i love gnomes. there is something sweet and wondrous about them. here is a very special gnome that i received the other day from my new friend, orit, courtesy of her beautiful waldorf-inspired etsy shop...

each morning when maya and i awake, he is here on our nightstand to greet us with his sweet and smiling face. with such a happy gleam, i find i cannot look at him without smiling myself! this is a very particular style of gnome that is typical to waldorf education, and i have a very special memory of a gnome just like him that my dear friend, christiane, showed to me long ago when naomi was in the waldorf kindergarten. orit says that 'legend tells that in the winter time we can see them, and if we behave nice to them...they can be our helpers in creating our crafts'. how magical is that? thank you, orit!
