What's on my work desk today ....

Start of with a load of these
Use your muscles to do a load of this 
Then after a lot of this 
and this
It will start looking like this amongst other things.
In case you hadn't realised I'm prepping for the first of my 
Book Mouse Paper Folding Workshops.
We will even find time for a cup of tea and a lovely bit of cake.  Speaking of which I better get my pinny on and get baking.  
Don't forget to have a look around a few more desks to see what people are creating this week.

What's on your workdesk this week

Bath Buns .......
I know don't say it "she's away again". Yes your right we have been.  This time to Telford to see these lovely girls 
Then on to Bath which we were very impressed with 
Even the cheeky gulls
I'll have to get back to some work next week as I've got a workshop to facilitate on the 4th July.  So I may not look so relaxed next Wednesday.
You will have to have a look here for the real workers heehee

Todmorden, Tea and Thrifty Treats

When my hair appointment was rearranged at the last minute I had a quick rethink and decided on a trip to Todmorden secondhand market.
 I haven't been for ages.
I found these two hand painted little pictures on different stalls and haggled the price down on both to £4.  
They will be joining the Wall Of Flowers in our bedroom 
These four 4"x3" framed prints where £1.20 for the set in the charity shop and the lace curtain for the utility room door was £2.  I knew I'd find one without having to resort to Dunelm if I searched hard enough.  
I was thrilled to bits with this standard lamp.  I gave mine to my auntie a few years ago on a long term loan. 
 The shade is really old but looks fantastic.
and the lampstand itself is a great shape
This pretty bag, I got for Nicola my partner in thrifty shopping, was a £1.
All this thrifting is thirsty work so I'm off to Taste Tearoom now for a cuppa and a cake
