all about good gnomes
Melisa Nielsen, of Waldorf Essentials, says of the game -
“What a joy it was to watch my children get into this game & find new, fun & silly ways to gift each other, just after one round. They enjoyed being able to give things like hugs & even found it fun to do another's chore for them - because it was part of the game.
As a mom, I loved that this game can be easily completed in 30 minutes, making me much more apt to stop what I am doing & enjoy it with them. I also enjoyed that, even though my children are five years apart, they both could share favorite stories about these characters.”

Look what Pebble Gnome has brought us!
Here is a special little bag of quartz crystal points... pieces that must have broken off of those crystals Pebble polishes every night.
Pebble's offering is a small (3 x 4") all natural burlap bag, 3 or more crystal points (totaling from 20 - 40 grams) & a tiny 15 page book that he wrote. Its about how he gardens & cares for the crystals. And he tells how recently the gnomes in Limindoor discovered that the pieces of crystal were Wishing Crystals. He even suggests how to go about wishing on them.
Pebble also asked to WARN you that these little crystal treasures should be NOWHERE NEAR VERY YOUNG children. The crystals are small and a bit sharp! It would make Pebble and Ms. Sigi very sad if little ones were to play with these.
Wouldn't this make a lovely gift for a slightly older child though? Maybe Pebble could help the Tooth Fairy!
The crystals would also look lovely on the Nature Table.
What else can you think to do with them?
