I used to think that garden gnomes were a little goofy. I didn't understand why anybody would buy one without it being some sort of joke. Pardon my error, friends!
When my sister sent a link to the One Hundred Dollars a Month blog, I immediately enjoyed it and began viewing it daily to see what Mavis was up to for the day. Soon after following her blog, I discovered that she's started a Send in the Gnomes Project to raise funds for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Per each gnome that she receives by August 1st (up to 10,000!!), she's going to donate $10.00. Creative fundraiser, and that's an amazing amount of money for one person to fund.
Well, as I've been looking around for a decent-priced gnome to send in, I've learned to love them. When I found this little guy on steep discount at Jo-Ann Fabrics, I HAD to buy one for Mavis...and myself! So here is my first Garden Gnome. I haven't named him yet. Not sure I will! Not sure if he's the first of many, or the first and last. All I know is that he makes me smile every time I see him.
