What's on My Holiday Workdesk Wednesday?


Hello Everyone,

Greetings from lovely Harrogate! At last - the long awaited holiday is in full swing. Although we opted for a more scaled down break and are taking things easy compared to the original plan, we are enjoying a plush apartment, some wonderful sunny days, great shops, awesome houses and lots of good old Yorkshire tea and cake. I have already scoured the length and breadth of Harrogate and York trying to sniff out the faintest whiff of a craft store. I am already well set up with Art from the Heart with a Printers Tray workshop on Friday. Unfortunately Dyan (owner of AFTH) has been taken rather ill and into hospital with a nasty virus - so no wooden purse & tags or Melt Art workshop. But seeing as I was also lying on a similar bed very recently, I fully understand. Wishing her well.

So no piccys of my creations yet, but a little pot of gold I wanted to share...I found some really great vintage cigarette card photos at a flea market - just look at those faces and eyes...there's no such thing as too much glamour.
Also added a few more cards to my postcard collection. It can be the image, the colours, or the mood that grabs me...hope they will inspire you too. And just one more stamp from Tin Can Mail. There's no such thing as too many stamps...! So today is short and sweet but couldn't go without my WOYWW. Enjoy all the desks, stashes and ramblings. Over and out.

I was quite taken by surprise when I saw the car stamp as I have a couple of photos of my Mom and a couple of her sisters along side their car, pretty much the same year and make of this car. Have a happy holiday

Scaled down or not, it sounds like you are having an awesome holiday. Hope you'll share some photos upon your return. Sorry I'm late visiting, but I contracted a computer virus on Wednesday. It's still not fixed, but I now I'm not infecting anyone. Happy belated WOYWW.
