Is diversifying the right word?

1960s/70s Porcelain Seagull and Wood Art Sculpture.
  • DIVERSIFY: enlarge or vary the range of products or the field of operation of (a business).”we’re confident that the new owners will grow and diversify the company globally”

Still Not Sure!

Although I do mostly Mid Century, I do have a small handful of antiques like these Wax Seal Stamps I picked up in Helsinki, Finland

Have A Gnome Day!

Sometimes it’s not about the pieces…

But the love and stories that come with them.

In almost perfect condition.

I ask and listen to the stories, and they are not lost on me.

The families that lived with these pieces. The love and laughter they have seen can be seen on the faces as they pass them on.

The sleep overs these two lovely rich wooded ones enjoyed.

These all came from one family. Mom was from Europe who had a penchant for Danish furniture. Dad worked for the military gone away at times. Maybe he picked them up on his deployments for his beloved. One daughter had the twin beds in her room, the other had the wicker & wood bed. How they stayed in perfect condition is beyond me when I think of my rough and tough childhood.

The music that played in the home, the dancing girls and watchful parents sitting in more Danish Modern chairs. The stories lay in the wood and hearts, cuddling them closely.

The conversations these two have heard. Gossip perhaps or the planning of a daughter’s birthday party or two.

I have the honor to be the one that is helping pass these lovelies on to new homes to make more memories. Message me for further info you may need.

Thank you for visiting MY GNOME LITTLE WORLD and please come again!

It all Started with a Large Ball of Twine.

And then Some Gray Yarn.

And Once the Sticks Got Involved…History Was Made.

I have a big wall that needed decor, so I set to making a big piece.

I knew macrame was going to be part of it, but not exactly sure how.

I attached the twine and yarn and let it all sink in.

Then I went for it, but I got stuck on what to do after the first row of Macrame.

It sat like this for quite a while, but the rolled up yarn and twine at the bottom did give me an idea.  But before I could work on that part, I had to finish the other parts.

So I continued to make these large macrame knots and my sister described the look as “Lace”.

I kept going with the big square knots and the “lacey” look.  When I finished I added something a bit different.

Some Poofs made of Twine!
