What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday week 153

Hello, hello, want to see what's on my desk today?

This lot arrived in the post today from the lovely
Cindy from America.
We did a one to one Spring/Bird charm swap
(using a game piece) and as well as her bird charm,
she sent another cityscape charm and two stamp sets! 
How lucky am I!
Thank you so much Cindy, you're the best!

I also received this in the post today

This came from Jo in Canada and is a page for my
Shabby Chic mini book - for April the theme was 'Wings'.
It's so arty, I love it! 

I had another packet in the post too (what a great post day!)

These were from QVC - Lindsay Mason stamps,
I couldn't resist these images when I saw them on TV
last week.

I've been shopping this morning and a new shop has
opened in the local shopping mall called
As more and more shops are closing in the high streets thesedays, 
it's lovely to have something new and different to look around.
The shop was really busy and I hope it does well.

Here's what I bought in there

The hand is made from clay and covered in black flock fabric
 It was only £2 and will be great for photographing small items on.
The pack of beads I really didn't need, but as they were stored
in eight little glass bottles, I couldn't resist them (£3)!
The harlequin square is a ceramic coaster tile - which I thought would
look nice in my craft room and could be used with my heat gun
to protect my table (£1).
Towards the back the four coloured dishes are plastic 'Desk Pots'
and they sit on their own plastic base tray.  I don't know what I'm 
going to use them for yet, but they were only £2! 
The red circle is a pack of four 'twist off' anti slip mats
(I've been looking for something like these for a while - 
some of my Dylusion paint pots are a bit clogged around the rim
 and are really difficult to open.)
 These twist offs also have a great texture to them
 so great for dipping in paint and making a mess! (£1).
Finally, there's a pack of 12 sheets of Origami paper (£1).

Well that's about it for me.
I haven't got any work in progress to show at the moment,
although I do have a list of family birthday cards to make,
so maybe I can use some of my new purchases for them.

If you'd like to see what's on other desks -
hop on over to Julia's blog
you won't be disappointed I promise!

Thanks for coming to see mine this week :)

Who has been on a spending spree then!!! Those twisty mat thingy's look good. We have a Tiger shop in the nearest big town to us. Must make a point of going in there. I got a lot of the presssies in there to put in the g. childrens advent calendars last year. Nothing over £2 which was good. Thanks for your comment on Wrapper. Poor old Wimpy doesn't know what to do with himself. email coming your way. Hugs Mrs A.
