Sigh...don't you hate it when this happens? I was soooo disappointed that one of two new additions to my gingham dog and calico cat collection had suffered damage in mailing.
Of course, nothing broken ever goes back together the way it was, and there are always parts that can't be mended, or can't be found. (Hmmm, there's an allegory in there).
Allegories aside, my lame little gingham dog has already made a new friend (also a new addition, gotta love eBay). Later, I'll perform some cosmetic surgery by filling in the cracks on his leg with spackle, painting them to match with acrylic paint, and applying gloss finish to blend in with the glaze.
