Meet Betty. Betty is my gnome, made by my very talented friend Carol, and Betty will be featuring in this blog from time to time. Carol has made lots of these gnomes, and they live all over the world in different places, but Betty has come to live with me. Betty is very shy, but wanted to be a little different from all the other gnomes. Betty wanted a flower on her hat. Luckily, Carol also made me a miniature flower shop for my birthday a couple of years ago, and so help was near at hand. Betty had to wait a little while for the shop to open, as the owner was quite busy, and then she had to order her flower, since it wasn't the usual fare for this particular shop. However, finally -Betty has her flower. It is pink, with a blue centre. Betty is very pleased with her flower and feels it just makes enough of a statement so that other gnomes will know that she is a little bit out of the ordinary. Because Betty is a GIRL. In the gnome world, girls are quite rare. Betty is also an artiste.....but that's a story for another day.
In the meantime, Betty is all set to hit the town with her new flower and her new confidence - although I am slightly concerned about the Nitelink ticket....I think I better put a key under the mat.
Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!
