Notes from the Garage

Notes from the Garage

“For every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and ~ snap! ~ the job’s a game.” - Mary Poppins

I had a job to do this morning, which was to take the car in for an oil change and tire rotation. I opted to wait for the car in the waiting room and while the first half-hour was spent idly going through Instagram and Twitter, I soon grew tired and restless. That was when I began to notice all the interesting little novelties that surrounded me.

 The door to the waiting room.

Bits of whimsy could be found both inside and outside. The garage was chock full of treasures.

I could have spent hours studying and photographing all the sculptures and objects that decorated the building. When I arrived home I went on Murray Brothers website and discovered that most of the sculptures and art were created by Leslie Murray, wife of one of the owners. Thank you, Leslie, for turning a chore into a joy!
