It is garden week here at The Handmade Experiment! Just in case you haven’t been following, make sure to check out Monday’s Must Have Garden Gear post for handmade items and tutorials. And don’t miss yesterday’s Botanical Creations – Artist Interview and Jewelry Giveaway post where we got to see Kathryn Sherwood’s gorgeous faerie and children’s gardens. Enchanting!
I had her gardens in mind as I scoured Etsy.com for just the right piece of inspiration to share on this Inspiration Wednesday. Looking high and low, imagine my surprise when suddenly I stumbled over one of these little guys. Next thing I knew they were popping out at me from all over the place. They may seem similar, but each one is as unique as they are recognizable. True icons! How was I to choose the best one?!?
After much hmmming and haawing, I’ve given up. So I’m calling on you, helpful reader, to choose the Gnumber 1 Gnome. The winner will get the joy of being Gnumber 1 and the rest will have to be happy just being gnominated. Just leave a comment telling me who your favorite is and on Friday, I’ll tally the votes and announce a winner. Make sure to check out the artist’s shops to see more great handmade items. Thanks for voting!
