A few weeks ago I was perusing the garden aisles in Target and discovered the Sean Conway mushroom and gnome pot stakes.They were COMPLETELY adorable. Given that I only had $20 in my wallet and still had to buy lunch I only put two of the mushrooms in my cart and planned on coming back. Then my life got crazy busy and it was a few weeks before I got back to the store. I could not find a SINGLE gnome. So, I went to another store, and another and yet another. I sadly came home with only a handful of red mushrooms, but no gnome pot stakes.
Now I know that there are some strong opinions about gnomes. I happen to like gnomes. It may have a little something to do with the fact that I lived in Germany where the garden gnome reigns supreme or it may have something to with the sweet film “Amélie”.
Either way I still want to know who bought all the gnome pot stakes!? I imagine it was the same wicked girl who purchased all of the size 7 Cynthia Vincent gladiator wedges and proceeded to make a fortune by selling them on Ebay. Hmph!
I really needed those gnomes. If I had had those lucky guys gracing my house this would not have happened.
Warning: Be prepared to laugh and snort.
Come back on Wednesday for a giveaway and no, it’s not for a gnome.
