Mary Makeover

The Blessed Mother certainly doesn't need a makeover, but my garden Mary did.  I've had her for years (she was a gift from Clay and the kids many, many Mother's Days ago) and she was looking pretty shabby from years in the rain, snow and sun.

Clay thought I could just re-paint her in the same colors, but I was afraid she would look creepy -- I'm not good with realistic faces, just cartoony ones.

So, I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and the good advice of my friends, Heather and Julia at Beautiful Chaos, and I think she turned out quite lovely -- like an alabaster carving.
