Not a lot of work going on at the moment, more a case of what was left after some stamping and also the putting together of some decoupage sheets I bought ages ago. They were very pretty, with coppery gilding highlighting the flowers. I have no idea who the maker is, as there was nothing to identify them on the plastic bags, but I do know that I bought them on a trip down to Hayley West's shop (Little Lou's in Redditch). I had come across them again on a search for something else, and decided it was time to put them together. If you want to see the results of the stamping, you will need to have a look at my blog from last week. I have just continued from there, extending the techniques a little.
The important stuff on my desk today is actually what was in a parcel which arrived yesterday morning. It was my winnings from the very generous Jo's Blog Candy (http://jozartdesigns.blogspot.com/). I really love it all, and I can think of lots to do with every bit of it. Thank you so much, Jo. It is all appreciated.
The rest of the week has not gone quite as well as we would have liked. Still in the middle of redoing the living room, we had ordered two storage units to take things like the DVD player, the Virgin box and all the other peripherals that go with an entertainment system. We were foolish in that we took it for granted that a unit shown with what appear to be DVD players etc on it would be right for us. WRONG!!! Very wrong. Nothing would fit on those shelves. So we are now trying to sort things out with the company to exchange them for the ones we really need to fit things on (which are, of course, more expensive). Very frustrating, but before I totally depress you all, why don't you just nip over to the blog of our esteemed leader Julia, who has handed things over for this week to her Lunch Lady Jan at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
where you will find the links for more than 100 more desks to study. Have fun and thank you for joining me this week.
PS Just had a call from the furniture company to say that everything is now set up for the exchange. They are just waiting for the TV stand to come in next week and they will collect the wrong things and bring us the right things. Life is looking better. Right, I am off now to watch Federer and the other at Wimbledon. Everything stops for that, even crafting.
