WOYWW 66

Ok that time of week again and what do I have on my desk?

A very old dictionary, a pair of old wood shoe trees and some old lace all of which I stopped going into the rubbish bin on Monday, and of course the cat on the chair!

So there is not a lot of crafting going on at my table at the moment, but I have got something going through my head that I will start later so will have to see how that goes.

I am suffering with a bad case of Lounge envy this week, I don't normally notice peoples houses in the "I wish I had that" kind of way, but this week I am noticing just how nice peoples lounges are. Now our lounge is minute you can get a 3 seat sofa across the back wall just that is how wide it is. And there is no space to display anything, so all the things we brought with us are still in the boxes they came in and that after 5 years is starting to get to me. (Strange thing to put on here and I didn't know I was feeling that way until I wrote it, I think I am finally cracking up!)

Ok sorry about the tangent I went off in there, I did manage to get around to every one last week but some I could not get to take my comments, so if I didn't leave a comment that is why. If you are wondering just what I am on about pop over to see our leader Julia, her link is in the side bar to the right of this.
Right off to get a cup of tea and have a play.

Thanks for reading,
 Cath

I'm intrigued by your plans for those shoe trees - especially since you don't have room to display anything!

morning Cath - you have lounge envy - I have cat envy. It's so lovely to visit everyone's desks and see a cat curled up somewhere. Just wish I had one! - Jacqueline xx

I can completely understand about having boxes around - I can't wait for all mine to be empty, they are driving me nuts.

Can't wait to see what you do with your shoe thingy-me-bobs!!

'See' you next week!

I'm in love with everything on your desk: shoe trees, lace, and dictionary. What a treat for an altered artist to see.

Feel free to vent. I totally understand your "envy" and need for a change.

Fab items on your desk, the lace is gorgeous and I am intrigued by what you might do with the shoe trees.

Oooh - whose bin was it? Wish I could come across someone about to chuck a load of cream lace and an old dictionary in their bin, lol!

Doone said...

oh Cath - it's no good to have no space - it can be coped with for a while but people do need space, however, your mood may be lifted when you alter those found goodies - ooh yeah...

Lovely lace and interesting shoe trees! Having loads of space is overrated, you just have more stuff to clean and tidy up!!

mmm, that dictionary and lace talk to me a little more than the shoe trees. As for lounge envy Cath - it's OK, you're allowed - you're probably suddenly missing what might be in the boxes!

Look at all the pretty lace :)

Lovely lace, good show stopping that form going in the trash!
