My Project 3rd piece of the puzzle

Hi all,

today I worked very hard to get all the prep work done on my project...I am posting a picture to show you part of what I've done today!
2 coats of undercoat on this and the rest of the pieces!
 (Pieces... there are lots of) 
 I did ask for it when I decided to paint the inside as well.....boy that's hard work!!!
I think by now you've guessed, what my project is but the finishing has got me stumped!
I know what I want to do but tried it on an old stool and didn't like the look so it could be another week before it's finished!

If you have any suggestions...I would looove to hear them!

My project 2nd piece of the puzzle

Yesterday was my day off from my commitements (with elderly parents) so I spent the best part of the day working on my new project.
I am giving you a glimpse at the second piece. I think you will be able to work out what it is from this photo!

It wasn't a very good day for painting but I managed to get 2 coats of undercoat done!
It would've been easier for me to get my husband to do it (he is a painter) and it would probrably have been finished by now but it is my project and I want to enjoy every minute of it!
I can't wait to get this finished and see if it comes out as I picture it to!
I have tomorrow morning off so I will work on it some more.
Wish me luck!!!

New (from old) project!

Greetings dear blogsters!!!

I hope you have all had a super weekend!!!

I'm working on a new project which is probably going to take me around 2wks (could be more) of my spare time to complete.
I am giving you a sneak peek but if you want to know more, you need to come back in a couple of days when I'll be posting more clues, sorry!!!

Part one (below) has been completed!

I saw this gorgeous print at Ikea! It was exactly the sort of thing I was after.
This is glued to a piece of MDF (Particle Board). I liked it so much (the way it looked) that I was tempted to hang it up as a print.

Stay tuned for more!!!

Northern Lights/Adelaide/South Australia

Greetings my blogster friends!
At the moment in Adelaide/South Australia we have the fringe festival and the city is abuuuuuzzz.....with tourists.

 Friday night, we went to see the Northern Lights (a friend had asked me if I had seen them.....seen them? I didn't even know about them, so much for advertising) and as,  I always take my camera with me I thought I'd take some photos...but alas my battery was dead.....not to worry I'll use my mobile, all excited I get it out, go to take a photo and guess what?.....yep you guessed it, 'low battery' on Saturday off we went again and this time both camera and mobile were totally charged...I made suuuure of that!

I could not believe how many people were in the city! The traffic was at a crawl. It looked like a foreign country LOL. Here in Adelaide we can still (NORMALLY) move with ease in the city!

Anyway getting to the point, I wanted to share, with those of you who can't see them in person, these beautiful lit up buildings, keep in mind these are just your normal, old stone buildings.

As you will see in the photos, these buildings are lit up with different patterns and colours, they look so good, they look as though they have been painted that way...until they change the pattern, that is!  ( This occurs every 5minutes or so ).

These lights go on from 28th Feb-5th March,
 every night from 10pm-12am
If you would like to see MORE, there are another 4 more photos on the next page and some more on flickr, you can click 'read more' below, or click on my flickr link on the right, to go view the other different patterns.
I hope you enjoy!!!
