Gnomes, known as nisse, tomte or tomtenisse (depending on which Scandinavian country you’re referencing) are mythological creatures from Nordic Folklore and today are typically associated with the winter solstice and Christmas season. They’re small creatures (no taller than 35 inches), have a long white beard, and wear a conical or knit cap.
I can’t get enough of them. Gnome doorstop, gnome shelf sitters, small gnomes, large gnomes, gnome ornaments. My shop list goes on.
And while she’s not a gnome, I have puzzles of Anja the little Norwegian girl who is as cute as the gnomes.
Fill your home this season with these sweet little magical creatures. Mention this blog post and get 20% off your gnome purchase! Happy start to the holidays!!
