Create with Joy’s Inspire Me Monday. 

I seem to have developed an attraction to gnomes. I got one back in 2014. Here is Angel Phoebe posing with him.

Then this past November I bought this one.

Then I crocheted this one.

After Christmas, I bought 2 small ones and decided to make a wreath with them.

I covered a styrofoam wreath with yarn then I added some decorations and the gnomes.  I do need to give my mom credit, I had her wrap the yarn around the wreath- I told her it was occupational therapy. Thanks Mom,

  My slippers are wearing out on the bottom so I am going to turn them into gnomes.

I was feeling crafty so I also made this ornament , it looks like Angel Millie.

Penny will be here tomorrow with something fun planned- here is a hint-




  1. Sounds like good occupational therapy to me!😉 the gnomes look like a lot of fun. Keep us updated on the slipper gnomes!

  2. I love gnomes…..always have…..they look like little “mushroom people” to me with their hats! Anyway, can’t wait to see the “slipper gnomes” you will make. You are very CRAFTY so I’m sure they’ll be fab!

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. Angel Phoebe with her smile♥ I think it is easy to become fond of gnomes. I understand your attraction! You are a busy woman, Ellen. Turning your slippers into gnomes is going to be interesting. I have no doubt you will get it done and they will be cuties!

  4. Those are cute gnomes, and I think the slippers will make good ones too.

  5. OH Gosh, mom said she is useless in crafting. She admires those who can.

  6. You crocheted a gnome?! You are amazing! I love all those gnomes, maybe I should start a collection, they are so cute.

  7. I love them too. So cute.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  8. We love all your gnomes. We love your gnomes too and always wait with bated breath to see what you come up with next. Look forward to Penny’s hints tomorrow.

  9. We don’t get gnomes, but the second one looks furry. MOL Maybe it’s just mommy’s old eyes. MOL We can’t wait to see what Penny’s up too. Again, old eyes, we can’t make out the writing on the photo, but luvs the kitties. 🙂 Big hugs fur all.

    Luvs ya’

    1. My Grammie made my mom throw away her troll doll when she was little because it was bad luck and she got her an ice cream cone in place of it- bad memory. Now her great nieces have lots of trolls and she doesn’t make them throw them -They are from the Trolls movie- very cute. XO

        1. She would love the one that mom’s great niece has, it has pink hair -I think it is named Poppy from the movie Trolls- has she seen that? I bet she would like it. XO
