What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Again?!

I know, I know, my desk is in this state AGAIN!  I am running out of words to describe it for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Shall I call it "a mess"? I said that last week.  How about "in complete disarray"?  Yup, used that as well.  "Chaotic"?  Done.  Anyway, it is AGAIN, like this...


I am sorting out the brochures I kept getting from the tourist information offices around the places we visited in Europe.  I know, I am a compulsive brochure collector!

At least I can show you the new stamp that my sister Patsy gave me.  Isn't it a beauty? 


And then there is a tin of old accessories, earrings, necklaces, beads, etc that I need to sort out.  But then, I could decide to just close the tin and put it away!

Here is a handmade wedding invitation that I received for my friends' wedding in Ireland...

(the husband-to-be is Filipino and he made this using native Filipino materials (sinamay, a dried sunflower center, wood shaving petals).

And here is my little portion of Paris...

A vintage postcard from the marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen - Porte de Clignancourt, my vintage key on a chain with the cheap Eiffel tower keychain souvenir (maybe I can make a bag charm?), a feather I picked up somewhere, and the clay yoghurt containers that were too cute for me to leave behind.

So, no work in progress on my desk today, hopefully there will be something next week.  For more desks with all sorts of interesting things to see, or to join in the fun, check out the WOYWW list!

And if you are interested to see some pictures of the places I visited around Boston, why not drop by my previous post!

Hi there Peggy ah can so relate to the chaos! you cant see it on my desk, but let me assure you it does reign in other parts of the house.. mostly on the spare room bed, not quite sure why but spare room beds seem to attract clutter till guests come! and love the stamp sis gave you Shaz in Oz.x

Hi Peggy, loved your post this week and the one preceding which brought back fond memories of Massachusetts. We visited Salem and Rockport (absolutely freezing cold in March 1996). And you've reminded me that I have a ton of photographs from my stay in MA that I really should scrap. Oh, and I'd forgotten those huge lobster portions :) Elizabeth x #83

Shocking, lol! Have you used that word yet?? Your bits and pieces look lovely, I had a tin of beads and stuff like that, especially for taking out, looking at and then putting away again. In the end it went to the charity shop! :O
