How I changed my guy.

How many times have you met someone and you know instantly what they need and that you can fix them.

He was a stallion for sure, a strong guy with great potential.

The minute my eyes met his, I knew he was mine.

This summer, I passed up a lamp with a similar guy.  I’ve regretted it every day.

I surrounded him with freshness.  Ivy, my gold W, he feels right at home.

All situated below a painting of a pasture.

And fresh grain (split peas) for my filler.

Here’s where he started:

And here’s where he ended, that’s much better!  One thing that I learned the hard way, these are the only kinda guys that I can change.  I’m ok with that :)

    LOL! Definitely easier (and better!) to only try and change those kind of guys! He looks fantastic though and I think you have had quite a positive influence on him. :-)

    A little like that “old spice guy” commercial eh?! I actually just worked on spraying 5 or 6 of little critters this week. It’s rather addicting! I love the stallion though.

    Isn’t it great we can change these kinds of guys? It doesn’t work so well on the other kind – you pretty much have to find them in good shape and love them the way you find them. :)

    Anything that involves a horse I love, it turned out great. I have to say I love love the split peas as filler, awesome idea. I love a pop of green here and there and I can’t wait to use that. Thanks for the great idea!!

    Did you have to do any preparation in spray painting your ceramic horse and what kind of paint did you use?
    Thank you,
