Mom loves these little figurines. There are boys fishing, kids cuddling, and animals lounging throughout the yard. She certainly doesn't need more. Yet, my mother can't avoid buying them. I think part of the appeal is that she has turned this yard decoration into a craft project. We all know how therapeutic it feels to paint something pretty. Many people like the "stone" appearance. My mother prefers to add color. The results compliment the varied hues throughout the garden. If you've had one of these around for years, consider giving it new life with paint. You may need to touch up the colors eventually. Perform a makeover every few years. Give your girl a new hair color and a brighter dress. If you see a woman in the lawn section of the store with a cart full of these, she is probably my mother.
