The Adventures of Gnorbert the Gnome with the Red Heart Family

We love our Red Heart gnome, Gnorbert. It’s been fun to take him places and spread our Red Heart love with others.  Like all of us, we need a vacation periodically to recharge and so does Gnorbert.  He’s been so busy on his adventures with the Red Heart family over the past few months; he’s taking a short vacation at my house, re-energizing and relaxing in my garden.   Continue reading “The Adventures of Gnorbert the Gnome with the Red Heart Family”
