The Sun is Back

UPDATE ------  UPDATE ------  Check this out.

On my Friday Fences post last week I wrote about the problems I was having with the Jim Shore yard art I purchased last spring.  To see the original post click here.  

Since then I have been able to get the address of the Jim Shore Headquarters and I wrote them a letter.  I will keep you posted on any results.

You will recognize this as the Jim Shore Sun photograph from the previous post.

Well,  the Old Salt and I have been busy.  

The Old Salt finally found the right adhesive and  our sun is once again in one piece.  We sat down together and repainted it, gave it a coat of clear varnish and rehung it in a shadier spot on the bare part of the fence.  Only time will tell if the products we used will wear any better then those used by the company that manufactured this item.  But, for now I have a bright new sun to enjoy on my back fence.


  1. Your sun looks lovely! You did a great job of repairing it - will be interested to know if the paints work better! Maybe you can share that info with the company if it does!

  2. That's great team work!!!


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
