I've always wanted a traditional garden gnome. With a pointy red hat and a blue coat and brass buttons and a fluffy white beard.
But I wouldn't keep him in my garden, I would take him travelling.
Or send him travelling with someone else, a la Amelie.

What would you call your garden gnome and where would you take him?
