My husband says I’m officially grounded from buying any more gnomes, lol…so it’s a good thing I got this set before grounding. Though, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to stop – they will continue to just pop up out of nowhere. But honey, I’ve had these – I bought them last year, wink wink. I don’t know why I didn’t notice that this set lights up – so I was very pleasantly surprised. When on, these create a soft light that makes their beard glow. They put off more light than you would think and would make a very cute nightlight. This is the first set I’ve come across that lights up like this, how exciting!
