    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm voting for gnirrels. Ok, gnomes. But squirrels are pretty cute, too

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love gnomes and mushrooms! they'd be perfect for wall hangings or possibly a child's quilt! hmmm creative juices flowing again!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. My husband and daughter tortured me with plastic garden gnome that I would find staring at me through the window or in bed with me when I woke up. I forced myself to learn to like gnomes and have fallen in love with them. 99% of them are adorable, yet there are still 1% that still scare me :0) Silly , I know.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Gnomes! Who doesn't love gnomes! Happy Day to all :)

    ReplyDelete
