Unusual Custom Gnome Doll by Robin Thompson, Robin's Mini Furniture
Remember the gnomes? Besides the garden statues that are popular today, there was a book called "Gnomes" that was very popular. Nearly 40 years ago, there were gnome dolls, Christmas ornaments, cards, you name it. Dr. Tom Clark made them famous with his figurines. Here is a custom, artist made gnome woman that is a treasured doll of our web designer, Lisa Ambrose.
When I was a kid one of my favorite books was "Gnomes". I loved the beautiful watercolor illustrations as well as the way it was written.
A few months ago I happened to come across the book while cleaning house, and when I saw the picture of the nude lady gnome, I had a great idea! Why not ask Robin Thompson if she could carve me a lady gnome!
Well my dream has come true and I could not be happier!
Every time I look at her I smile.
