These garden ornaments could once stand alone but after breaking at the base, I was afraid Id have to get rid of them. But, no way!
With a drill and a cool looking log, these mushrooms would have a new base!
With some epoxy the mushrooms are glued in.

So while these ceramic ornaments are not junk in the rusty-dusty way, they were certainly headed to the trash after breaking. But a log, drill and epoxy saved them!
