I made a friend for the gnome.

 This is my second son, Matthew.

I hope the New Year finds you in your best and pleasing places.


  1. Love the gnome and mushroom. So many people are sick here, I'm not hearing about many parties right now. I'm glad you were all able to celebrate. You have some handsome boys. :-)

    Happy New Year!
    Blessings and love,

  2. That's a great gnomey duo!
    I love seeing all your blooms. I was just watching the Rose Parade and longing for spring. If we don't get any snow I have no use for the winter.

  3. That mushroom is too cute! Perfect for the gnome!
