Thrift Thursday - a Gnome for our Home

Some days the thrift gods drop unexpected awesomeness in my path. Like this:

For $3.48! It's the kind of sweet deal that when you find it you hug it tight and make a beeline for the checkout before they have time to realize it should be more expensive. He's not your everyday stand-around gnome either, he's helpful! He's holding up a slice of tree trunk so we can use him as a table:

or stool:

And he does it all with a smile.

Welcome home happy gnome! We named him Mr. Awesome, Mossum for short.

I love the gnome! We have a family of gnomes who live in or kitchen. We just can't bring ourselves to ban them to the garden. Plus, the dogs will probably attack and/or pee on them.

That was supposed to be Jen/O'Boogie. Don't know what happened with the P.
