WOYWW #191

Hi all, I am still poking around with a few valentines day cards and trying out a few different techniques with some tags.. I downloaded a wonderful owl calendar and have to cut it up and make a stand for it to go on.  You can find the link to it on the { left of my blog if you would like one they are just amazing..
So here is my desk..

We had the Australia day weekend just last weekend the 26th of January and we have a festival of sails locally, where there is lots of yachts and yacht races on Corio bay.. There is markets and lots of food stalls, such a fun day we always go for a wander around.   Thought some of you might like some sunshine as it looks so cold and snowy in a lot of your pictures. 
 Love these old sail boats..

Helicopter rides

Just some of the yachts

Water ski show was excellent 

So hope you are all well and liked my bit of sunshine.. 
Hop on over to have a peek around desks at Julia's.  Make sure you have a cuppa ready before you venture into the wonderful world of Julia's Stamping Ground
Thanks for visiting my blog and all the lovely comments I enjoy reading every one..

Have a great day
Sandy :)

Your desk looks nice and productive - haven't had time to get my head round Valentine's yet - after last year's effort I'm going to have to pull all the stops out for my hubby this year!
