Keep 'em Small and Keep Them Off the Grass











































When entertaining -- operative word "entertaining" -- these little fellows would be hilarious lined-up in parade formation blazing down the center of the table at an outdoor dinner party.

They're larger relatives are not funny in packs hanging out in the garden. For those who find nains (male) or naines (female) de jardin amusing, get in touch with me immediately. We need to have a chat.

As you know, if one wishes to live a beautiful life one must be prepared to make intelligent, discerning, sometimes difficult decisions. This one is simple: Don't.

The instant someone sees a nain  in your garden, it's over.  There's no turning back. Your reputation has been sullied for life. You might as well take the wheels off your car, set it up on cinder blocks and arrange your old appliances as modern sculptures and flower "boxes" in your front yard.

I have to say, these little guys are pretty darn funny... Great housewarming / party host gift for someone with a good sense of humor...

Oh my gosh, so funny! I agree, the big ones are just strange and bad all the way around.

P.S. I'm glad you enjoyed the salad at Laduree!

I love these nains. I hope they burn a long time because they're pretty expensive, something like 37 Euros.
