the tiny mother

stripes

Stumbled over these tiny gnomes (yes, Christmas decorations already...) at a department store the other day.

Yes they are really cute - even if this type of small clay gnomes with oversized hats have been around in Sweden for about 20 years now. And originally they were carefully handmade by crafters and artisans in small-scale productions. Quite the opposite of this...

But most of all they're the spitting image of my mother (apart from the size). Really. (But just like me she loathes having her picture taken so I don't have any as comparison. You have to take my word for it. And visualize.) A whole table filled with tiny Pia-mothers. And that made me laugh.

And a good laugh is always welcome. In any shape or size.

How does Mom feel about the comparison? I bet, since she is your mom, and looking at the little gnomes, she is quite the free spirit and enjoyed it.

Humm, perhaps they look like you as well! Case in point, I posted a new profile picture to my Facebook account and was told by my co-worker that at first she thought it was my mother! I'm trying to consider that a compliment.
