  1. Hi Sarah,
    Great list. Surprised me with “No bunny like you” (gnome with bunny ears, obviously) :)
    – I REALLY expected, ‘Gnome bunny like you’ or ‘Gnome bunny likes/loves you like I do.” ;)
    Thanks for all your creative ideas,

  2. Absolutely love these sayings! But I was looking for a birthday greeting, wondering if
    “Gnome another Birthday” sounds good? Also, I checked out your Pinterest page, Oh my, I’m hooked!! LOL Thanks again for sharing!

  3. I want to know where to find accessories for gnomes. Things they can hold like coffee cups, donuts or like garden tools, Easter basket and etc. Thanks for getting back with me. Love your gnomes. Have some of your patterns.

    1. Doris, Accessories can be made (from polymer clay, Dollar Tree finds) or purchased. I am not sure the size of your gnomes, however, most of the time 18″ doll accessories work for those which are between 12-18 inches. If you have smaller gnomes, you might try searching “mini/miniature” or “tiny” + the accessory you’re looking for. Etsy has some great finds.
