I didn't make this weekly desk fest last week so I'm determined to make it this week, no matter what ... I get withdrawal symptoms if I don't get my snooping fix organised by Julia, Keeper of the Desk Register - you'll find her at the Stamping Ground if you want to join in. So with no further ado here's a pic of my desk today.
There's a 4"x4" card in progress so, along with the patterned paper, etc., my boxes of ProMarkers are out, and there's my tray of essentials at the back ... can't manage without that. There's also another box, this one containing pens of various types, glue, gold, white, etc.The flower punches are still there from another cardmaking session ... haven't tidied them away yet. I had the Cuttlebug out and a heap of embossing folders recently and had a great time putting it through its paces - the result is that pile of bits and pieces on top of the ProMarker boxes ... I'm working my way through finding a use for them rather than just putting them away somewhere where they will just be forgotten.
I've been a bit poorly lately, a virus I think, but before I came down with the dreaded lurgy we had a trip down to a little town called Sanquhar, near Dumfries, because the Post Office there is celebrating it's 300 year birthday - not only is it the oldest PO in the UK, but it is the oldest in the world!
The door on the right is the original door and the one used by Robert Burns, the Scottish Bard, who was a frequent visitor to this PO when he worked as an excise (tax) man in the area.
Strolling around the town I discovered this bright and cheerful display in a florist's shop window and I thought you might like it too.
From Sanquhar we drove down to Thornhill where we had lunch and we discovered another gorgeous shop window display which I thought the needlewoman among us might like to see.
Love the fabrics, especially the gardening one with the welly boots and the one with the dogs is brilliant.
In a few hours time we will be taking delivery of some new shelving which is going into the new, bigger, craft room that the EM is preparing for me. I cannot wait even though the upheaval is giving me palpitations just thinking about it. Hopefully, next week, I'll be able to give you a guided tour :))
Okay, it's 1.14am here and I should be in bed getting some much needed beauty sleep. I'll be back in the morning to snoop, peer and peek at your desk and catch up on what you've all been up to in my absence ;)
I hope you are all well, welcome to my newest followers, and I wish you a happy WOYWW.
