What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Spanish Señorita Work in Progress

It's time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and on my desk is a variety of things (notice that I have again used an open drawer to make up for the small surface area of my desk.)


Here is the Spanish Señorita painting I showed you last week.  I have added her lace veil and a fan.  She still needs a hand to hold the fan and some other revisions.


We've been having typhoon weather and yesterday we didn't go to work.  Since there was no electricity, I spent part of the day cleaning up the attic.  I found a pile of thread, lace and embroidered cloth...


and a bag made out of woven telephone directory pages (no, I didn't make it).

 

Last weekend, we went to a province six hours away and while I was there I found a thrift shop where I bought this little copper box for P10 (£ 0.15 or $0.23).


And here is a book I couldn't resist buying for P15 ((£ 0.22 or $0.35).  No, it's not for reading but to alter someday.  Hopefully.


Here is a crucifix I got from the World Youth Day Pilgrim's Pack and here is my post about World Youth Day: Part 2 (wow, I actually got to post in between Wednesdays!)

 
Do drop by Julia's blog for the WOYWW list and get to see desks from all over the world.  Happy WOYWW, everyone!

Oh I must not have stopped by last week as I missed the lovely señorita. She is looking just fab. And all I can say is HA!. I never get anything as useful out of our attic (or garage) cleaning sessions as lovely lace, I get spiders, mouse dropping, and dust bunnies. Not fair- AND you get sunshine too ( ok, and typhoons)

Hope your power comes back on soon

Shoshi said...

Oooh all your lovely lovely stuff! I love the picture you're painting, and all the fun things you found in the attic, as well as the bargains you bought. I can't believe that basket was woven from old phone books! Recycling doesn't have to be boring, does it. Happy WOYWW.

JoZart said...

Great post Peggy.
Amazing finds in your attic but I hope your weather improves soon. Mind you if it continues... who knows what you'll find!
Enjoyed reading all your posts about your World youth trip. A friend of mine attended a few years ago and shared her experiences.
Your senorita is just lovely.
Love JoZarty x

Lots of wonderful finds. That telephone bag is amazing. Your Senorita is looking gorgeous too.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I got a late start because I fell asleep before I could link up with Julia. Your desk is always fun to see. Looks like you have it in the bag! The fact that you actually got work done during a typhoon is amazing. I adore that lace!

I'm 42 this week, not even in the top 10!

artangel said...

Your señorita is beautiful - is that a real wooden fan you've used?

All your treasures are wonderful especially the lace - what a great find!

Elizabeth said...

Your senorita is even more beautiful this week and that attic find is truly great. Telephone directories are featuring a lot on WOYWW this week. Happy WOYWW and hope you have a great week ahead. Elizabeth x #73

Bella said...

Thought I was the only one who used an open drawer in desperation for extra surface space!
