Hello. My friend was throwing this out. It's quite big. It had solar powered lights on it but they had packed up. She said it is due for the tip. I said I would have it and tart it up a bit. I gave it a good scrub and removed the wiring for the lights, and the plastic gossamer wings.
I took the gems off, some of them were missing and they were faded. I did think I would paint them with nail varnish but that was going to be a tedious job and I didn't have enough of them, or the right coloured nail varnish.
I cut 34 small pieces of vinyl from my stash, to stick on in their place.
I had some cans of spray paint from a house clearance. So now it is silver.
Then I cut some bigger pieces of red vinyl for the wings, using the old pieces as a pattern.
So there it is newly refurbished. Now I have to decide where to put it.
Three parcels are in the post for Debi, Patty, and Sandra, winners of the guess how many dogs competition. Look out for them ladies. Open carefully, don't stab the contents.
Don't need to go for a walk tonight, I did a litter pick this afternoon. The sun is still shining, I will go outside and water up.
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
