WOYWW 3rd Anniversary!!

Drum roll...........
Happy Anniversary Julia
and WOYWW Bloggers !!

Join the celebrations here!  http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

I cannot hardly wait to see all the wonderful work and workdesks out there this week!!  Is it time, is it time??
I'm squirming in my chair!!!!!

Until then here is my boring old desk.  And, it is tidy, by golly!!!
 YES!  That surely is a glass of wine you see there!  We're celebrating remember!!!  (at least I am!)
The shell.  Well, I was visiting one of my fav blogs http://mysalvagedtreasures.blogspot.com/ where Betsy posted some altered abalone shells.  They are gorgeous!  I didn't have an abalone shell so I grabbed a plain ol' shell, painted it with my Mica watercolors, dried it, stuck some pearls on and five minutes later...  Still playing with it and all will have to be glued on permanently. 

I will try not to be so darn late getting around this week!  I appreciate all of you so much!!


  1. So neat! Love your shell! Arty #17

  2. Hi Kathryn, wonderful treasures on your desk! You're below my name for the ATC swap so will be emailing you for your address next. Have a wonderful week!!

  3. I love the contrast of the Celebration banner and the neutral tones of your desk. Thanks for the visit, too.

  4. Hi Kathryn, love your ATC!! Love the shell too, clever lady doing it up like that. I have done a few extra ATCs and would love to send one to you.

  30. ...loVe your celebratory ATC with all the flags of the word, very clever...gorgeous little pearl shell, so pretty...Mel :)
    Sorry it's taken a while to reply Kathryn on Tuesday I opened a blog I visit every day & a virus was attached to it! my computer came back a few hours ago so a lot of catching up...thankyou for visiting & liking my blog enough to follow me...it'll be a joy to follow you :)

  31. Wow Kathryn, this is gorgeous. How creative of you to paint it when you didn't have a colorful abalone shell. Love the pearls! Thanks so much for the mention, so glad you like my jeweled shells.

  32. Lovely blingy desk this week - what a fab idea to paint the shell to look like abalone!
    Happy Blogaversary - Hugs, Neet #15 xx (late because she had a load of visitors yesterday)

  33. Love the shell! I think it is great how you painted up a regular shell to make it look like a fancy abalone one. Pearls and shells go so well together. Great bits and bobs on your desk. Love your WOYWW piece too-is that your ATC?! That is fabulous and I love all the dimension!

  34. Really like your shell, oh and that celebration banner/sign looks fantastic.

    Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW
