Hello deskhoppers, it's wednesday again and time for our 'snoop fest' where we look at other people's desks to see what they are up to. (If you have no idea what I am talking about, go visit Julia's blog where it is all explained: http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/ )
Thank you all of you who have visited me last week. If you want to see the final result of the scrapbook page I was doing, I've posted it on the previous blog page.
So here's my desk.
I've started to do a new layout. It's got 4 photos of my dad from 1955 that I scanned. My mum gave me a whole pack of stuff of my dad's from WW2. He was picked up and taken to Germany to do forced labour. He wrote a note to my mum to say he was OK when he was transported in the cattle train. It was smuggled out and now I have it! There are pictures of the lager he was in and German ration cards. Also registration cards from the Allied Forces when he was liberated eventually. Very interesting stuff. I will write a separate blog about that soon.
You can see my red tin with 'distress stuff'. I only have a few ink pads but I've recently bought a mini set (see further down). The thing that says: Travel-lite is a day light lamp. I suffer from SAD syndrome which means I get depressed if I don't get enough sun or even day light, so on days that I don't go out I sit in front of this lamp (only in the morning as it sets one's body clock. If I used it in the evening I would have difficulty sleeping).
I mentioned new stash, well, here it is:
A bottle of crackle paint, a spray can of fixative, a pipette, chalkboard paint and the above mentioned mini-set of distress ink. This came from a Spanish website 'Mi Tienda De Arte'. They deliver the next day. Great.
Now for the bed socks:
A friend's mother in Holland made these. I love them! I never thought I'd ever use bed socks but.... it's bliss. (and my hubby doesn't mind). We have continental duck down duvets. They are gorgeously warm and they mold themselves around your body but of course they are not tucked in at the bottom and somehow during the night I get cold feet. Not anymore!
Finally: You might have noticed a different badge on the side column. I have started a new virtual walk. (Walking4fun.com) I've finished the Wonderland trail and now I'm doing the Florida Keys trail which goes from Key West to Key Largo and a bit into Florida too.
Well, thanks for visiting and I'll try and 'do the rounds' in the course of the week and visit as many as I have time for.
Have a good week
