Repost From Paris: Gnomes Caged

This post is one of my favorites. I love the area where all of the garden supply stores are. Original post was shown here.

OK, so I love gnomes.

I only keep one in the house, since my fear of becoming That Crazy Gnome Woman who the kids fear on Halloween is always quite high.

It is unclear to me what these gnomes did to deserve being caged.

Could be the creepy one with the lantern was peeping into people’s windows at night.

Or, maybe it’s the half-nude who was pulled inside for drunk and disorderly behavior.

Whatever happened, I may need to go spring them.

That day, Isabella and I enjoyed a plate of escargot. Two years later, she ordered escargot and ate the whole dish. It's a winning taste.
