All about Gnomes and Tomtens


Gnomes, Tomtens and Elves are in abundance here at Blueberry Forest!  In Swedish folklore, Tomtens help to keep watch over their human families, although only children and animals can see them.  The Tomten and The Tomten and the Fox were among our favorite childhood books, and we still love them.  Our children never tire of these stories and the gorgeous illustrations of the Tomten traipsing through the snow in the moonlight.  Similarly, gnomes and elves 

Our Handfelted Gnomes are charming companions; our 3.5 in. and 4 in. felted gnomes are perfectly at home with our Cherry Wood Tree Branch Furniture and our Fairy Forest Lodge furniture.
