WOYWW 97 - the dangerous one...

Ok, talk about a title and a half.  Now, for people who have come here by accident, WOYWW is something set up by Delectable Desk Detective Dunnit, and you can find out more here.

Moving on from last week's kitchen table, Mr B suggested that I really should call this "WOYFW" as in What's On Your Floor Wednesday.  No, it's not THAT anacronym, Doone.....  See below.

We've moved off the table and onto the floor, and what you see lined up before you is the final stages of the marathon painting session.  There are more lurking around the corner in the cloakroom!  I would like to thank Mr B and even Lil Miss B for their assistance - without them this would have been an epic fail.  Grateful thanks indeed go to Mr B who has varnished all these today while I've been at work.  Twice.  That's not to say I've done nothing.  Someone had to cut the stencil and mark up all the boards, and paint.  The two B's just helped, one much more than the other.  Lil Miss B even put her hand to sanding.  Nuff said.

Normal service will resume next week.  There's an art journal just crying out for me to take part - except I'm 15 weeks behind and have some SERIOUS catching up to do.

And go on, you know you want to join in the candy - there's only 16 entrants so far and whilst I know it's not the greatest selection, there is a recession on you know.  I'm not sure how people can afford to offer such great candy.  *sigh*  Still, you might be in with a chance of winning this one if not many take part.  LOL.  So if you want to join in, go HERE

Catch you around!  We're off to Corfe Castle this weekend for an event, so if you're in the area, pop in!

Really cool signs, I know what you mean about blog candy! I too am amazed at what is on offer sometimes. My first blog anniversary is coming up soon, and I know my financial constraints are going to make it impossible to do a blog candy. Shaz #105

arrows - this is all I can think now (and I learned this when I was 18 and it it is still burned into my brain:

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action. - Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember'd.

why the living bechesus could he knot of just said,

Choose Life?

and spared a load of kids alot of homework?

I quite fancy one of those signs for our front garden. Do you think they would stop what are politely termed "doorstep callers"?

Thanks for dropping by my place today. It feels like it's been longer, though. I suspect it's because you were so busy making and sanding all those signs. Seems like that would be more than a day's work, too. Happy WOYWW.

Julia Dunnit said...

15 weeks behind! Made me laugh - it's OK, treat them as prompts and don't count any more, too much pressure! As for blog candy - hey, a gift is a gift right - if people don't want it, they don't have to enter; I think it's extraordinarily generous in gesture, let alone goods.

Angie said...

Bet you are glad you have finished those signs. I loved working on the floor when I was young ...sadly age and increased weight means getting back up in almost impossible lol

Twiglet said...

Good luck with the flying arrows!!
What a busy week you have had.

BrossArtAddiction said...

Happy be-lated WOYWW!

I have some yummy candy on my blog if you'd like to check it out! :D

Thanks for asking, Kitty is safe, clean and dry. I like your wax scenes on your slide show. I have watched demos but I never seem to get around to doing the wonderful projects. Lovely to see someone who does more than hop from one blog to another!! Actually I like a lot of your cards on your slide show. Tis a bit mesmerising.....

Carola Bartz said...

My floor is often "busy" as well. I like when the entire family works on one project!
