Did you know that garden gnomes originated in the late 1800s in Germany? Then, these charming outdoor decorations took off in popularity in the United States in the 1900s, especially after the popularity of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
. These small garden statues are thought to bring good luck and protection to your home and surroundings.
If you are looking for a magical addition to your perfectly manicured landscape, stop by the Home Sweet Gnome feature at the front entrance of this year’s Ohio Home + Remodeling show to marvel at the gnome collection created by local Columbus celebrities. We can’t promise good luck, but we do think they will bring a smile to your face when you glance at your springtime flowers and plants.
