Ruby Tuesday:Valentine Gnomes

It's Ruby Tuesday time again! Mary suggested last week we could begin posting red hearts for Valentine's Day. This gives me a good chance to post more of my gnome figurines I mentioned during macro week.
Why so many Valentine gnomes? You see I was my Mom and Dad's Valentine gift many years ago. When I started collecting the gnomes it was a natural idea for my children to give me a new gnome every year for my birthday. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Meet Barney, Hart, and Val
Looks like love makes Spock's hat fall off!! :)
Look closely. Can you guess what's up with these two?
Ah, isn't that sweet!

Lovely figurines for Valentine's Day!

Ralph said...

These gnomes have a look to make one smile, even if they aren't presenting ruby hearts to you. But the gnomes that are givers of hearts look just a bit more winsome. I like your guys!

And Happy Early Birthday.
(just in case I forget later)

They are darling! I do love gnomes -- I don't WANT them ... but I love to SEE them! I'm finding that to be true of sO many things in my beyond 50 life!

I've tried yesterday to post my comment, and I realize I failed.
I found them so funny, specially the two last.
But I was wondering, yesterday, if they were decoration for inside ?
They look so pretty. Hope you didn't let them outside. They would disappear without trace !
Happy Ruby Tuesday, Carletta.
