WOYWW?


How are you on this blue skied crisp and wintry afternoon? Me? Why thank you for asking, I'm flipping freezing.

So on my desk today -
Well the pile of pressies at the end has grown... but still not wrapped. Those green bags beside my keyboard hold beads and charms which postie delivered this morning. I shall be playing with those later, I can't show you the end results until after the big C day. But I will say... there are chess pieces. And apples. And wolves. And a crystal heart or two. Hmm.

And I don't know if you can see on top of my PC tower in my WOYWW easel - look what arrived this morning...
My gorgeous ATC from Donna's 50 followers collection. Isn't it stunning? And I can say without any bias - her best one so far. It really has to be seen to be believed, I just keep looking at it - I'm keeping her in my easel till I can get a frame. Thank you Donna - I love her to bits. Check out the 50 ATC's gallery here.

If you'd like to play along and flaunt your play space then get thee to Julia's and link up so we can all find you. I hope to do a better rounds this week, had a combination of sick kiddlewinks last week plus PC that is slowly but surely grinding to a halt. OH is threatening to put off the new tower purchase until after Christmas so that it counts as having it on the day or after... NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thanks as always for dropping by :)

  2. remind your significant other that VAT is increasing to 20% so the purchase better not be left to late - I mean imagine if you got snowed in after C day until new year (arrrghhhhh the horror!).

  29. For a moment I thought that bottle of glue? on your desk was a can of whipped cream and I was going to say that you are my hero. Every good woman should keep a can of whipped cream on her desk. :-) Also-- thanks for putting my giveaway in the side bar!!
