What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday # 100

Don't know about WOYWW? Check out Julia's Stamping Ground for all the details.

So what did you think of the big wedding? Several of you I visited made at least some mention of it. Back to the present, here we are at week 100, and I'm working in my basement, trying to get the things that go in my hallway sorted out after the painters threw everything in boxes with no regard to their placement, or content. At least I'm making a bit of progress.



I've got the same shelving unit on the north wall of the hallway,


but I've added two new shelving units on the south wall. Since the hallway is rather narrow, I don't really have enough room to show both units in their entirety. However, I did find a couple of rocking horses sitting around, since I know that's really why you came tonight. Have a great WOYWW and coming week.

Have a wonderful WOYWW Elizabeth - glad to see the rocking horses - but how about Mr Bleu Paws?

Carola Bartz said...

Well, I'm glad you found those rocking horses!!!

akilli melek said...

it seems to take ages after the workmen have been in to reorganise, doesnt it! How come they can make mess in seconds only for the clean to take days????

Suz said...

iI am a disabled organizer and I like that idea...just pit things in the right area without regard for placement. Really, my mind doesn't work that way! I also like buy two new shelves! I think I could add shelves forever!!!
You never know what you will learn here;-)
Fondly,
Suz

Neet said...

You don't mention Bleubeard these days - hope he is ok. Thanks for the peek at your shelving, know what you mean about areas not being easy to photograph but you have done a good job of showing us and how cute that the horses turned up. #14

voodoo vixen said...

It's a slow process but I would point out that the longer you take and the more thought you put into it the better as otherwise you will have to just redo it (yeah, that's me, I unpack and organise in a couple of days and always have to redo it)!! Lovely to see the rocking horses making an appearance too!

Cathy said...

You look like you are slowly getting organised .. I hate having to put everything back after decorating, would love a magic wand!! And you found rocking horses :)
happy Wednesday,
Cathy xx

jude said...

Stressed Stamper said...

yup - I spy them - had to take a second look though - well blended

Tuire Flemming said...

I think I need some kind of catastrophe, too, to get my workingroom into order...
The wedding was lovely and hats were hmmm... creative ;)

I was in my way to here, when I noticed that you had made it first - thanks for visiting :)
Have a lovely week!

Helen said...

Good to see you getting your craft space back to normal! And it is always great to pick out your rocking horses.

Cardarian said...

Nice shelving! I would need to do some sort of clearing and tidying but if you have as little space as I do there is nowhere to expand!
I had a look back at your other posts - love the idea of triple use of a tea bag!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Sid said...

A lot tidier than mine !!

Wipso said...

Fab shelving. What lovely horses on show today.

karen said...

Good luck with sorting your shelves! You will probably come across things that you had forgotten about, so that is a plus!
Happy WOYWW!

Angie said...

Glad to see that you are gradually getting things back to normal ...what a job you are having.
I loved watching the wedding ...what a beautifully serene bride ...not sure what some of the guests were wearing lol

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Looks like you're making progress :) You'd have thought the painters would have at least asked where you wanted stuff to go before just dumping it all.....

JoZart said...

What a big job for you but what a good job you are making of it all. Come to mine next please!! I really wasn't that interested in the royal Wedding until the day... I was so bored with the excessive hype in the run up. When the day came it was such a tide of emotion, happiness, pomp and pageantry. Made me proud to be English! Check my blog again for a fab rocking horse I missed off my Devon photos!
Hugs JoZarty x

Loved teh big wedding and love what's pn your workdesk this Wednesday, Elizabeth!! Eye Spy a rocking horse!!! Btw (it's Debrina here - for some reason, my google account is not defaulting to Debrinas Altered Art Diary! Grrrr)

sandra de said...

Ohh I'm glad those rocking horses have made it up the shelves. Hope you make lots of nice discoveries as you reorganise. I also was wondering how Bluebeard has been lately .... a big pat from me.

Debrina said...

PS. you neeeeed to update your side panel. My new blogger addy is: http://debrinaaltered.blogspot.com/
and I seem to have fixed the google account quirk...hmmmm

ooglebloops said...

Yup, I need more shelving!!! I don't dare reveal my work space right now. I posted a pic way back when, when it was new and clean, neat and orderly - hasn't been that way since - despite my best efforts!!!

Your hibiscus tea sounds yummy

see you there! said...

What a lot of wonderful storage space. The little rocking horses look pretty happy with it.

Jan said...

Looks like durable shelving! Thanks for the snoop :)

Ciara said...

We have some very similar shelves in our garage and they are brilliant. It must feel like an endless task sorting everything out but you'll get there. Hope Bleubeard is well.

Happy 100th WOYWW, xxx

Halle said...

Hooray for organization! I bet it's making you feel better....

RosC said...

Hi Elizabeth. Good to get things in place and visible. And those rocking horses...you're right, I came to see them, and they're so big!
Take care,
Ros (60)

Elizabeth said...

Afternoon Elizabeth, you'll be happy when you get it all straightened out and you can see everything at a glance. You are so right about those rocking horses - too cute to miss each week. I'm surprised Bleubeard hasn't followed suit and taken up residence on one of the shelves too. The Boss would be nosing in all the boxes by now :) Have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

Clare H said...

I suppose that the mess they made of packing your stuff is a good excuse to sort it all out and organize and catalogue and buy news stuff to add to the catalogue!

Pam said...

The wedding WAS beautiful and your space is looking ship shape. Good luck with the redo!
Can you believe WOYWW is 100!

Shazsilverwolf said...

Someone must have let a Tidy Bug loose this week I think, we're all at it!

Marilyn Rock said...

Great storage; so organized and very inviting :) xxoo

Julia Dunnit said...

Gracious, there seems to be an air of massive organisation, will you be labelling shelf edges too?!! I would have to, or it may all just be lost to me!!

Healing Woman said...

I haven't been to a wedding in quite a while so I attended vicariously through your wedding posting. It's a good thing they are spaced isn't it? I'd hate to have to go that distance for another one in the near future.

You are really coming along with your organization.

Anonymous said...

Great organization, Elizabeth. We sure miss Bleubeard. He is always such fun when you show him. And I see the rocking horses, too.

Jingle said...

I SO need to do some organizational work. You certainly ARE making progress!

Twiglet said...

Hi Elizabeth - its ages since I have popped over here to see what you are up to. I don't know where the time goes - Weds come round so quickly don't they. Maybe its something to do with the fact that I am 60 this year!! You seem very busy with your organising. It will be great to have it sorted. All the best. Jo

Kirsty.a said...

It's looking very tidy. Glad you stopped by my blog. Hi, I'm back on the WOYWW trial, having been AWOL for a few weeks.Kirsty 115

Andria said...

How nice to have such great, big shelves to store your supplies in! Good luck with the organizing...always a big task.

Lynn said...

Organization is something I am okay at but when it comes to my art supplies there just IS NOT enough room.

Dandelion and Daisy said...

How many things have you found that you had forgotten you had? Every time I do some reorganizing in my craft room I find...something! It usually inspires me to make something with it. That's alway good.

Sparkly Engineer said...

Organizing for a permanent space? How fun.

Doone said...

Shelving - and storage,

My My Elizabeth - I would have gone crazy by now - it is taking so long for you to get back to normal...

Esther said...

I sooooo need more shelving!! And just to get more organised generally...but I start sorting and always get distracted by things I find and what I could do with them and end up creating more mess instead! Lovely to hear from you ...also loved your Altered Puzzle..some great bits and pieces! Happy WOYWW, Esther xx

SueH said...

There’s something very satisfying about putting everything back on the shelving after the decorating is finished isn’t there Elizabeth.

Happy Crafting

Tammy Freiborg said...

Almost like Christmas I bet - opening the boxes, finding things you forgot you had, having empty shelves and space to fill! As for the big wedding, I LOVED the trees! And some of the hats were a hoot!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

even here in the Philippines, we were interested in the royal wedding. interesting to watch a different culture (we never wear hats to a wedding). i was fascinated with the fascinators!
how nice to have those big shelves to organize stuff in. enjoy your organizing, that's enough exercise for you!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Now what were those rocking horses doing there? Are you sure they aren't planning something? Hope you get your stuff organized soon! It's such a pain isn't it, when we'd rather be crafting!!! Patsy from

Sue from Oregon said...

tricky how you slipped those horsies in this week LOL! Great storage! I am sad that I have not gotten to watch and rewatch highlights of the wedding. I think all that was bumped off because of the national news, but OH MY was Kate and Pippa beautiful!

Morti said...

Always the rocking horses - how wonderful! Love the new storage, there's never quite enough is there?

artangel said...

I think you've inspired me Elizabeth - I desperately need to do some organising of my own! Things are so much nicer when they're all neat and tidy, though that never seems to last with me lol!

While I'm here can I also just let you know that we're holding a charity art auction this week at Inspiration Avenue, if you'd like a peek :)

love the peek at your new crafting space. Lots of shelves to get organized with. Stayed up all night watching all the wedding festivities. Did the same with Charles and Di's wedding then her funeral. It was interesting these past 30 years seeing all the changes. Thanks for sharing. Vickie aka okienurse #36

ShazInOzCardsCalligraphy said...

You have great shelving units there. I would have no trouble at all filling them.
Cute little horses too
Happy very belated WOYWW

Toucan Scraps said...

we've not done any decorating in years. enjoy stacking your new (and not so new) shelves
