My iTOMTE Gnome collection has grown again!! I can’t even tell you how cute these little guys are in real life. The beards! The hats! The NOSES!!
In October I showed you my newest additions; plant stake, key chain and Christmas Tree decoration.
Now I’ve added a couple new additions. I have to admit the iTomte with metal legs quickly moved up to my favorite. He’s so stinkin’ CUTE!!
The standing gnome has a spring inside so he kinda just dances when touched. This guy is 17″ tall from the bottom of his little metal feet to the top of his ridiculously tall hat! These gnomes are individually handmade with lots of love! He stands with round big belly, supported by his long steel legs. He has a spring device in the body, once touched he dances. The light brown belly and white beard are made of fiber fur. His hat are crafted from red soft plush felt and a wire in his ridiculously tall hat in order to pose it for maximum whimsy!
The 12″ Table Decoration is cute as well, although I have to admit I do miss the little cloth button nose. This particular gnome has the same gnome body and hat crafted from red soft felt but the nose is made with resin. Now, half the family likes it best because it looks so real. So, I guess I have gnome for everyone’s tastes. The long light brown beard is made of fiber fur and a wire in his ridiculously tall hat in order to pose it for maximum whimsy! He stands on his own by weighted bottom.
These are hand crafted Gnomes also known as Tomte or Nisse. Since these are shy little Gnomes not many people know about them. Living in the woods of Smaland they are said to be lucky! That’s according to Scandinavian Folklore. The Tomte guard the home, farms and children; especially at night.
I love my collection of iTOMTE Gnomes so much, they stay out year around. So CUTE!!! I can’t wait to station my little lucky gnomes throughout the new house! SO CUTE!!!
