The "WG"s in my Life

I have had a wonderful surprise lately from another blogger on Blotanical. "Elly" incognito most times, spotted a little miracle in a tiny, green glitter, snow globe ... that she thought I would really enjoy . And boy howdy .... this little guy (pictured at the bottom of the post) is something else ! ...Too perfect to believe .. he came wrapped up like the " Princess and the Pea" story .. a bundle of , dare I say it ? .. joy !
She didn't want to send an anonymous stranger to me so she had the suggestion of "Gaston" for his name .. and it clicked .. I heard a deep throaty French Canadian accent from this flirty little wonder straight off the bat .. again too perfect !
Then I got it .. she thought Gaston was a relative of "nameless little "winged" gargoyle" who is sitting right below this text .. I thought she was thinking of WG from the Benchwarmers .. so the lightening bolt hit about the second name she thought of .. "Winthrop" .. who wouldn't like Winthrop as a name for a gargoyle ? ...
Now all four gargoyles are named ! .. 4th being "TG" Thinking Gargoyle of the Benchwarmers.
So here are the three almost dead look alikes .. other than size that is !

Winthrop Guard Gargoyle
WG Weather Gargoyle

Gaston "keeper of the lap top" Gargoyle !!

What a fabulous addition to your 'boyz in the hood'

He is a handsome devil...with a deep throaty French accent, too! What a lovely and thoughtful surprise.

How sweet! I've never seen a gargoyle in a snow globe, but it's absolutely perfect for you, Joy. I got three decorating books from a blogger last week. I hit the jackpot too, it seems! I love blogging friends. The nicest people you'd ever hope to meet.

You're right, Joy---Gaston is a dead ringer for Winthrop the guard gargoyle. Glad they all have names (if not wings) now!

You and your gargoyles and gnomes!!

Brenda .. that is so true ! 'ben" really surprised me with finding it and sending it to me .. she is just too sweet : ) .. I'm so happy to add to my collection and with such a nice way of it coming about !

Hey PG .. Thanks ! Gaston says Merci too : ) with a few flirty French phrases too ? LOL

Hey Crafty the 'boys in the hood have been muttering nonstop .. he is the talk of the Benchwarmers : )

Hi Nola .. I think you put it just right girl ! he is one of those characters that pinpoints me exactly ? LOL

Rose said...

Gaston looks like the perfect addition, Joy; maybe he's related to Winthrop and WG!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Rose .. I think he was a foundling that was lost from his "brothers" .. now Elly found him for me and that is perfect ! LOL .. he is a handsome devil isn't he ? haha

Charming, as gargoyles go. And everyone should have a "keeper of the laptop." He appears to fit right in.

Hello there Kate .. Yup ! I didn't know I needed a "keeper of the lap top" until Gaston arrived .. then it was just so natural that he became so ! wink wink ^..^
