Oh, Gnome, You Didn't

Whoa, Gnellie! Did I really just design a gnome without a beard?

When the wind howls on a cold night, a gnome without a beard has to wrap up tight! Hands stuffed in pockets, scarf up to the eyeballs – I’ve been there! This medium-sized gnome is full of fun little details to bring a smile to your face even if no one can see it under the scarf.
