What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, Week 93

I'm getting later and later in showing what's on my workdesk -
at least it is still Wednesday, albeit evening now!

Jeans - mine, but with the leg all cut up!
They were my old faithfuls, but unfortunately I had worn them out
(I won't share whereabouts!)
I've been cutting circle shapes from them to make some boobs -
yes, boobs!  If you're intrigued have a look at my earlier post here.
I've been laughing at the first few comments I received.

What else is on my desk?
Here's a close up look.

Some buttons I bought today from the Oxfam shop.
Look at the size of the two at the bottom,
they must be the biggest buttons I've ever seen!
I shall enjoy sorting them all into colours and placing with others
in my button box  (oh yes, little things, please little minds -
mine must be tiny - lol)

What else is on the desk?

Admittedly it doesn't look much now, but it will transform
into an altered domino art doll (yes, really).
The wooden part is from a little bottle of lavender essence
and I'm kicking myself for not glueing it higher up to make a neck!
I may try to prise it off and re-attach.
It will be for a Spring Domino swap on Flickr which closes
on 30th April so there's still plenty of time to sign up
if you're interested in joining.

That's about it really - if you looked at my desk last week, you'd
have seen a canvas I'd started with some of my doodling from the
OWOH event - well, it's finished now and if you're interested you can
see it here.

I'm linking this up to over 150 other desks on Julia's blog
and this week I'm going to try to get around to looking
at as many others desk as I can!

Thanks for looking at mine!

Love the buttons, I'm very much a button lover.
The doll looks interesting. I am trying to avoid the temptation to try making art dols, I dabble in enough things!

Your boobs are amazing!! What a great idea, I might have a go at my own boobs too! I see you are a fan of Holly Hobbie too (the tin or is it Betsy Clark - both of which I love and collect) they're so cute. Well done, hope you raise lots and lots for such a worthy cause.

How many times are people going to tell you they like your boobs? Well, here's another one. What a fabulous job you have made of them and such a worthwhile cause too. Well done you.

I'm having a really busy week but am quickly dropping by to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the chance to win the last of our weekly draws before the BIG one over in our blog shop. Pop over and join in the fun. Good luck.

Beautiful buttons, some of them look really old too, they reminded me of the tin of buttons I got from my nan especially those mother of pearl looking ones! Also, fabby boobs and what a great idea to raise money and awareness! x

I love the buttons and today when I cleaned out the old / outgrown clothes so I cut away all the buttons ... they can be used :) It's so nice to see other people's scrapbooking room.

Nearly missed this post!!!
Love your selection of buttons. My local charity shop sells them for
2p each but dosn't have as nice a selection as these. Had to go and buy a box of Dominos for the swap as Hubby wouldn't let me use any of his ( the meany) but they are quite small compared to your ivory one. Off now to see what Monkey has been doing in my absense. Hugs Mrs A.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well I'm late! Love the idea of the domino doll - bet you did prise it off..that sort of thing just sits at the back of your mind otherwise! I know about the jeans too - never thought to rescue them for boobs though!!

Holly E. said...

Well your boob looks great! And those buttons.... I love buttons in piles like that all different shapes and sizes! Thanks for stopping by my desk, sorry I'm late making my way around!
