WOYWW 166 - Keepin' it brief....

Happy WOYWW to you!  For all the deets visit Ms Julia here and join up with the weekly bloghopping wonder that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  And here is my effort....

Ta dah!

Nada....


I'm having a week off from crafting. 

But just so it doesn't look like I've done nothing - remember the mystery item?  Several of you guessed that it was a tissue box, but no-one guessed from the other items on my desk that it would be a little bit steam-punky, and look like this:





Least of all our LLJ for whom it was intended.  Having safely handed it over yesterday, I have now been able to reveal it.  Can't wait to do another!

Hoping you all have a lovely day today - I'm off to Glastonbury with Mr B and Lil Miss B, so if you see us at the top of the Tor, give us a wave!

If I see you at the top of the Tor, I'll be wearing an oxygen mask from the climb. Although you might take the bus...!
I seed it IRL and it's fab...the highlighted relief and stuff is amazing.

Love your tidy desk! I haven't properly crafted for a week (Olympics!) but don't have a tidy desk.... Love the tissue box! Helen, 4

Hi Morti,
Good idea to have a week off now and then. I love glastonbury even if it can be full of tourist sometimes. The atmosphere at the tor is strange...very peaceful though. And of course there's the beautiful views.
Have a good day.

Hi Morti, I don't think it does any harm to take a week off from crafting, gives you time to recharge your mojo batteries and, by the sound of it, have fun with the family :)

Love the tissue box - that's one you'd enjoy looking at even when you have a streaming cold!!! Must check back, did you just use a bog standard and empty tissue box or was it a crafty buy, I wonder.

Happy WOYWW and have a great week with lots of fun. Elizabeth x #18

Happy WOYWW and congratulations on being no.1. We were in Glastonbury a few weeks ago, but didn't get up the Tor (spent too long wandering around the Abbey). Lovely place. Ali x #81

Hi Morti,
Congrats on being number one!!! I bet that was a trick, what with Mr. Linky being MIA for a bit.

The tissue box looks great. I guess the steampunk style is starting to grow on me.

Happy WOYWW

Hi there, I have just had 3 weeks off, not because I wanted to, life just happened. But now I am back and rearing to go, so the time off must have been good for me.
Love that tissue box!

Wow what a tissue box, saw it over on LLJ's post. You are talented. I can almost wave at you, up there on the Tor. It's not that far from me. Take care & enjoy snooping this week. Zo xx 77

Tidy, tidy, tidy! I have been taking a lot of time off this summer, too! Sometimes it is good for the soul.

Cath Davidson said...

Your craft desk is fab, what a great work area. Lovin' the tissue box! It's lush!

butlersabroad said...

Love Glastonbury, the Chalice Gardens and the Abbey ruins are also worth seeing. Actually just sitting in a cafe and watching the world go by is a fun thing to do there! Love the tissue box, saw it over at Jan's, very cool.

You have left your desk lovely and tidy for when you get back. The tissue box is interesting, though perhaps not quite my style.
I have blog candy on offer so feel free to sign up for a chance to win.
Enjoy Glastonbury.
