Works in progress.....

Yes PROGRESS! *woot-woot* Project #1... I finally finished painting my wall to wall cabinet in my studio. Here is a sneak peek of what I've been working on. After painting the entire thing, I added wood trim to cover each area where two pieces came together. Here you can see where the last piece of trim will go. It was floor to ceiling bins, so to force myself to display things, I added vintage sheet music to the top area. I am working hard on giving my studio an cuter look for an open house of sorts being held next month. Better late than never on getting started! Isn't that sheet music divine? Its from the early 1900's. Project #2.... I've also been working on another Alice in Wonderland prop for this years Mad Hatter tea party--- being held this Saturday. In previous years I made props using foam core, this year I used a piece of plywood. Here it is with the first coat of every color...... This past Sunday while sailing... yard-sailing of course. I came across a couple who were moving and selling everything in their house and yard. I bought a fabulous wheel barrow for only $10--- and after drooling over their flagstone patio.... I asked if it was for sale. "Sure, $20 was the reply.".... SOLD! my new wheel barrow and I got to work. Kismet? You betcha! All of this pictured below, plus a truck load more! These are the small pieces, the bigger pieces are still on the truck ;-P I guess this is Project #3. Like I need another project...

Wow, your work is cut out for you. Hopefully you'll show the completed projects. Are you gonna' make a flagstone patio, and are you gonna' put some greenery like moss or thyme in between the stones???? I adore that look. Please make sure you don't overdo and "lift with your legs" not your back!

Hugs,
Meri
