Whats on my workdesk today

There is nothing on my workdesk as I have been to busy partying
and being a fashionista
No make up on but trying my VE Day outfit ready for Sunday's outing to Vintage Village at Stockport.
Last Saturday we attended a fashion show "Fashion through the Decades" at The Vintage Emporium, Pear Mill, Stockport.
This little pink bag came from Victoria Baths Vintage Fashion event at the princely sum of £3. The gold glittery cardi and pink glittery top were £10 each
I am planning to make a sketchbook of photographs and record all my bargain buys as there is usually a good story behind each purchase.  
This is a picture of my nana, auntie and nana's friend from the late 60's, incredibly I have the same style outfits in my wardrobe now.  Would'nt it have been nice to have the originals.  Nana has on a floral wiggle dress but the only wiggling she would have done would have been down to the bingo.

Tonight, along with my friend Susan, I'm doing a talk at a local church Women's League group and we will be doing some crafting as well, so I better go and get my gear together.
Have a good week and don't forget to pop over to see what others have been upto at their desks

Where has the time gone ?
Now that spring is here and the leaves are growing on the trees
And the flowers starting to bloom
I've been busy entertaining blog and facebook friends
Twinkle Toes - Mo Allan and grandson Logan
Redanne - Anne Redfern 
Helencrochet1 - Helen Whitcombe - Mel Hearn
Talented craft friends Julie Waters and Susan Woosey
I've been catching up in the office.  
shopping and
falling way behind with my Papercrafting course
The sunshine puts paid to blogging when its to nice to be inside.
Lets see if anyone else has managed to do any crafting or if they have all been sunbathing.

Day 4 - Second pamphlet book

For this book I wanted to see what it would like if I used papers that were plain on one side and patterned on the other
I used wallpapers, handmade papers and printed paper
I'm pleased with the results and will work into now by adding pockets and stitch
