WOYWW 163......Bunting! & Celebration Cards!...oh and Tea!

The new desk is great I am getting loads more done & can have a few diffident projects on the go with more space! Been making loads of bunting by using up my scraps on some pre cut pennants that came free with a Hunkydory kit a while back.

This storage desk carousel was a bargain from the Craft Superstore. They was £45 but now down to £26 in the sale, just had to do some shuffling on the desk before could live with it ;)

Here I was trying out the new Pearl Elegance Kit from Hunkydory. There are a few weddings this year I have been invited to and this kit just fits the bill to make some beautiful cards & keepsakes.

After all that I will now drink my tea & eat my Date & Walnut Cake I made yesterday, really getting back into backing again of late, loving my Scones!!! Hope you are all having a good snoopathon to day as brought to us by Julia our leader :) razz over to her blog & get the lo down on what we are all going on about, its one of the biggest crafty blog hops on the net!!!! Go on I dare you to join in...

Dont be shy come & join in and show us your Workdesk on a Wednesday, its that easy!

Hope you all have a great snoop & are keeping well & warm, last thing I need, new medication I have to take are making me feel like and extra in Dante's Inferno! I cant stand being warm either! Have a great creative week!

Hi Lavinia happy woyww. I keep seeing those desk carousels on peoples' desks, they're very popular aren't they and look so good.

The card collection is gorgeous, can see you've put in a lot of work of those

Your cake reminded me that I haven't cooked anything like that for ages, the one I make is Banana and Date Loaf - very yummy also.
Cheers from Elaine #23

Oh I love your bunting. Such a good idea for scraps. Might have to lift that idea!!

Ok I am an avid tea drinker and thinkin' I might have to join you for tea and scones. The bread looks very yummy.

Your cards you made are so beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lavinia,

That carousel is great - I've seen one like it at Michael's and if I had a full time designated workspace I'd pick it up in a heartbeat!

It looks like you've been busy with bunting and cards! Good for you.

Still need to mail your package..... so sorry.

Lavinia, I can't believe you haven't yet had any comments on this lovely post! Your creative space is beautiful - love your little (Ikea?) drawers, and those carousels are gorgeous, aren't they. I hankered after one for a while but a) too expensive and b) not enough room for one, and in the end I got a little spotty fabric one for £3 at last year's village fete (brand new with label still on) and by accident put it on my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and hey presto, instant revolving base lol!

As for your tea tray, how absolutely lovely. Bone china, beautiful tea service. Home made cake. What more could a girl want? So beautifully laid out, too!

Beautiful cards, too.

Happy WOYWW,

Hi Lavinia,
The bunting is interesting. Whilst we do have plain little flags of this shape at fair grounds, they are poor things by comparison with your flamboyant versions. I think it's a very English thing perhaps?
I am very impressed with the carousel. Making Memories had one available here ages ago and I regret not getting one. My red buckets go part way to doing the same job.
Hope the medication doesn't engulf you and gives some relief.
