Workdesk Wednesday 100

Well it's not so much what is on my desk today but what can you see from my desk!
This morning I was busy finishing off an item on my desk that needed to to be posted later on today (should have been finished Saturday, running very late) so as it is for a swap it is under wraps. Also rather large and bulky so no room for anything else on there.

So in the grand old tradition of the seaside landlady this is the view you get if you stand on my craft desk, hang out the window at a 45 degree angle with 'The Doc' holding my ankles (or not) and take a photo to send home. A few years ago The Doc asked if I would make him circle at the bottom of the garden for a table and chairs to go on as the sun finishes up down in that corner. This is what I created.


But then I sort of got a bit carried away and carried up the rest of the garden with a stream stepping stones and a further circle!!


Iv'e been to my next art class and we did Delphiniums this time. It is still drying out so has been on an easel on the table in the garden in the sun. I think I'm begining to get the hang of this paint
job now.


Monkey is still AWOL so there is no desk from him either. Where the devil can he be. When he does turn up the only thing he is gonner be swinging from is my desk lamp with a ball and chain!
If you want to see some proper desks then pop on over to Julia's blog where you will find over 125 desks this week to drool over. See you there.

  7. Mrs. A., your garden looks so lovely and serene; would love to have tea there and gather my thoughts. Jam would love it if we had a garden here but he's patient and will wait. I love your painting - you are amazing! Jam even told me so too but I already knew that! I know your visit with Sweet Cheeks and Fluff (and VUH) was fun filled. So glad you stopped by my blog and checked out the vid. :-) I LOVE Jam! ;)
