In 2014, Hallmark launched it’s first gnome home keepsake entitled “A Home for a Gnome” by Hallmark Keepsake Artist Tammy Haddix and while I wasn’t sure if this would indeed become part of a series, I searched again this past year 2015 while I was at my local Hallmark purchasing holiday greeting card sets. Lo and behold, there it was! I have a soft spot for the elementals so here are the two I have collected so far with a special Hallmark sneak peek for you (time to get excited!)…
2014 A Home for a Gnome
2015 Home Sweet Gnome

My faery fanaticism began with a book recommendation from my friend, Sylvia. She suggested none-other-than Signe Pike’s amazing book, Faery Tale. Following this was Grasslands Road’s fairy homes set, fairy-themed garden decorations, and other great books by Brian Froud. I will admit several years ago I fell in love with Cicely Mary Barker’s Fairyopolis and How to Find Flower Fairies, which I discovered accidentally during a search on an unrelated topic. Even as an adult I love pop-up books! This year I received a beautiful fairy & flower bird feeder/bath for my birthday from my mother-in-law. I unwrapped it immediately upon its arrival on my doorstep, quickly assembled it, and placed it straightaway in my perennial garden. Every morning I see it from my bedroom window and I imagine my garden faeries are pleased with it too.
