woyww - tidy up

A clean desk and new storage containers all because of a spilled cup of tea.  Much happier now that I can see what I have in the containers at the back of my desk. Originally I used recycled cardboard boxes but the cup of tea sent them all into the recycle bin for good. No project today as the mail arrived.
3 lovely ATC's a "quilted hug" from Annie, a delish cake from Twiglet and 5 Candles from LLJ.  Thank you ladies they are very special.  They were all made by fabric loving woyww's who can do just about anything with needle and thread.

Final pic is of the lovely orchid that flowers for me without fail every year.
Hope to slowly visit lots of desks this week if all goes well with the link.


  1. Thank you so much for your fab ATC. Just my fav colours too. I love your orchid.....I have one on my kitchen window that's looking rather do you do it?

  2. Hope the spilled tea didn't do any permanent damage. And plastic containers do work well in the long run. A lunch after school hols would be good (when are they?).
    You've reminded me I must look to see if my orchid is flowering. It's hidden in an overgrown corner of the garden :)

  3. OK, I'm not laughing AT you, but with you. Now you know why I use a mug with a LID when I enter my craft area. It also keeps paint brushes in the proper water and out of the coffee or tea. I really LIKE your new setup.

    And thanks again for spoiling me. Bleubeard was thrilled, too.

  4. Oooh, spilled tea and crafting - not a good combination! I shudder to think what would happen if I did the same....cos tea is an absolute bu**&r to get out of fabric.....
    Yay for happy mail - so glad to see your beautiful ATCs...but then again, thank you so much for the lovely one you sent to me, which really reflected your crafty passions! It's a simple thing, but one that is just joyous to receive :-)
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  5. Your workspace has such a charm and warm feel to i, with the framed artwork and the vintage shadow box. I love your orchid too, and wish we could grow them here too. Blessings!

  6. Glad that the tea didn't cause too much damage! Some lovely atc's there, and a super orchid. Have a lovely week, Chris # 10

  7. Annie and Jo have been busy little bee's, everyone seems to have their ATC's on the desk today.
    Liking the new storage {im a sucker for all types of storage, it's a weakness} lol
    Thanks for already visiting me.

  8. Hi Sandra de,

    Lovely ATCs! Your desk looks nice and tidy and waiting for action! I've moved a table into my bedroom to have a "permanent" workdesk and can't wait to show it off one of these Wednesdays. I have friends coming Saturday to help me move stuff from my storage unit to my home. Needless to say the house will be a wreck for a while.......

    Thanks for your visit already. I'm hoping to at least get most of my visiting done today and tomorrow!

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (39)

  9. I dread the day I finally knock my coffee over (I did already once into my bag of wrapping papers and tissue after xmas already lol) but your desk looks so nice and tidy and you won't have to worry with those plastic containers :)
    thanks for the visit
    hugs Nikki 45
    GREAT ATCs you have too

  10. Why does spilt tea always seem so much more than was originally in the mug, lol. Your new containers look great. Love your happy mail. Mine is winging it's way hopefully.
    Hugs Lisax

  11. Happy WOYWW! Good thing the tea spilled on boxes that were replaceable and not on those lovely ATCs! Those are beautiful orchids!
    Blessings and hugs,

  12. Gosh what a tidy desk! Come on get messing it up again quick lol! I can't cope with so much
    Happy crafting, Angela x

  13. It's Friday and I've received your package. I was delighted with the sparkle and splats, and the water color floral is lovely. Frightfully expensive to post I see. Thank you. This is the first time I've been involved in a swap and it's so great getting mail from down under. There was no late mark on the pkg and I'm curious about how long it took to get here. When you put it in the seems pretty quick.
    Be well Carole

  14. great post. Love the ATC's and your desk looks awesome! I haven't been able to post on Wednesdays for a while and I have missed it! Sorry I am so late getting around! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #62

  15. Sorry I am getting around so late this week, with mr linky going on a siesta then the queens birthday long weekend I have been working extra hours. I do hope you forgive me. Beautiful orchid shot and I love all those atc's you have received we do have a wonderful bunch of deskers with big hearts.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda
    Belated WOYWW greetings

  16. I guess sometimes spilling tea can be a good thing? Glad it didn't ruin anything irreplaceable. Thanks for sharing the ATC' seeing all the different ones. Thanks for your visit already. #43 Kyla @ Faerie Wings and Scrapbook Things
