Two little gnomes...

Two little gnomes are visiting here....

They are a little difficult to photograph since they are:

1. scampering about the house visiting with other dolls...

2. are about 4 or 5 inches tall and fuzzy around the edges to begin with...

3. are more interested in mushrooms and acorns than photo ops!

I made them like miniature Waldorf dolls and they are wired to pose. They are my first attempts at making a tiny Waldorf style doll and I hope there will be more to follow. They are a gift for a friend. They must travel together to her house because they are brother and sister. (Couldn't you tell? ) They didn't tell me their names yet...I think they are going to reveal them when they reach their new home.

The heat wave has abated and the weather is like it used to be years ago in late August. It has rained a bit and it's looking a lot greener outdoors!

I am off with a friend to today to celebrate my birthday (once again!). We have been doing this for about twenty five years--maybe more. We celebrate hers in March. Gee..we must be getting old by now!

As always,

enjoy the day!
