I found these sad looking little gnomes in the dollar bin at Target. They've been there for about a month...maybe longer.
Noone would buy them because they so sad (and ugly, too....)

Who wants a sad gnome?



But then yesterday, I noticed they were marked to 50 cents so I took them home and gave them a makeover.

Now they look like this:

Better?

I think so....and here is where they live for now...


The fairies don't mind...such hussies!


Gee, I wonder what my next YOE theme will be?

What a transformation! I'm sure they are much happier now, with their new makeovers and living in their new Gnome Home :-)

Oh, this is the cutest post - those sleezy fairies, really! (he, he, he)

How cute they look and you really spiffed them right up. I would have taken them home too...they're sweet!

Much better! Don't they know that gnomes just have to have some red and white on them?

Kerry said...

They look so happy now - all they needed was some TLC!!!
Oooh next months theme..... it's time to get excited:-)

Becky said...

Such a transformation!!! What sort of paint did you use? Or was it just a waving of the fairy wand and some pixie dust!

Haaaaaaa haaaaaaaaa, oh girl, no you di ent.

You must rent Amelie. It is a French movie subtitled in English. Not for little eyes thought. You will get a kick out of the gnome.

You're so funny! A gnome makeover. I thought they were cute originally but now they are definitely more festive.

They look great. Are they waiting to hook up with the fairies?

This was just the make over they needed. The red and white mushrooms make all the difference, they look much better. Maybe they'll even get a date with the fairies now.
