Christmas project

I found this little beauty at a thrift shop for cheap. It is a bisque-fired ceramic carousel horse that has been painted hideously with glitter paint.
I am going to make it pretty again.
This horse is going to be a Christmas present, so I hid it away in the basement laundry room. I have been painting it while Alli and Ruby are at school and hiding it before they come home. That worked well for a few weeks until they went exploring in the dark, creepy laundry room.
They were so delighted to discover the horse! I sort of made up a story... like, "I think that belongs to the landlord. We better not mess with it." or something like that.
I hope they will forgive my fib when Christmas comes.
I will post another picture when the horse is done.
