Gnome Repair is Finished

Here is what they looked like, I finished painting after the Gnome repair of the older one. This is before clear coat spray which I should be able to apply tomorrow. FUN!!!

Sometimes people believe I should not get such a kick out of painting and recycling a broken item. I grew up in a generation that did not throw things away that were still useable. We took the time to fix them, and what is funny is that the ability to repair something often carries a real good feeling of accomplishment when you are done. Almost endearing the object to you more because it becomes a little bit part of you.
