WOYWW... Couldn't Resist...

...showing you THAT box... you know, the one I made when I was with the Duke of Distress last Thursday, can it really be nearly a week since that day already??? Anyways... today is Wednesday, although it does feel like Tuesday at the moment because I couldn't sleep so I haven't had any sleep and now I am needing sleep and I am getting garbled again (oooh, nowt new there then ROFL) anyways... Wednesday... yes, time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, devised, invented and hosted by the uber tidy and organised (snort) Julia... if you click on her name you can see all the deets etc on how to join in....





So, temporarily on the desk is THE box... just put there to show it off again... also on the desk is a plastic cup half full of murky looking painty water... which reminds me... last week, I was hooting all day because a lot of desk hoppers thought that I had a glass of wine on my desk (along with the chocolate, which was real ROFL) ... oooh, no... I don't touch a drop, no it was blacky-painty water and still had a brush sticking out of it ... I think someone said it was a straw (now that would be crafting in style, a straw in wine... now, is it true that if you drink booze through a straw it gets you drunk quicker?? I wouldn't know, seeing as I never touch a drop ;o))



This next pic is where THE box actually lives, alongside that gorgeous birdycage that LindaE bought for me and another gorgeous birdycage that Ellen bought for me... I lurve birdycages btw... oh and there is my little Poppy bless her, wasn't she just the most beautiful puss ... and some rather splendid door handles that I have picked up on my expeditions. Oh yes, the other inky thing on my desk... a WIP about Gemini's, of which I am... I have just found out from Mr Google that apparently Gemini's are (and I quote) eloquent and intellectual (snort again), flitting from one subject to another and always in an excited state wanting to talk a lot but never concentrating on one thing for too long... now, that must be wrong because I am not like that... am I??? Anyways... time for bed said Zebedee... I have had this really nasty mean evil cramp in my spine since Saturday... probably all the excitement of the past few weeks creeping up on me!!! Thanks for looking... happy WOYWW day... TTFN

Your gorgeous box has style. I love your 'memory' space where it sits. Just perfect. Forgot to turn my little light on in my phot, der!
Wasn't the day simply magic? Certainly one I shall never forget.

Oh poor you, sleeplessness is horrid, specially caused by pain - I hope you can relax it off. YOur Tim project is the fabbest; I came so close to buying a white birdcage like that - and then lost me nerve! SOunds like you need time off, so your desk will probably stay alarmingly tidy for another week!

Hels your configurations box, sorry I mean THE box lol, is beautiful, you have every right to show it off as much as possible!! And to brag about the fact you got to attend a workshop with the Duke!!

And it looks beautiful in pride of place on your shelf, next to that gorgeous birdcage and charming photo.
