I saw my first Nettie's Gnome at the Barn Boutique in Springville, way back when it was held in a barn. Lets just say I was beyond charmed .... that day Dorthea went home with me. Dorthea is a charming little girl gnome who looks surprisingly like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.
Later when Nettie came into the antique store where I work, to buy antique gew gaws and jewelry to accessorize her gnomes and witches, I was lucky enough to meet her. Nettie Barnett exudes the charm and magic that she sews into her creations.
Despite the fact that I have acquired six of her wonderful gnomes and witches, I had not been to the magical place of their creation, until last weekend. Whoa, I was pleasantly amazed!! This cobbled walk leads to a magical cottage.
Over the foot bridge, including its toes, one finds a life size witch, at leisure on the porch, to greet you.
Inside, at least during The Witches' Ball event, one finds wonderful witches lounging everywhere. I took some pictures of favorites. Nettie's attention to detail is legendary.
I hope you all enjoyed the fun and whimsical witches. Witches not exactly your thing? She also has some cute little Halloween children.
And there goes our good friend and Treasures Antiques' customer Lisa with new witches for her own little witch family!!
I hope to be able to show you some of her charming gnomes during gnome season. If you love her witches and would like to contact Nettie you can click here .
