I love the paint job on your St. Francis! Lovey dubby Thumbs up

Molds? Concrete? Someone calling my name??? Rolling on the floor laughing I've been MIA doing research for my next "garden figures", this is so addicting! Rolling my eyes. I've got two projects in the initial stages right now and will have more info soon. "Gnot" to Gnomes, none here yet but you never know, there was a day when I didn't like gazing balls either - guess our tastes change with age. Hilarious! Received my newest object for the gardens yesterday, Rick's comment..."You've got more garden junk!" It's not "junk", it's garden whimsy! Big Grin
