I Win Christmas - Part 2
Yes, it's a garden gnome.
Yes, it's an Iowa Hawkeyes garden gnome.
My sister got this from me for Christmas. It wasn't very tall, about 18 inches or so. I thought it would be heavy, but it was a resin material so it was fairly lightweight. The nearly hurricane-force winds Chicagoland had yesterday would have turned this into a weapon, launching it around the neighborhood, if I'd had one in my yard. I think, due to his diminutive stature, he's best off to the side of the deck or next to some potted flowers. He doesn't stand out very well.
My sister put him on the mantel above her fireplace. Perfect spot.
I warned her there was a box coming. I warned her it would probably make her laugh. He came sandwiched between two pieces of styrofoam so I wrapped the styrofoam and stuck him back in his box.
I think I need one.
