Happy Monday! Did everyone have a lovely weekend? Our Saturday was mostly spent working, with one of the things we worked being the desk we found for Fisher's room. It's been such a long time since I have refinished a piece of furniture I forgot how labor intensive it is and how many steps there are: sanding, scrapping, stripping, sanding again . . . And I have an even deeper appreciation for all the amazing projects that Nina of Number 40, not only takes on, but finishes! (You can see a couple of them here and here.) We are finally almost done, one more coat of paint to go. Woo hoo.
Sunday we went downtown to Saturday market which obviously is also on Sundays. It was a beautiful day as it has been almost everyday this summer (miracles do happen!). I hadn't been to Saturday market for a long time but I have to say it was much the same as the last time I went, which is also much the same as it was when I spent every weekend down there as a teenager. It's a great place to go for handcrafted goodies and especially good for people watching. After walking around, watching and listening to street performers and getting a bite to eat, we cooled off in one of Portland's many fountains which besides petting all the dogs we passed was the highlight for M+L. Overall it was a nice balanced weekend of getting some things done, getting out and about and relaxing. How was yours?
