Color Coordination

I'm not much of an accessory person. I don't have a lot of cute belts, scarves, shoes and purses. I feel pretty good to put on the basics and get out the door. But I have a lot of respect for those who know how to complete an outfit with that special item that makes them sparkle.

Kristi submits:

Mortimer spent hours shopping to get just the right purple hat to match his new jaunty pants

and then pulls it all together with a magnificent Gnommy Choo man-purse.

Score (Kristi provided the list, my comments are in red)
  • The largest Gnome I have ever seen: dressed! our first dressed gnome, his jacket is divine: 4 points + 1 point
  • Purple man-purse: 1 point
  • Texas star on Ohio house (fancy-smacy flag painted one): 1 point
  • Horseshoe placed in proper position to keep luck from running out: 1 point
  • Rarely seen 25 ft turquoise Curly Viper OH never's a garden hose. (always stick with your bluff, you never know I may have an off day): 0 points

Subtotal: 8 points

Creativity Bonus

For a gnome dressed for a day out in the town: 4 points

Total: 12 points

Kristi, your assignment if you chose to accept it:

Find out if Mortimer changes his outfits. We all want to know.


  1. too bad the lights were on but gnomebody was home. Or how about gnomebody knows the troubles I've seen. Or I could just say cute gnome :)

  2. Ann, Mortimer does not think he is cute, he is pretty sure he is awesome.

  3. That life size gnome is creepier than the doll house!!!

  4. He's awesome; he's got the beat; he's a metro-gnome.

  5. He's going for that Miami Vice look.

  6. Tufa Girl, I agree and I would be nervous with a gnome dresser for a neighbor.

    ChrisJ, of course, he is exactly a metro-gnome he probably gets his back waxed.

    Lola Nova- I thought I recognized that outfit.

  7. Tampa Screen - You can get your own man-purse. Then you would be cool too.
