A little gnome in my garden!

Beacause of my new passion for gardening, my dear friend Margherita gave me a gift from her holidays in France...

















...the little gnome was boxed with brush and colours...

















...I've waited for 8 months...I'm not very clever with little brushes....and finally I painted him!!! He's so funny and a bit kitsch...and he will have a special place in my garden!

I won Rosemary's giveay some weeks ago...I received these lovely cake labels yesterday!

















Thank you Rosemary! I love them!!!
A great week end to you all!

I ♥ your new header! and the bags you have the herbs in is beautiful.

the gardvord is actually a german thing. Don`t know why they had 'the small people' to watch over theire garden. We use them too, and in England you find them everywhere. Cute :)))
