Launching soon!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad to visit with you today.  It will not be long until my website launches. I can't wait. There are a few Gnomes available.  Do you know the history of where gnomes came about?

Garden statuary has been common in Europe at least since the Renaissance. Philip Griebel from Germany made terracotta animals as decorations, and produced gnomes based on local myths about the gnomes' willingness to help in the garden at night.  The garden gnome quickly spread across Germany and into France and England, and wherever gardening was a serious hobby.  

Garden gnomes are typically males, often bearded, usually wear red hats and often have pipes. They are made in various poses and shown pursuing various pastimes, such as fishing or napping. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
