hi ladies, another wednesday yet again, hope you all had great week. 

I have sorted out my blogging problems...woohoo!!!!!!
I use firefox as my browser, so I switched over to the dreadful explorer..still then download google chrome, and eh voile I can now visit you all and leave comments!

here is my messy desk this week, and its a mess I am not ashamed of :)  tim products everywhere,  happy days! I haven't a clue what I am making, I just started playing with grunge and a board, so we will see what comes of it :)  

ok for those who dont like the whole twilight thing, look away now!  as you know I am addicted and dont want to be cured, I have a new addition to my posters!  wonder what I am going to do when I need a breaking dawn poster, I have no more wall space left......yikes!......aint he lovely :)

righto I have so much to do today, wish I didn't, but the food shopping fairies are on strike so I have to face tescos alone today :(...............and the bank................and the post office............doctors............blah!!!!!!!!
 but when I get home this evening I will be pouring a glass of red and will be swinging by all your lovely spaces!  hugs m xx

I forgot to share

my new books! sometimes this auld head does not work!  philip came home from work last week with these as a surprise, a beautiful copy of alice in wonderland and through the looking glass, complete with the beautiful tenniel colour illustrations, to say I LOVE this book is an understatement, it was my all time favorite when I was little, reading it over and over again, I only wish my mother didnt get rid of it when she cleared the attic out before moving, breaks my heart that my old loved copy is out there somewhere, would love to have it so much.  

and if that wasn't enough of a surprise seeing alice.... I pulled out this book from the waterstones paper bag too............

needless to say the man did good, he knows me so well, thank you baby! 

hope you are all having a good friday, hugs m xx

hope you all have a happy thursday, hugs m xx

altered frame

this frame was rescued from my mother in law's charity shop bag, she was green, so I gave her a couple of layers of white paint, and created a little piece using another "gorjuss" girl......I am addicted.....I did tell you all that!  thanks for looking, hugs m xx
