Another week has flown by and here we are revealing our crafty WOYWW desks to all who care to look!

I had a lazy, sporty weekend - watching not participating I hasten to add!!

So not a lot of crafty activity to show today.
In the front you can see some pretty vintage collars that I found at the car boot sale. I don't know what I shall do with them but I am sure I will think of something.
Just behind them is a lovely little felt pen picture that Alex made to go with the handmade bracelet.
It was his "Thank you" for making his camouflage gear for his room.
I love it - thank you Alex!

The green woolly piece is a felted background that I am hoping to dumf later today.

I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovely summer weather.
A big hello and Happy 50th to Julia - hope you are enjoying all your celebrations!

Thanks for calling by.
Have a great week.

x Jo

I need to go to one of those car boot sales that you go to and find that gorgeous stuff. Love those collars which reminds me I have two somewhere from aunty years ago. Must show them to you some time.
Great background already done for your dumfing, now I wonder what you are putting on it? Will wait and see,

Lovely - dumfing - I'm a fan of your dumfing.... lol

Your comment did appear on my blog Jo - I wonder if I was doing my update at the end when you were commenting - because I was in edit in blogger - maybe it got silly and didn't show your comment :( unless your comment about your comment meant that you had done another comment and that was the one that had disappeared - no, I didn't see that one if that was the case - but still, it could be my fault if I was in edit mode at the time.... sorry!!!

Thank you so much - I did get your lovely ATC - it's adorable... I really thought I'd mentioned and thanked you - maybe I imagined that because of the pain and the oramorph... all round I'm not doing too well am I? but still smiling :)

Big hugs and thank you so much again - yours will be with you probably nearer the 10th anniversary... not great at my time management at the moment!!!

Love those collars, I would use them as signatures in an altered book and ink them up. What a splendid find, thanks for sharing.

Belated happy WOYWW, Jo! oh, I love any kind of sale where I can find vintage stuff like those collars. But I'm cleaning my our attic these days and finding stuff I still haven't used after years! Oh well, I still love them!
