woyww #164, some different angles and a sunny trio of treasures.

well it is that great midweek time
where courtesy of Julia, our hostess
we hop around blogland to see the crafty spaces, places and people
if you want to join in all the midweek fun, hop across here .
so here are some different angles of my crafty space:

you can just see bagpuss clinging to the top of a pot..
my butterfly lights...
and the fab tag ..i had as part or our tag swap
from the lovely and talented Mel
her work can be found here

then there is a storage unit waiting for decoration
my fab spinners!
and a lovely Indian piece, that has been attached to the back of the door
love all those colours and textures...

and then
because the sun is shining...
at last...
.here is my trio of sunny treasures.....
who quite obviously are NOTon my desk..!
but had some much fun yesterday i could not resist adding their smiley faces:

even when the sun is not shining they brighten my day !

have a fun and inky day

  21. All those tags look very inspirational. And the paddling pool is out - don't think ours has seen the light of day for a couple of years due to the weather. Of course the kids are at a sports club this week, but I could surprise them with it when they get home!

  25. Morning Trace. Thanks for popping by - The rock pool is finished and posted. I was so happy the water worked as I definitely did not have a plan B!! I wonder how you are going to decorate your drawers? I love the hanging that is next to them - a definite contrast of styles at the moment!! Minimalist meets Bollywood glamour! Great summer photo. Kids, Sunshine and Water - Happy days. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 39

  26. I could marry your tags and have their babies, they are so lovely.

    And your children? Divine!

    Lovely to have some sun isn't it? I'm lucky that the beach is at the bottom of my road.

  53. Thanks for stopping by this week Tracey, I’m so late getting round to everyone again but better late than never!

    Your room is looking great this week. I love your butterfly lights, I bet they look great when they are lit. I also love the way you have all the little hooks under your shelving so that you have your projects up. Mine get tucked away in a drawer or box but it’s much nicer to have them out on show.

    Happy Crafting!


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave me a comment..it means a lot..hope you like what you see. Trace x
