the week of the gnome....

Sure feels like the WEEK of the Gnome.... as you will see in the next day or 2... I even wrote this haiku called THIS AFTERNOON

 My chilly fingers
Have made a dozen silly
 Gnomes...and two pigs.

Speaking of pigs, I was dreaming and had ideas and awoke and put dreams into action....the mug below is the result.  It is not exactly what it needs to be...yet....and so I made a second version, which is.
But I get to keep this one :)

(mug by me...and me below, with Spike)

You place your critters in the neatest spots.

Spike looks like he wants some too. "Where's mine?"

I love that athletic piggy!

My cat just gave me the same look that Spike gave you, heheheh!

Maybe the handle needs to arch up higher and be thinner to give you more finger-room, like the cup on the table.

Shortstuff said...

Can't wait to see the gnomes.

YES, the handle is too small :) And I want the pig on top.

Lori Buff said...

Very cute. If anyone can make that pig placement work you can.
I love the pic with you and Spike.

Barbara Rogers said...

OINK! And of course Meow. Now what does a Gnome say?

Michèle Hastings said...

looks like you and Spike are having a stare-down.

I think you and the Missus must have the fanciest of feasts and the most fun while dining. Great mugs!
