WOYWW 218: the one where WOYWWendy's seeing double

Once again, I'm joining Julia at Stamping Ground for a fun Wednesday romp around desks all over the world. So what's on my desk this week?

A long shot, at best (pun intended)

because WOYWWendy is looking a bit dismayed.  Not sure if she thinks she's seeing double, or if she's disgusted that I've accumulated so many faux credit cards and they are now falling out of their holder.

Well Wendy.  You are NOT seeing double.  I have two very similar rocking horses that I keep in different rooms of my house.  Note the one in back has his tale upside down.  All the more to attract the female, perhaps (grin).

On a more serious note, although I don't have much room to share on my desk, I'm auditioning two flash cards with a transparency I plan to use on top of the one that wins.  Right now, I can't decide, and it looks more like a mess than art.  But at least you got two rockers for the money today!!

I just want to say, I've joined a lot of blog hops lately, and deskers are the BEST.  Julia has everyone trained really well.  Out of all the desks I visited last week, only one requested word verification.  Some say it doesn't slow you down.  They must not visit many people then (grin).

Usual caveat: if visiting from Julia's please leave your number.

WOW WOYWW Wendy is visiting your house?? Do you think she would like to come visit mine before she heads back across the pond? Love the rocking horses. Don't have a number yet was just coming around to make sure I did comment on your T-Tuesday post. I did! Vickie

voodoo vixen said...

Two rockers for the price of one! Yay! Poor Wendy, she probably thinks they are taking over all the spare space she could be sitting in!
Oh and I like the red... for the transparency... red shows up so much better than blue when you photograph it!

Awe one girl and boy you could almost say they are twins :) have a fun week. no # yet hugs Nikki

Two rocking horses, and I love them both. Happy crafting #1

Kimberly Hogan said...

I always look forward to see what kinda rocker you'll be sporting. Today we got double the pleasure. I totally concur on the whole captcha thing. It's very frustrating to me to have to try and read those miniscule little numbers with made up words with unrecognizable letters. The newest thing is proving you're a human by playing some ridiculous game. UUUGGHHH….. anyhoo… I hope this finds you well, btw.. you have a little something coming your way. :D Happy Hump Day!!! (((HUGS)))

Belinda Basson said...

Yip, I hate wordvarification! My son was seeing double...there are eye exercisers to correct this you know? We are busy with them! Though I can actually see two horses here...he would have seen 4! LOL! #43

Love the perky horse tail...maybe he's just very happy for no reason, just feels like kicking up his heels....I can relate to that!

Lynda Norton said...

Great Rockers on your desk this week. I agree Deskers are the best, but I dont know of any other blog hops that I could join, sure they wouldnt be full of such great people as this one though.

Shoshi said...

I love your little rocking horses, Elizabeth. I've never seen any like them, anywhere else. Do you have a good source of such things?

Happy WOYWW,

Cute horses, although not as cute as bears of course! Waving hi from the bears at no. 84

BJ said...

credit cards? auditioning flash card with transparency - I think I have lost the plot and I would never have noticed the tail if you hadn't said. BJ#85

Ooh we get two rocking horses today, we're all seeing double. Love the mandala's you've been making recently, seems such a shame they'll only be fleeting. We're stuck in a cooler, wetter weather pattern too, we have more thunderstorms rolling in this morning, luckily not too much flooding though, but all my toms are staying green and not ripening this year! I agree, modern cars are so much trouble, you can't fix a thing yourself.

Mrs.D said...

Lovely rocking horses, I really like the green one, he's special.
Not sure about your flash cards, I think these things are hard to decide without actually seeing them in the 'flesh', I'm sure Wendy will help you decide.

Gita said...

Cute rocking horses. I don't care for word verification when I am doing hops. It's so annoying. It DOES slow you down. That's a few extra seconds you could already be reading another blog. :-) Brigita #108

Shaz Brooks said...

I save all the fake credit cards too- they have so many uses for a crafter, lol, Very sweet rocking horses this week- very frisky looking. Ear scritches to Bleubeard, Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #48xx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Elizabeth, although I can't join in this week I just had to check in with you in the hope of seeing a rocking horse ... and bless me if there isn't two to enjoy :) Have a great week, Elizabeth x

Adorable rocking horses!

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for your kind comments.

Happy Woyww,

Kim Ferguson said...

#56, newbie who posted last week's first. Am I the word verification you speak of? I may have done such a thing not realizing I have it on my blog.

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Those are some great looking rocking horses. Blessings!

Monica said...

There are a few untrained catchable people left. Irate those word things.

dawn said...

I love your rocking horses!

Just wanted to let you know I posted some of my index cards and will post more I think with next Tuesday's T post.

Hope the weather has been nicer for you. Enjoy your week.

Will be curious to see who/which wins the 'audition' ... for some reason that makes me smile as do your rocking horses E!

Hope your weather is settling down and that all is well

Hello Elizabeth, re your lavender cultivation, I thought this might help...
." It thrives in poor or moderately fertile, free-draining alkaline soils in full sun.
On heavier soils, like clay and clay loam, lavender tends to be fairly short-lived, becoming woody at the base. To prolong the life of your lavender on heavier soil, add organic matter and gravel to improve the drainage and plant on a mound. If growing as a hedge, plant on a ridge to keep the base of the plants out of wet soil"
The organic lavender farm was established by Liverpool University and they scoured the country to find the most suitable spot to establish this farm.
Have a good weekend and thanks for your comment.

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Thanks for your kind words Elizabeth - everyone has been very supportive... my situation feels very similar to your experience - my boss's role has also been made redundant and they didn't get any positions they applied for either... I am moving into the look on the bright side stage and searching for greener pastures LOL - Hugs Mxx

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your lovely comments, Elizabeth. Sorry to hear that you've had weather-related Internet problems - we had our fair share of this a few years ago and it was a real nuisance. Hope all is OK now. So glad you've enjoyed my recent posts. I've had so many favourable responses to the ATC post that it makes me realise I should definitely have posted it months ago lol!!

As for a "belated" WOYWW comment, in my book, no comment is too late if it appears on WOYWW up to 11.59 p.m.! Anything after that is for the next one, I think!

I am sure that everyone loves giving you the little horses. Once you are known for something, they keep coming, don't they! They are so charming and delightful.

Hope you are having a great week.
