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

Ooh, your cute little white things are gorgeous, just the sort of things I'd buy - I would put a bottle brush tree and some twinkly snow on one of them - it would look fab. I love vintage hankies too - I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with all this lovely stash! Have a great week,

that tree is so cool. I don't know what the little white things are either but, candle holders sound fun. :) ~Stacy #58

Kim said...

Mistle Toes!!! Love it!! Have fun with your tree, and have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

Beth Sinn said...

I too am trying to "shop my stash" for all things I am creating right now. BUT it just never works out. You end up needing to go shopping for that one thing you know you don't have and BOOM your arms are full and you are barely able to get out or the stores alive! Especially at thrift stores!
Thanks for sharing!

Love the Mistle Ties!! Lol, have fun using those....wonder what you're going to do with them?! I'm glad you're going to bling up your project...you can never have too much sparkle, in my opinion :-)
Hugs, LLJ 25 xx

Pat Taviss said...

I agree. the treasure hunt for supplies is one third of the fun.

I love thrift shops too. In the UK they are called charity shops as the staff are volunteers and the proceeds go to that particular charity.
I smiled at your 'mistle toes'. Are they tags for socks perhaps?
Thanks for sharing,
Have a great week,
Lisca#24

I'm thinking that the labels might be for socks?? I love a bit of charity shop rummaging, you never know what you are going to find.

Have a productive week

I'm loveing the tree still, and very relieved tha tyou're using the little standas for candles, couldn't bear to think of you baking teeny tiny christmas cakes!!

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Thank you for your visit, Kay! I like your method of visiting everyone that ends with the same number as you. I try to visit as many desks as I can, but sometimes there just isn't enough time! I love visiting thrift stores too - you never know what you gonna find! Enjoy your thanksgiving! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #21

fairy thoughts said...

How do you mistle toes then? I'd be interested to see that.
I love thrift shops too, we even found a couple of great ones in Colorado when we were there recently, it's a dirty job ... But someone has to do it๐Ÿ˜€

Angela Radford said...

Sorry I'm late (for me that is) our connection's been down. I am doing my best to catch up. A nap sounds like a great idea to me, hope you are having a nice time.
They have decided to have Black Friday here too and the town was like crazy today, pleased to be back home.
Happy crafting and napping Lol!, Angela x

Beth P said...
