WOYWW 342: the one where there's nothing to show


Twas just three days before Christmas, and all through the land

folks were sharing their desks with Julia of Stamping Ground.  Mine was bare, with nothing to show.

Even my sewing machine refused to glow.  No rocking horses appear on the desk,

but a few elsewhere sport their Christmas best.

The trees which are obvious throughout the house, share their time with the rockers

and possibly a mouse!  Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it.

Please join me at Julia's where the Wednesday celebration never sleeps.  And please leave your number if you are playing in WOYWW this week.

Wonderful verse...that would have taken me ages! It does all look super tidy..although on your desk, the honey bear bottle filled with glue seems to be keeping an eye out for you! I love the sight of your decorations - those stocking hangers are gorgeous aren't they - bet they sparkle and twinkle beautifully in the light. Have a lovely lovely Christmas.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Have a lovely Christmas with that Bleubeard!
Hugs, LLJ 11 xx

Hi Elizabeth,

I didn't even attempt to show a desk this week! Love your little poem with the photos of your decorations. Maybe your sewing machine will see action over the Christmas break?

Merry Christmas to you and yours and have a crafty 2016!
Happy WOYWW
Hugs,

I love your rhyme
but I think it's time
to get myself some rest.
Your house is at it's best
and I think I'll say
I'll write some more another day!
Hugs, Chrisx

Diana Taylor said...

What a lovely clean desk - just perfect for starting new projects in the New Year - I can really only relax when I'm tidy and organised! I love the curly tree with the teddy under it - and I also love the stocking holders - so gorgeous and festive. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a happy, peaceful and arty crafty New Year!

Such a delightful poem with pics you did for the WOYWW - an your cards are wonderful - so much detail. Sending wishes for a Merry Chrismtas and all things crafty in 2016!

Mrs.D said...

Elizabeth, love the poem, but not sure you should look to a career in poetry yet. I love the look of a clear working surface, all ready for new and exciting projects in the New Year.
I love you crystal rocking horse and tree, they are smashing.
Thanks for dropping by my desk, and the lovely comments you made. The Thank you cards were some part made cards that I was either going to have to find a home for or stick Thank You die cuts. The die cut option was less mentally stressful than trying to find a home for them.
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Bless you.

My desk too. It will be clean until after this holiday weekend and then I plan to make it a MESS! Having fun of course!

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier : D. Your workspace is ready for your next inspiration. Apparently the warm weather kept the mice busy outside this year because Archie didn't bring me any dead ones (which are better than bringing me live maimed ones).
