HAPPY WEDNESDAY


It's so nice to be back with the WOYWW crowd again after our holiday - which is what you find me scrapping here, trying to capture the memories of our favourite place. And here's a closer view if like me you're nosey and want to see more.

Yes I DID buy all sorts of stash goodies in the USA, including a new camera, and now that the lead I needed has arrived I will be uploading the photo I took of it all! Oh happy days, all I have to do now is find homes for everything. The one thing I really REALLY want to show you is THIS!!

You probably already know my great love for all things pink and spotty, and a few months back I managed to buy (second hand) the trolley and bag which match the above, but had looked everywhere for the round and round tote thingy (what ARE they called anyway?). Having discovered that this is a discontinued colourway I had given up hope, so imagine my delight when browsing the aisles of KMart I came across this!! Embarrassed my dearly beloved by snatching it up and doing a happy dance - I think he got the impression that I was pleased about something. So now it is sitting on my desk looking gorgeous and this weekend I'll be off to the crop with my Matching Luggage!! Obviously I don't care about material things like this at all ..... but if you want to see more go on over to Julia's Place where other desks await. I apologise in advance that I really won't be able to leave comments on more than about 40 desks, after which I'm afraid I wilt ... so am planning to drop in on various WOYWWers at random. This really isn't just a pathetic excuse for not bothering - I suffer from Fibromyalgia and can't concentrate very well or sit at the pooter for too long.

I can imagine the feeling as you spotted your tote...and the photos will make some great LO's.

I get round to about 40 on the first day and then pop in, on and off during the next couple of days... it can feel daunting some weeks but then I have little else to do when my Mojo goes walkabout.lol.

LadyBug said...

I know just what you meana nd how you felt when you found the tote you had been looking for! I bet you'll be the belle of the crop with all your matching luggage.

Lovely tote and I would have done a dance. DH is used to it by now. If I tried to show everything in my room we would be here 6 months waiting for it all to upload to blogger.I've been buying again but done it from the settee and QVC e mail me to let me know they're on their way. Ain't life wonderful? Hugs BettyXXX

You've made me laugh twice today. Once at your people watching/eavesdropping comment in your profile (um - yeah so obviously am guilty of the same!)And at the image of you dancing madly in the aisles of KMart :P

BTW - don't worry - I never get round more than 50 desks before I am unceremoniously booted off my own pc, or have to do real life stuff (yah, boo, sucks!) or I have been getting headaches and my back plays up a LOT lately if I spend to much time at the pc.

Diana said...

Lucky you to get some stash shopping in on your USA holiday. Is the stuff better, different, cheaper?
Sorry I'm so late! The time has just flown... .
Thanks for coming by my little blog too.

Thank you for the comment, love the matching bag, I love polka dot!

Candace said...

Love the new tote, must admit I treated myself to some new crafting luggage last week. Was sick of trying to make things fit and quite frankly they didn't so ended up going to crops looking like the local bag lady!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, sorry bit late this week

Hugs Can x
