Dirty old grandfather

So this dirty (and fuzzy!) old grandfather reached out and touched me in the thrift store!  After I recovered from the shock, I took a closer look and thought I saw something there….

Yeah, no wonder he ended up in the thrift store – you can’t keep a dirty old man like this around the house for long.  The material behind the brass clock face looks like…copper, maybe?  Or tooled leather?  WRONG.  It’s some kind of weird, probably carcinogenic plastic that was melding with the board behind it.  Shoulda worn my hazmat suit while ripping it off, but I’m impatient a daredevil!

Following the required quarantine in Craft Purgatory, I put on my psychologist hat and decided to reform him into a fresh, modern metrosexual!!!  I cleaned him up, gave him a new suit, and will soon send him on his way via etsy or Craigslist.

Here’s a closer look at his clean new face!

That’s a Mod Podged fat quarter up in there.  Seriously, is there anything Mod Podge CAN’T do?

Hope you enjoyed this heartwarming story of reforming a wayward grandfather into a productive (and punctual!) member of society.  See you soon!
