so one of my favorite things to do is to buy old/ugly/poorly painted/unwanted ceramics and figurines from thrift shops and whatnot and give them a new coat of paint and a new lease on life! here's a horse i did....

That is totally awesome! The two sides being so different is a really interesting twist.
I can't believe no one else has commented on it.

No no, I think you heard the horse wrong. I'm pretty sure it said it wanted to come live with ME Smiley.

Great job on this!

Wow!  Grin This is amazing. Great colors and designs, especially the "deadness" of it. I like that the finish , since it's not shiny,it doesn't even remotely remind me of porcelain. Truly recycling at it's best... and even though I'm not usually as horse-crazy as befitting a female, I would certainly give it a new home, if it hadn't already confused two other people by yelling at them to come take it  Grin
