WOYWW 158

These Wednesdays don't half come speeding round, doesn't seem 5 minutes ago that we were all signing up to ATC swaps but it is 2 weeks ago.  Thank goodness for Julia's long-term commitment to running the global phenomenon that is Whats On Your Workspace Wednesday. Pop over to the Stamping Ground if you want to know more.
Enough rabbiting on, you want to see my desk.
The photo was taken yesterday, when the sun shone, again, in the north-west of England and I was working on two pages for my deco book so the desk is covered  in metal, tools, stamps, and other 'essentials'.
If you want a closer look at the pages then I posted yesterday - see here.

I know Julia likes us to keep posts short and there are lots of desks to get round but I just had to share the ATCs that have been falling on my doormat this past fortnight, so here they are.

Mark, RosA, Toni, RedAnne, Jo, Helen.

Jill, Tuire, Princess Judy, Annie, Donna, Julia.

Hettie, Janet (FairyThoughts), May and Lynn. A fabulous collection - thanks to everyone for your swaps.

Finally, I bought a new sewing machine yesterday and am getting rid of my 40 year old one.  It isn't fit to pass on to anyone else but I do have a collection of feet that have different connections to my new machine. Not sure if anyone out there can use them but if you can then let me know and you are more than welcome to have them.  Here's a little picture.

Good Morning Ann, that is a great collection of ATCs you have there and nice pic of your desk, still loving that balloon stamp you used and can see a pic of it on your desk. No Mr Linky yet but have a good WOYWW, Anne x

What sort of machine are the feet for Ann? Don't think I need any but I'm sure there will be someone out there in blogland that would make good use of them. :-)

In case anyone is wondering about the feet, they are from a New Home machine, but a very old one.

You have a stunning collection of ATC's there, Ann and set of beautifully in that sunshine. Do you think you could send some over the Pennies, it's horrible here again today!!
I was so sorry to have missed all the Birthday celebrations, seeing all the ATC's is wonderful.

What a great haul of ATC's! Love them all. A new sewing machine is something to celebrate, mine is so old, my mom made my nappies on it more than 50 years ago and it is still going strong!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Great lot of ATCs you received. I hope you got a wild west one of mine too, to go along with the bats. I tried to send everyone two--one WOYWW one (the wild west) and one spare one from when I used to make extras. I wonder what the postman thinks with all these envelopes from overseas?! I want to come play with all the things you have on your desk. They look like fun!

Love your desk and especially your vintage deco pages. They are great with these metal 'pictures' on it. You said you bought a new sewing machine. I hope you enjoy it and maybe you can show some things you've made with it. Have fun and thanks for sharing. Bye, Franka
