See this chicken? I bought it many years ago at an art fair. A really nice artist had made it and I thought of her every time I looked at it. It was nice and distressed-looking when I bought it; just what I liked. Over the years, while it enjoyed whatever it was picking out of my garden, it because more and more weathered and I loved that look. I had pulled it out and had it sitting over among some other things that I was moving; deciding maybe to put it in the vegetable garden instead of the flower garden. The next thing I knew, my hubby came in from the garage saying "you know that old chicken you had outside? i gave it a nice new coat of paint. Now all you have to do is to give him a nice yellow beak and a couple of eyes!"
I didn't have the heart to tell him. What could I say..."thank you dear."
