WOYWW 341: the one where she gets more gifts


This is my work desk as I join Julia at Stamping Ground today.   Poor WOYWWendy looks like she's been imbibing a bit too much.

My desk is filled with more lovely gifts from friends.

This is NOT the "obligatory" rocking horse, but a lovely gift from my friend Debbie.  On the right is one side of a beautiful tip-in from Dianne.  

In addition to Debbie's lovely rocking horse, which included hand sewn fabric, she also sent this lovely card to go with it.  Dianne's other side is shown on the right, as are the wonderful pages and art supplies she sent me that I can use as collage fodder.

Now let's head to Julia's where you can put your desk on display, too!  Please don't forget your number if you are playing in WOYWW.

A pretty grouping of fun things. A nice bright window too. Do you have snow?
So far just a lot of rain. A most unusual warm start to winter. Have a great WOYWW day.

Happy WOYWW and congrats on the No.1 spot. I couldn't see Wendy either - but I am still half asleep and my new varifocal glasses mean that I do not always see clearly! Such lovely gifts. I am sure you will keep them out for a while to admire and stroke. Ali x #13

What lovely items you have on your desk, Elizabeth - so much more interesting than mine was this morning!! I love the big shot of your room - all those lovely little items hung by the window. Thanks for visiting already, and for your compassionate comments.
Take care. God bless.

Lucky you to have such good friends. What a lovely collection of gifts you received. And even though you might be in awe of my fabric painters (many years of collecting them), I am in awe of your great friends and your play space which is much bigger than my little space. Have a super day!

Thank you for your visit last week, sorry I didn't return the visit .... was a bit caught up in festivities!!!
What a great shot of your room and a stunning rocking horse!!
Love the 'wardrobe' above your window - are they cards or just designs? Super idea ..... they would make me happy every time I looked at them.

Have a good week
Christine

Lovely array of goodies! What a treat to see.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh I love this view of your desk..taking in all the little dresses, had forgotten about those! Poor Wendy, you're right, she looks the worse for wear, I'll pass on sharing that particular tipple, thank you! The new rocking horse is fab, how clever of that crafty moose. And hey, a tip in..I don't think I realised that you swapped and did them for others. Hmmm.

Caterina Giglio said...

what a sweet and perfect gift... your rocking horse.. x

Sharon Madson said...

What fun gifts! Love the rocking horse. I can't believe you are number one again. I barely make it to #50! Hugs!

Sharon said...

Nice presents! I like the page. It is very colourful. Like the doll clothes hanging in the background. Did you make them?

Dianne said...

that IS a stunning rocking horse! ♥ enjoy!

Sue said...

Hi Bleubeard & Elizabeth, What lovely things you have on show. I adore the rocking horse.

Can I ask what the little clothes hanging up are for?

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Happy WOYWW

Wow! nearly missed this! Love the gifts! Hugs, Chrisx

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

I enjoyed seeing this different view in your studio and all the lovely gifts you received. The whimsical clothesline with what appear to be dresses for the different months of the year also caught my eye. Blessings!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well, that really is happy mail, huh?! What lovely post to receive...is that rocking horse card made from real metal or foil? It's hard to tell from here...whatever, it's very effective!
Hope your washing machine woes have been sorted...mine is 25 years old and (touch wood) going strong. I tell it I love it to keep it sweet :-D
Hugs, LLJ 12 xxx

Linda Kunsman said...

such lovely and thoughtful gifts Elizabeth! I have to say though that my eye also kept going to those darling dresses hanging on the wall above your window:):)

RosA said...

Your desk is looking pretty tidy too! I guess it's the week for tidy desks :)
My watch is OK now and it was going up til the very moment I pushed it off the kitchen counter! I don't know what the repairer did as he said there was nothing really wrong with it. A mystery :)
Have a good week.

Another late visit from me! That little rocking horse is such a lovely gift - so clever isn't it. x Jo
