Hop around the crafty desks of the world, for Wednesday fun, over at Julia's stamping -ground blog. Here's mine .... but will the others be tidy or messy?.... you'll have to take a snoop to find out!
My desk will remain tidy and inactive for best part of a week whilst I go to Germany to see family. Last report it was Brrrrrr -16C out there so I've packed my thermals. Don't worry that I'm leaving DH home, post op, as he is doing fine and will be OK with a freezer full of good food, good neighbours and his sister to keep and eye on him.
Those sceptics out there who think I am posting the same pic and not really staying tidy just take note of my hyacinth growing week by week!
I wore these size 4, winkle picker toed, stiletto, satin shoes for my wedding in 1966. Yeah, I know, I know, I am REALLY THAT old! They are staying around my craft room as I've decided to alter them and then give one to each of my two my DDs. I now just need some thoughts and ideas, to help me on my way and I'm sure you can all help with inspiration. Any offers?
There's a picture, next to the lantern, at the back of the shoes, of an antique item I was privileged to win many years ago.
There is a little prize for guessing exactly what it is but if lots of you get it correctly I will draw for the winner.
It took ages last time when I had a wooden hat block as mystery item, so lets see if you can do better with this one.
I thought I had nothing creative to share today until the postie arrived with a big fat parcel. No clue to the sender, but as I unwrapped all the masses of bubble wrap and tissue, here is the surprise I discovered.
Doone (Donna) made this fantabulous, joyful, fairy for me at Christmas, lost it, found it, then forgot to bring it when she visited. Then our planned get together was deferred due to DH's operation so my fairy has been packed really well and trusted to the Royal Mail and arrived safe and well to thrill and surprise me.
I cannot remember the name Donna gave her, so I've called her Big Foot, the Fallen Fairy, just for now, and she will hang in my craft room all year round. She even carries time on her back in the form of a square watch between her golden wings.
Like a puppy... this fairy isn't just for Christmas!!!
Thanks so much Donna! She will be treasured, will keep me company and make me happy every time I see her.
Thanks again for all your lovely messages last week, especially those for DH and I really hope I can manage to get around some of your desks whilst I'm away.
