meet clover!

 So this is clover, I eyed him as we were passing by a garage sale this summer in georgia and I had to have him. I, unfortunately, was not prepared for garage sales that day. I had $3 in my pocket and the hubby had $2, he told me if I could get him for $5 then he was mine.

welcome to the family clover!
I did however have to give clover a major make-over before he could reside in miss A's nursery.
By major, I mean it took me hours and hours.
that mane and tail were nasty
the wood was not quite hat I was going for

here is clover, stripped down and ready to be made over!

after sanding and sanding
and 5 coats of white paint (yes I DID use primer as well)
and a trip across the country,
and finding the yarn for a new mane and tail
here is the new and improved Clover
