WOYWW 68

Not much happening on my desk today but this is on my dining room table:

Just need to paint the stalk, distress and decorate it now!  The tags are just soaking up the adirondack colour wash I used (can't waste anything me!) so I don't know what I will use those for yet.

But also I have a confession which is:

These are the bags I took to my crop on Sunday (didn't do a thing whilst there!) and they are still here in my dining room, am now rather ashamed of my laziness and am going to put them away!  That big bag of white in the background is a load of tulle I bought whilst on holiday for 50p!  bargain eh!  and no, I didn't take that to the crop but it's there because I made the Christmas house in my dining room (post is below for those that are interested in what I did with the dog house last week!).

Thanks for following me Bernice, it was nice to catch up with you on Sunday - have you seen I have put a countdown thing to our date with Tim on my blog? (I don't like it so might have to write my own when I get 5 mins!).

Thanks for looking - if you want to come and join in the fun at seeing a group of tidy/messy desks then pop over to Julias.

That pumpkin is too funny. And you'll use the tags and be so thankful you didn't waste a bit of color. Not sure what screen wash is, but it's a great color and shading. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

I thought it was a real pumpkin when I first loaded your page. But how fab to have one that you can use year after year. Love it.
Don't worry about the crop stuff hanging about - think we all have times like that. Thinking of myself at the moment I wonder when I will get my stuff put away from two weeks ago!!! EEEK!

I love the pumpkin - well done, great and probably a lot of time. Having said that, I think the tags are going to turn out a triumph!Unpacking crop bags? Usually the night before the next crop!
