Only in Portland, Oregon........

Only in Portland would you be sitting in the middle of a bridge, on a lawn (yes, lawn), having a brunch picnic, when two human flowers just show up and join you......
Only in Portland. It made me smile. Just thought I would share.
See, I do get out of my workroom occasionally! Speaking of my workroom, I have it nearly complete. I just need to get my paints organized by color on the shelving and my various small tools put in order. I should have the portico coloration done by this evening and the support beams added and aged. It took me a half hour yesterday to find my Super Glue Gel so I am still not quite as organized as I need to be but I am getting there.

Garth Manor seems right at home. I set up a six foot table so I have enough room to add and work on the landscaping base. Table still has clutter that needs to find a home.

Fortunately the parlor has two doors. One that leads to the front room( shown here) and entry, and the other that leads to the hallway and stairs. I am going to block the front entry to make room for this other table for side projects of a smaller nature. I need to start on my commercial pieces soon.
This room is so nice. Just has a very warm feel to it. The Manor will enjoy it's new home.
Have a great day!


  1. That will be such a great space, with so much natural light. It can be tedious to set up, but once you get there it'll be well worth it. Enjoy!

  2. Human flowers! How fun is that?
    I sympathize with you. I am moving my studio into another space. Half of everything is still in my house while the rest is in the new location. ARRRRRRG! LOL

  3. Hello Michi,
    In Montreal I think you get a fine for brunching on a bridge!
    I'm glad you're having good weather. You look like you're having a great time, but I don't trust no walking talkin flowers!
    The new workroom is beautiful and is so charming. I can only imagine how great it must be to work in there! The Manor looks wonderful in there as well. It works so well with the room, but yet still stands out and makes a great statement. I hope you get everything organized soon so I can see more. Happy weekend!
    Big hug,

    1. The city has a "Bridge Fest" every year and they close off one of our historic bridges, lay down sod lawn over the concrete, and residents can bring a picnic and listen to live music while brunching on the bridge! It's really cool and we have done it the last couple of years.
