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!!
xoxo

    Oh my, your ATC is awesome!! It is so detailed - I love the circle with all the world flags with tiny woywws around the circumference. The whole ATC is filled with treasure.
    And then you also do simple yet exquisite with the beautiful shell and pearls, absolutely gorgeous. How can a girl choose between them?? Oh, all right, I'll just have to love them equally....*grin*

  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.

  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!
