Monday Morning Mirth

In what appears to be the continuance of their whimsical ad campaigns, the Burberry Store on Michigan Ave. is showing a huge collection of foot high figurines mixed with fashion.

Yes, my friends, mixed in with the skinny mannies, are these precious little men.

did you know, “most Gnomes are 7 times
stronger than a man & can run
at speeds of 35 miles per hour”?
Hey, that’s faster than the #66!

Burberry is celebrating the 100th Anniversary in Britain of the GARDEN GNOME!

a little gnome with cool bucket!

And that’s Good Gnews! Little people and animals have decorated the gardens of millions of happy people since time began!

How do I know they’re happy? You just can’t garden and be sad!

    These photos are great!

    P.S. There’s a “Gnome Liberation Front” here that “frees” gnomes by nabbing them from people’s houses.

    I have fond memories of reading the Gnome book at my Nana’s house when I was a little kid. I especially remember the naked anatomical drawings for some (very frightening) reason.

    Gosh, for a minute I thought that one fellow was showing off *your* Bucket-O-Chic!
