No horsing around here

I almost passed this up...I was dropping off some bags of clothes at Goodwill
and thought I should drop in for a quick glance

It looks like it was handmade for "Heidi"
a solid rocking horse, no batteries, no plastic,
just a wooden rocking horse!

Cute paint job - if it was still the 1980's!

Now this is what I had envisioned...when I first saw her~

I sanded off all the old paint
and then two cans of spray paint later...
She's a beautiful white rocking horse!

I made the tail out of yarn from Michael's

Used my Cricut Expression to cut out the flowers
and my granddaughters name

I'm so happy I didn't pass this one up!


  1. Oh my that turned out adorable! What a sweet look and I love that tail! You are so talented!

  2. Oh, that is charming. Absolutely delightful.

    Love it.


  3. That's so cute! Great job & thanks for dropping by my blog. :-)

  4. Just poppin in to say "Miss You"


  5. Hey, beautiful horse! I am just doing this over the weekend to a similar horse... aqua spray paint, white yarn tail, leaving the mane alone. Great minds!
