What's on my workdesk today

 Back from holiday and the things I brought home.
Postcards I picked up in St. Ives

Some lovely Christmas cards I got from Whistlefish in Falmouth

CARDS - Elaine Pamphilon's "Song Thrush & Hellebores".   Patrick Heron's "Small Red Square with Green & Yellow". Sue Dove's "Dog & Duck"            

Tickets from places we visited

Beads I bought from in St. Ives

And finally these felt beads from which we are going to use at our Sunnybank Day Centre craft club.

Thank you to everyone who visited my empty desk last week and commented on the look back at Tag Tuesday.

Have a look what's on some other desks now at WOYWW

  6. Love the arty postcards and the felt beads, so many little treasures. We bought a set of photos when we were in Norfolk and all I need are some Ikea frames and up they will go.
    Long, long time since I was in St Ives, memories of long hot days and long cool ciders in the Lifeboat pub.
