The Madonna gets a Makeover part 1

Time for our Madonna to get a make over. This Concrete Maddona Statue is over 25 years old. She has been standing guard in our yards for a long time. It has withstood many storms through those years.
She’s been rained on, pelted with hail and covered with snow. This will be her 3rd time being repainted.
She also was blown over and had her head knocked off when she hit the rock she was standing in front of. She’s not protected by a bathtub like her Sisters.
This is part one of three steps to restore her.
First step is to remove all loose paint and sand. I won’t be using any chemicals on her, just a sanding.
I’m thinking of moving away from the typical colors that her sisters and her are painted. Stay tuned for part 2.

Happy anniversary!!!

This week marks the one year anniversary that Izzy adopted me.
She’s trained me very well. She let’s  me enjoy the Gloucester Dog Park almost everyday.
You never know what you can expect when a dog adopts you.
Hopefully she’s  happy with my progress.
Check out Cape Ann Animal aid’s website to see if a dog or cat loves you enough to
adopt you.
Happy Anniversary Izzy and to us!
