Plotting Revenge

My favorite character gnome moved into the garden this summer with his mushrooms.
He is so heavy though. He is made of cement and weighs over 200 pounds....we decided not to bring him into the garage for the winter.
In January I posted this image of him. I get a little nervous seeing him this covered up with snow. I can't get to him to clear him off. The gate is fixed in place with piles of snow too.

But today I am super worried. I think he is plotting his revenge now for sure.
Sorry Gnomey!!!!

I am inside again now enjoying my second hot cup of coffee. I hope you have time to enjoy me great beading blog links!
