I found this wonderful book about gnomes at the library.

Too bad there aren't any gnomes in Florida.


  1. Oh, I'm sure there are gnomes in Florida. They're chillin' somewhere near the alligators. Hey, I'm coming your way soon. We'll be in Palm Coast the 18th-25th for my stepmom's 60th B-day extravaganza!

  2. Yeah, gators and gnomes probably get on pretty well! I hope you have a fantastic trip, but I have to warn you that it's EXTRA hot right now down here. I'll be headed your way in the fall, for the SE Women's Herbal Conference. Are you going?

  3. You know, Rien Poortveliet wrote another book, in the same style, called "Dutch Treat". It's sort of autobiographical. My grandparents were both artists, and they loved his work.

    I just discovered your blog today, through Small Measure (Ashley English's blog), and it turns out we might be neighbors! (I live in Gainesville.)

    I'm also in love with your conestoga wagon.

  4. Howdy neighbor!
    I will check out Dutch Treat, thanks for the tip.
