Making progress on a work in progress

This is Yellow Owl:) It's part of a series of Owls that I've been working on, for a while now. The good news is that I'm making progress (slowly). The bad news is that I still have a lot to do...actually there is no bad news. I'm excited about this project, so it's all good.

Hello Sunshine!

I was just finishing up a run the other day when I spotted this sad looking chair that had been kicked to the curb:( I thought should I, should't I? Do I really need another project? where would I put it?... And then I was painting it:)
It was in pretty good shape - just needed a little glue and some paint. It looks lovely in Hannah's room.

Sun.Sept.7@ Artscape Youngplace

Last Sunday was a beautiful day and perfect for an outdoor community celebration.
Mosaicworks was, one of many participants, at 180 Shaw Street celebrating Artscape Youngplace's Shaw Street School's 100th anniversary.
We loved being a part of the many cool activities going on and enjoyed sharing our passion for mosaics with those who stopped by to make a mosaic apple and/or mini chalk board.
Being photographed with the bull dogs at the Wild Little Hearts photo booth was definitely a must.

Before and After Bathroom Alcove

For the last couple of days I've been working on a small makeover in our 'master' bathroom. This alcove was made a little more useful and a lot more exciting by adding an easy to make built in shelf + some white paint (Benjamin Moore's 'Cloud White'). White
After the before and after is finished there is always styling to be done. Styling, I love doing it but it's racked with decision making:) Which one works for you?

Crossing the finish line @ The DQM 2014

Yesterday was The Durham 1/4 Marathon (10.549km) + 1/8 Marathon (5.275km). A great run for a great cause! It was another family affair minus our Emma, who was out with a knee injury:(
Hannah crossed the finish line (1/8 Marathon) first in her age group:)
