WOYWW - Week 434

Good Morning Everyone ...

... on this the last What's On Your Desk Wednesday before The Crop on Saturday. We start out trip to Wales tomorrow morning, breaking for an overnight stop at Lancaster on the way. Which is why there's nothing creative on my desk this morning - zilch, nada, nowt, not a thing!

So boring!

That being so, I thought I'd show you something much more entertaining.
Spotted yesterday when we left the Book And Bun, where we had lunch with our friends. This is Highland Cow McCoo, the very colourful creation of artist Steven Brown, in his recently opened shop - he calls it his flagship store so clearly has plans to expand - in Newmarket Street, Ayr. Steven is famous for his fabulous paintings of McCoos and McZoos which seem to be finding their way into everything from posters to calenders and cushions to mugs, though I've yet to see a multi-coloured coo chomping on a thistle in any of the fields nearby. 

Now how brief was that - just like Head Desker Julia likes it - and so rarely gets from me!

Looking forward to meeting everyone on Saturday.

Wishing you all a very happy WOYWW.

Hi Elizabeth.
Fantastic - would love to see him/her munching on a thistle!! Travel safely tomorrow and Friday. Enjoy Lancaster. See you Saturday. By the way - any food issues for the pair of you?
Take care. God bless.

Have fun at the crop - it sounds like a marathon journey for you! What a fun photo - love the indoor tree! Don't forget to take photos at the crop for those of us who can't make it! zsuzsa #13

Almost cried laughing here! My elderly, but sprightly and much loved, Scottish guardian from my Germany boarding school days recently described me as one of these - at aged 16 or 17 I might add! Apparently he longed to take shears to the huge fringe! I let him away with it when he confessed of course :)

See you Saturday!
Love the colourful Coo - yes, I have seen some of his work - think on Facebook - and I like. Not that I can afford, I am a crafter and spend far too much on other things. Tut tut!
Hugs, Neet 8 xx
