WOYWW #159 - Oh Deary Me!!

Well most of you were very tolerent last week and said my desk was ok... but Oh deary me, this week, I think even the most untidy amongst you will be utterly dismayed!!! And why would that matter??? Well, we love to snoop, and pry and oggle, all with the express permission of the lovely Mrs. Dunnit at the Stamping Ground... she said we could and so we do... but no-one expects (the Spanish inquisition... tee hee for those old enough to remember Monty Python!!!!) to see a scene of such utter devastation!!!

Do I have an excuse, I hear you cry... well a ickle bit yes and a ickle bit no... yes, because I have been in the garden trying to sort the chaos that has been two winters of bad weather - actually, folks, she had one of her "issues" with it again, and could not bear to go in it for months - and no, because I should tidy after a project, and be good!!! The last thing I made was for the Stampman DT challenge, here, and it can be seen on my window sill below...
 So go on... what can you see?? What do you find interesting or puzzling here then?? Feel free to ask or guess!!! And I truly KNOW it's a horrid mess, but am having some problems with the pre-tidy, tidy up!!! I began weeks ago byr seem to have stopped and run out of steam... oh well, wood for trees or something, so I MUST adjust it to cleanliness!!!
 And here are a few ickle pressies I allowed myself this week, some wonderful metal and TH bits, so I shall have a lovely play with them very soon.

And speaking of pressies, I collected my NEW mini yesterday (Monday) It is wonderful - a special Olympic edition, only 2012 made, with leather, heated seats and all sorts of other mod cons... shall post a piccie of it later in the week oif you care tocome back and see!!! She is a beauty, and so comfy... - fewer if even less crafty goodies for you then, my girl, with a ickle jobby to play with!!! Oh well...

I am off then now, as I am trying not to bore you ridgid this week... mother watching and gardening duties permitting, I shall endeavour to be less naughty and get to more of your desks for a snoop this week... keep the comments coming, as they REALLY help on a dark day!!
Love and Light
Frankie

Since I live in the states, I had to keep reading before it hit me what a MINI is. Pretty awesome, if you ask me, and so, so much better than anything TH (grin)!! Have a great WoYWW from # 10.

Now that's a busy desk!

Who needs tidy? Creativity calls for clutter sometimes.
Have fun ~ Happy WOYWW

What a joyous scrum you have here. What I really want to know is what's in The Box?
Glad you give yourself presies too.

Wow, the mini sounds amazing - have fun scooting around, you Girl Racer!!

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition - one of my fav Python sketches. In Winchester Cathedral, there is a tomb of Cardinal Henry Beaufort and he looks just like Michael Palin from that sketch, lol!!! Hat and all... hahahahahaha. Well, it amuses us Appletons anyway :D

Hazel said...

It's just obvious from your somewhat cluttered (!) desk that you've been so creative that you've need all that stuff out (plus you've rightly been in the garden) thanks for the opportunity of having a peep at your workspace - trying to make a few visits early this week! Hazel, WOYWW #87 x

Ann B said...

Your desk makes me smile, and feel less guilty about my own. Love the metal, lots to play with there.
Enjoy your new Mini, I had a Mini Clubman in the late '70s and loved it. We went all over the country from Scotland to Kent to Jersey and France and it never let me down. Still miss it.

Julia Dunnit said...

Bliss. Someone else making excuses!! What's in the box then Mrs? Or is it the outside of the box that's about to be transformed?!
And you know what, I have a theory about people like you and DT positions....I reckon you don't get them becauae you do a fab job of promotion all on your own..so why would they give you the stuff when you buy it AND produce wonderful pieces with? Anyway - you don't wanna DT position, you need independence and freedom so you can say what you like!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I forgot to say - congrats on the Mini, what a fab fab way to celebrate being a Brit this year.

Angie said...

Yeah ...someone who has a desk nearly as choatic as mine....mine is that bad at the moment I wonder some days whether I actually have a desk under it all.lol #9

Sandy said...

Wow a new mini no wonder you have not tidied or crafted you would be zooming around enjoying the driving. Look at all those lovely Tim goodies waiting for you to have fun with. Sandy :)

Gabrielle said...

Gardening is overrated in my book (and blummin' ongoing!) so a few TH goodies is the least you should expect! Love the sound of your new car! I bet you're off right now, zooming around with your fancy gadgets! Much Wednesday love x #56

Claire said...

Lizzie said...

WEeeelllll I agree that you need to clear a teeny space... so you have room to play with all the new toys! Maybe you could just bung that wooden box on the floor?

Lovely to see a truly In Progress desk! Have fun!

Twiglet said...

You have to garden when the weather is right - the rest of this week will be awful so you can get in that craft room. Unless you are swanning off in that fab MINI!!!!!! x Jo

May said...

Tracy said...

Oh it looks deliciously messy and creative! Mine gets into that state quite often. Now that my daughter is home from school, she's been playing with me which means more mess! :) A wee bit of vitamin sunshine is good for the creative soul. Happy WOYWW! Warmly, Tracy #105

Lisa said...

My space has been like that way too many times. But somehow we always find space to craft!

Judy said...

Your desk made me smile. Just shows you're like the rest of us. I would love to dive into/onto that desk!!!
