WOYWW 159

So my desk remains as untidy as ever! Have no idea what that tv programme was. Hand towels I have crocheted 12 in all so far, getting really good now. Envelopes with all the ATCs I have received so far. I must have to clean it up because next Tuesday I have crafting with my gal pals, so watch out for a clean desk next week and maybe something productive on it.

ATCs I have received so far!
wonderful first attempt Ann!

WOW I want to know how you made the letters in this ATC! I love the name of your house.

FOOD!!! eating chocolate smiley some of you have gone hungry because I didn't post any food photos the past few weeks, sorry but I was on a dietdancing smiley emoticon hahahahahaha 
Dinner was mashed potatoes, feuillette of wild mushrooms and green beans with beurre noisette and almonds. You will find the recipes HERE

I saw this online and thought I'd share with you all seeing that the majority WOYWWers are from England/UK. I had to laugh because that's exactly the type of summer we had here, a failed one. 

So run on over to Julia's blog to see this weekly domestic/crafty phenomena

Beautiful ATCs Bridget! I sent mine off but never received any back so I am enjoying them vicariously! :-)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You got some darling ATCs. I know you made a bunch, and it's good to see you have gotten some great ones.

Summer is already here in the states, even though it's not official until tomorrow. Have a great WoYWW from # 10.

Joynana said...

You have such a large desk and so much going on. Love it. Wow you did receive some wonderful ATCs. @14

Danielle said...

I would get so side tracked with a tv on my desk. I pay too much attention to it and forget what I am doing. What a great pile of ATC's that you received. dani22

Nice to visit and I love that computer screen! FAIL. that is hilarious, try Spain. I want to know more about ATC's - I feel ignorant. Waving hello from the smallest state in the USA: Rhode Island!

Happy WOYWW. Fab ATCs. I forgot to post a photo of the ones I received, so must rectify that today. I would love a tv in my craft room - then I can combine 2 of my hobbies together. British summer - we had that back in April! Ali x #61

Ann B said...

Just what I love a big messy space to look at, and so productive. Love your 'installing summer' pic as well but they were wrong, it has arrived is only a little late. I fear it will be short lived though - again.

Hi Bridget!

Love your desk!! I can really see myself joining in on the fun. You have a great collection of ATCs there - that fabric one is very cool!

The food - oh my - it looks yum!

Time got away from me so I'm not linking up this week - bummer. Just thought I'd drop in to say hello.

Hugs,

butlersabroad said...

That joke about the UK would be funny if it wasn't true, lol! The weather has been so weird this year so far, hope these hot temps for us aren't a sign of things to come this summer. Love all the atc's you got too.

Amy E said...

I LOVE the British Summer graphic!!!! That's exactly how I feel here in Seattle. I think today is only the second day all season that it's gotten up to 70 degrees. (21C.)

Congrats on all your new handtowels!!! I'm sure they're all just as cute as the first ones!!

Art and creativity are a messy business, so your desk just reflects that. I love all the ATC's and would love to be involved in one sometime. The dinner plate looks great. I cook for my family sometimes and thought about posting a picture of my dinner a couple of days ago. However, my wife and one of my girls were running late, so it all looked kind of dry by the time they got home. Still tasted good, but did not make a Food network picture like yours. LOL!

mommyle said...

I LOVE the 'time flies' ATC. I might have to scrap-lift it!
Your desk looks amazing!

Monica said...

A desk i can relate to. It is so much fun to find all the things hidden in a messy desk. AND the creativity is flowing

Shoshi said...

Great desk, Bridget - and thanks for sharing the food again - I was feeling quite hungry when visiting recently! I laughed at the British Summer pic and have downloaded it - must use that, it's hilarious! lol!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I would be delighted to sell some cards and coasters. Just give me a chance to catch up after the show and get sorted - I'm thinking of revitalising my Etsy store again as that might be the best way to go about it. Do you have a Paypal account? That would be a lot easier than international money orders, I think.

Thank you for your Gorgeous ATC!!! It came a couple of days ago - so busy, and now so exhausted - no time to contact you before this! As soon as I'm sorted out, I'll get going on some more ATCs and yours will be on its way. Hope you don't mind the delay.

Sorry to miss WOYWW this week but something had to go if I was going to be ready for the show.
