Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

It's all Julias fault..

I tidied up yesterday, and it was looking tidy (ish) and then I remembered that I should be making something to celebrate WOYWW's birthday, so now its a mess again and the only person who can take responsibility for that is Julia who started (and is at the helm) of  WOYWW.

I've just read Jennies post re her desk each week, we seem to have very similar desks and both work on the push it back, pile it high, why have one ink pad out when 15 will do. So like her I will try not to ramble as my desk always looks much the same as well - a mess.... but a creative mess!

So here is my desk and also my WOYWW's anniversary present. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong and I am not happy with it, so don't feel you have to post pleasantries about it - just 'what a load of tat' will suffice...




















(PS.... I added an Owl charm as I love owls, we have a barn owl that flys over most evenings - and to give you a rest from Chickens)

  40. Yes it is a load of old tat but I really like the colours and the corset lacing up the back! Had a quick scroll down to catch up and saw the chickens, well done you (and yours) for taking them in and I'm with you all the way on only buy free range, we get organic free range and I'd love my own chooks someday too!! And yes, I was back in gold Ole Blighty for the last three weeks, arrived back in America-ville on Monday.
