Do Gnomes have more than one life?

I love cute little Gnomes in the yard, and our do have multiple lives. We have two Gnomes outside that have had a few rough winters. Both have broken parts that needed fixing, were faded and badly in need of cleaning. They didn’t actually look so bad to me till after Pete had fixed the broken parts and they were standing next to the “new” hunter on the kitchen counter. This new “hunter Gnome” is presented here especially for my brother and sister in Albuquerque. Rocky do you like him? He is at our front door. Leona should I send you guys one? Hmmmm?

You can tell that the bigger one is really faded when you look at them together. He had to have his right foot glued back on and the rock underneath it glued too. See how extreme the fading is…

I wasn’t quite sure how to go about painting them but got out the acrylic paints and went to work and have thoroughly enjoyed doing it this afternoon. Now I need to rest my broken collarbone.
