My WOYWW PIF is HERE

As some of you know, I joined in on the incredibly fun What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, or WOYWW, 2nd anniversary PIF (which stands for Pay it Forward). We mailed our packages to the next person on the list, and while the one I sent Nicky may or may not have left the US yet,


the PIF I received from OhhhSnap, whose blog I read a lot, is already here. It came Saturday, although I didn't pick it up from my mailbox until yesterday. Can you see my rocking horse that is sitting on my front porch that compliments my gift from OhhhSnap?


In this photo, I have yet to open this envelope, so I'll wait until OhhhSnap shows it Wednesday on her blog. Then I'll show it here on Thursday. I'm really thrilled and delighted with my gift, too!

Other things that might interest you on my desk are my now DEFUNCT Kodak Zi6. I managed to break the on/off button a few weeks ago, and two days ago, I finished breaking it. The button is gone and the little piece that used to stick out so I could turn it on and off has now disappeared into the camera. There is NO way to turn it on because there is nothing in the on/off hole anymore. Also on my desk is a candle I plan to decorate using a napkin, or possibly tissue paper and a rubber stamp. It's a recycled gift for a friend. The gift must be functional, but must come from recycled materials. I picked up the candle at a garage sale and am now planning the makeover.

A quick question: Does anyone know what has happened to "followers" as shown on Blogger blogs? Mine are gone, as is the word, and I've noticed other blogs at least have the word, but aren't showing the icons.

A note about yesterday's blog post: my Queen Elizabeth rose bush has bloomed every year except last year. I cut it back severely this spring, and it rewarded me by not dying, but by producing four blooms. I was tickled.

The Followers will come back.. It's an issue with Blogger, mine have come and gone and come back again...

Gosh, that was quick!! You are a meanie keeping us in suspenders this way...
I can see your followers too... hope Blogger sorts out it's problems super quick!!
I think roses only bloom on new growth... so it was the cutting back that did the trick!!

Hi Elizabeth, that's a really good size candle for your friend. I look forward to seeing it completed :-)
Love your calendar pages, May's are really colourful.
Ooh I'd love to be sitting on your porch right now ;-) My verandah/balcony needs sorting out - pots to sort, a good brushing and then I want to get a small table and 2 chairs to put out there

My followers were coming and going too. My PIF is on it's way to Ohh Snap, as it happens, but I doubt it will have arrived yet. it's going to be so exciting seeing what everyone received.

see you there! said...

Sounds like a fun exchange. My followers were gone last time I looked. Blogger is a mess lately.

I'm on my road trip, so nice to find a place with WiFi - funny how disconnected I feel otherwise.

can't wait to see your altered candle gift E

shame about your camera...hate it when that sort of thing happens...I sometimes think "parts" when something like that breaks...not sure what a more modern camera looks like broken down?

your work table is so tidy!
