WOYWW 285? Or Maybe 286? WOW!

Hello everyone!  Holy moly, two weeks in a row!   I'm joining the party that is called What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Our lovely hostess is Julia at Stamping Ground.  People from around the world join in and show their desks and projects.  

Not much new on my table.  I decided the buttons I was going to make into ornaments are just too drab.  I mean, really, the tree just screams glitter and all things sparkly.

I went to the thrift store and found some fun items.  I should just stay away.... it's an unfortunate thing when you are trying to clean out.   Part of the fun is the hunt - and finding things you know you can use somehow......
On my desk you will see the Christmas tree and my finds from the thrift store.  Some vintage hankies, a great crocheted thingie, lined paper, brand new erasers and four cute little white things.  Not exactly sure what they are but I'm planning to use them for candles.  Something else is a sheet that I'm going to make labels out of and attach to something - can you guess?  Here's a close up.
As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.  I think I managed all my visits last week, although it took through the weekend to do so.

Peace,
Kay

Friday Smiles - Breakfast with a Friend

Hello everyone!  I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time.   If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.

This is my friend, Alyce.  Yes, she spells her name with a y instead of an i!
We met for breakfast recently and had a blast.  We always enjoy eachother's company.  She's a great, creative spirit and a friend that I can always count on.
Guess I was feeling silly.

What about you?  What made you smile this week?

Peace,
Kay

WOYWW 285 -- Oh Christmas Tree

Hello everyone, I'm back!!!   Finally joining in the WOYWW madness.  Our lovely hostess is Julia at Stamping Ground.  People from around the world join in and show their desks and projects.  

Not much action going on here.  I did well at the arts and crafts fair.  One of the things I had for sale are cute little ornaments I made using dyed clothes pins.  How cute is this Christmas tree!   I have some more bits to make a few more ornaments.
Here's a couple of close ups of the ornaments.
They all have glitter.  It really stands out in the photo below.
I honestly would have thought this little tree would be a bit, well, gaudy, but I love it!!  If there's an after Christmas sale and there's some available I'm going to buy a few.  Make them cutesy and sell them next year!  One woman actually tried to buy it!!


As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.  Please be patient as it sometimes takes me through the weekend to get done!

PS.  I have some new followers - thank you for taking the time to join in the fun!  

Peace,
Kay

First Fire of 2014

Yep, it's that time of year.  The temperature has dropped and the doggies are happy snoozing in the house.  As for me, I was cuddled up next to this!
I just love putting some logs on the fire and watching the flames.  I have a screen that goes in front of the fireplace but I moved it to get a better photo.

All I need now is more wood!

Peace,
Kay
