Lawn gnomes are cheerful and yet...creepy. They are garden dwarfs whose origin was in 19th Century Germany. Even though they are best known as happy little garden statues that are protectors of our prize begonias and daisies, they are also considered the object of pranking or "gnoming" someone.
I even devoted a horror short story in my anthology, "Don't Go There! A Flash Horror Anthology" because, well, you never know what they're doing at night while you're sleeping....
I used to find Gnomes a bit creepy until I watch the animated movie "Gnomeo and Juliet" and saw how much fun they have when the humans have left the house.ReplyDelete
I would seriously love to have a collection of them. I think they're more powerful in groups.ReplyDelete
they are part of my "geebies" bag i keep in the back of the closet. except i have a lucky gnome on computer desk... he has not worked yet.ReplyDelete
Lawn gnomes should be banned as a hazard to Bigfoots. How many Bigfoots have been injured by these ornament??? Imagine stepping on one of these pointy decorations! Contact your Congressman today and urge him to save Bigfoot feet!ReplyDelete
Well, Barry, those lawn gnomes are a step up from lawn jockeys--imagine what part of the anatomy those struck Bigfoot in.ReplyDelete
Sharon, if you think that a cavalcade of garden gnomes is freaky, wait'll y'all see this! Cheers!ReplyDelete
