I really don’t see the point of having garden gnomes but for some reason, people find it as a need when it comes to decorating their front yards. From what I’ve read, garden gnomes started becoming a trend because of the local myth that gnomes help your garden at night. This little mister started spreading across Germany, France, England and wherever gardening is a serious hobby. (Thank you, Wiki.)
Now, the thought of having a tiny dude with a long beard and sporting a red hat hanging out in my front garden is not particularly appealing to me, so imagine my delight when I saw these modern garden gnomes.
For the record, I wasn’t really planning on having a front lawn. I’m more of a backyard person. But these gnomes are just so damn cute!

Oh and for the record, I don’t think I can ever be a garden person. Something about kneeling on dirt is not so appealing to me. But that doesn’t mean these gnomes are not cuuuuute. :)
