WOYWW, 14th April

Good morning snoopy ladies!

How are you all on this lovely Wednesday morning??? We are just about to have some sun coming through the clouds so I hope it will be a nice day! It is a nice day anyway because it is WOYWW! YIPEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
This post will be much shorter, then the last one was as I won't be showing any of our lovely country - it was very dull all these last days so no photos....still I have a few of my pinky room, so lets get right on it:

First my desk....a bit of a mess I am afraid ....I did change something - I had my ink pads in a box before but because I use them everytime I do something I took them out of the box and they are now on the shelf....the box was used for my flower stash.



This is a close up of the right side of the desk - remnants of my gold anniversary cardmaking....still not finished - will get some new ribbon today and then finish it off!

Swing to the left.....a cuppa, my pearls, my phones and all the rest of the junk ha, ha....


My pinky room is quite narrow so behind where I sit is about 50 cm and then there is a wall that is covered in antique Chinese pictures...my great uncle ( my grandads brother) was a missionary in China so he brought these back from China about 80 years ago....they where laying around my moms house for a long time when I decided to take them and I think they look good on my pink wall - I haven't changed the frames they are still the 1920 ones, some of them are falling apart - I think because of the temperature differences or maybe just because they are so old! 

So there a bit more of the pinky room revealed! 
I have to go and move a library so my dear ladies enjoy your snoop and I will be back to see all your messy desks as soon as I can!
Hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

  11. Hi - i agree so much about changing things on your desk and putting those things you use most closer to hand... you've got me thinking now about how i need to follow this lead.

    Love that card you are working on - its going to look great and can't wait til you blog the finished product.

    Wow - those chinese pics are a real treasure and prob antiques of the future - hope they're not in direct sunlight.

  14. Great card you're working on, I love that Hero Arts stamp. I keep moving my stuff round all the time, after a while you figure out what works best based on what you use a lot. Love the prints too, it's great to have these treasures that connect us to our families. My husbands GFather was a captain in the Merchant Navy and used to sail to the East Coast of Africa a lot, we have a number of interesting things dotted around the house that he brought back.

    Hugs

    Beautiful card on your desk and desk looks very tidy. I should think those Chinese pictures will be worth something maybe you need to have them valued.
