Week to weekend~

I have a terrible addiction to blue.
Blues of every color.

So when my sister gave me the idea to paint the chairs  I was trying to sell in her
 yard sale...I knew the color.

I took them back home, (kicking myself for even trying to sell them in the first place. I had forgotten you could take old stuff and make it new:)
~Remember the desk she re-did for me?~
I took these....

....pulled out the blue....

...and turned them into something I would use in my home.

I can't wait to get my paint on the old dresser in my room.
(Is it wrong to want to paint everything?)

This weekend I am taking these:
and am off to  Calgary to run a 10mile race around a mountain trail.
I have never run 10 miles straight before.....maybe 9, but not 10.
I am really looking forward to it. If nothing else....I am always at home in the mountains:)
AND, I am going to be with the person who inspired me to start running in the first place.
See her blog  HERE.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend....

Dawn that chair looks amazing that color, I wish I could think out of the box a little more with decor.

Not sure how long 10 miles is as we run in kilometers...but am sure its long as a 5kilometer run is about 3.5 miles.

A 10 mile run! Wow. Good luck. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
