trend alert: wintry white gnomes

center image, others lakbdesign

have you noticed the continuation of that early winter trend, crisp white, stylized porcelain figural things?  they're everywhere, but i especially like the newest additions, these gorgeous garden gnomes.

the first of the photos features a tall ceramic gnome from my bricks and mortar shop ... the second depicts west elm's new mod gnomes, and the third shows urban outfitters sweet gnome (and owl!) lights ... nice.

i'm not sure how long this trend will last, but i do love it. 
possibly this dates back to my childhood love of Big Ears, Noddy's gnome-y sidekick.

have a happy sunday!

  1. I just saw a little blue garden gnome at Goodwill this morning and thought of you!

    Have you seen this book? My aunt had one when I was a child, and my sisters and I would spend hours poring over it.

    And I'm sure you already know this, but Touchstone has a new animated movie coming out called Gnomeo and Juliet!
