Remember This Little Guy?


My Nordic gnome objected very strenuously to being put away until next December. He wanted to remain out and about, so I had to find a new household job for him to perform, in order to prevent him from simply running amok making mischief. Wrangling Christmas cards is a seasonal task only.

Therefore, he is now the Permanent Official Guardian of The Big Basket of Cushions in the living room and has settled into his new responsibilities quite well.


And he is no longer nameless. Because of his rather magnificent beard, he has proudly taken the moniker of: 

Fearsome the Fierce! 

He chose this name because he is a great admirer of the blog Fearsome Beard and checks out the featured "Beard of the Day" regularly, if you know what I mean.

Hello Debra, Do they also scrub floors? Maybe I need a Nordic gnome for myself!

I hope you are feeding little Fearsome oatmeal with butter, or he might get grumpy.

Who wouldn't want the job of guardian of the cushions? But if he gets out of line again, HRH may need to have a word with him. That should set him straight.

Congratulations on your new job, Mr. Fierce! I hope Debra's paying you a living wage and adhering to all provincial Labour Laws, or at least minimum wage plus room & board, LOL!

How wonderful,

Val Ewing said...

Awesome! I have 3 Gnomes that like to hang around. I often find them in my woods doing things. What a perfect place for him and the beard is magnificent.
Oh ... I love that pillow with the eyes!

Martha said...

Being a guardian of the cushions is an important job!

Glad he is finally out of the cupboard for good.

Bob said...

I think guarding The Big Basket of Cushions is the most important position!

who DOESN'T love fearsome beard! guard those cushions well!

Tasker Dunham said...

He needs to be careful around that cushion with the eyes. It looks a bit untrustworthy.

Martha said...

I love the name and I think he will be excellent at his job. I think I'll join in the fun of checking out "the beard of the day" too!

Fearsome Beard said...

Fabulously Fearsome The Fierce!
Honored to share in his Beardom I am.

Now I kind of feel bad about shoving my Christmas elf back into the box.

Guillaume said...

great to have a gnome in the house. Love these Nordic gnomes.

Boud said...

Now there's a gnome to be reckoned with.

Rain said...

What a great name! And he'll do well guarding those cushions! :)

bobbie said...

And I'm betting you will smile every single time you see him!
Love the name ~

Miss Kim said...

He looks right at home there! <3

Mike said...

I guard cushions as often as I can.

Joanne Noragon said...

Fearsome could hold his own in Beard of the Day.

Fearsome the Fierce will likely be softened in his new cushy home.

Leanna said...

The guardian of the cushions. But he's so cute!!

Kirk said...

I don't particularly associate gnomes with Christmas. I think it's fine to have him out all year round.

roughterrain crane said...

He got a good and awful name. Infections will not come near to your house.

Moving with Mitchell said...

It would be sad to hide him away all year. He looks fearsome.

Linda said...

A perfect job for this handsome little fella. I think it should be a job for humans too, guardian of cushions. The blog you refer to is very original, and I totally get why Mr. the Fierce is an admirer. :) Hugs!

RO said...

Such a fun little guy to have around year around! Hugs, RO

pam nash said...

Gnomes must have a job - yes. Having him responsible for the cushion basket is good. I have an old garden gnome that needed some repair so I brought him in. Currently he is watching over the bulbs growing in the kitchen window!

The Liberty Belle said...

I do hope that Fearsome the Fierce will take his new duties seriously and live up to the expectations that have been placed on him. Have a great week! :)

Suz said...

I LOVE his name and If I visit, I will ask kindly before removing a cushion. :)

Magaly Guerrero said...

None shall harm a cushions, as long as that formidable nose is watching!

This N That said...

He looks happy...unlike my tribe that have been packed away til next year...Hope you are having a good weekend..

Magic Love Crow said...

This is so cute! He is so cute! Love the name!! He will do his job proudly, protecting the big basket of cushions! Love your cat cushion Deb! Big Hugs!

Ur-spo said...

However, i will disagree that is no gnome but a Tomte

JACKIESUE said...

Bill Lisleman said...

good name but you work his nose into the name

Kokopelli said...

Hahahahaha, love his new name and his new job! Perfect!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Love the name!!!
And he deserves to be out and about, no?

XOXO

e said...

What a good idea! And, a perfect job for the perfectly named gnome. His beard is magnificent. I'm sure he'll do a damned fine job.

Brian Joseph said...

I really love Fearsome the Fierce! I do no blame him for not wanting to be put away until Christmas.

I also would have him out all year round.

LL Cool Joe said...

He's a Gonk! :D

The Captain said...

Love him. We have one of his relatives but sadly he had to go away with the festive decorations.

Fundy Blue said...

Looks like Fearsome the Fierce has settled into a cushy job very well!
