WOYWW: This Week's Finds


What's on Your Workdesk this Wednesday? Here's what's on mine - a bargain book on scrapbooking, some dried pods I picked up while on my early morning walk...


an old "Barong Tagalog" from my husband (traditional Filipino formal wear for men made of woven pineapple fibers, with lovely embroidery)...


Since parts of it are already frayed, I get to use it for some project (don't hold your breath waiting to see the project though).


And as always, a page from my prayer journal, this time with a bit of old gift wrapping paper for her dress. I will also try to share this in Word Art Wednesday.

Thank you all, for your prayers and support during this challenging time for me and my family.  I really appreciate it.  Blessings to all of you!

Wow, woven pineapple fibre..who knew - isn't it beautiful. Now, I just want to enquire, how much do you do in your 'early morning'..you walk, you reflect, you pray, you paint in your journal...do you ever sleep?

Christine said...

Wonderful finds .... interesting seed pods.
Love that material but I won't hold my breath, how to use that to best advantage will take time.
Blessings to you

What a beautiful piece of embroidery, Peggy - so delicate. Your art work is as beautiful as ever, and that is one of my favourite Scripture verses - in fact that whole passage at the beginning of Ephesians.

Happy WOYWW,

Thanks for your visit, Peggy. Glad you enjoyed exploring the teabag art! Yes, it's another thing not to throw away because you can make art out of it! I have been having fun colouring teabags with distress inks this p.m. and am in the middle of making a video.
