WOYWW #204

I have been making owls for some cards, so just piecing them altogether. Finished my junk journal that is the purple book on my desk.  My friend gave me this very cool book has no year on it but must be the 50's or 60's.. Has all the plans inside of how to make all the furniture.  I will not be ripping this up to add to my collection of mixed media stuff.. I will just copy it on the printer, so many cool pages to use, lots of diagrams and plans. The plans for the outside crib for a baby so it can get fresh air without flies and bugs lol classic.. 
Update on the vegies, my other workdesk..
We picked the pumpkins yay!! we had a very successful crop of butternut pumpkins.  There is 41 in this Wheelbarrow, we had 49 altogether and I have already distributed 6 batches of pumpkin soup.. Some cooling in the pot at the moment, I get very popular when the pumpkins are ready.. I freeze in batches and give away to friends and family as they call in. 

Its no 204 this week for WOYWW . Julia from Stamping ground gets us all together every Wednesday to have a look at desks from all over the world.. Grab a cuppa and take a browse..
Have a great day
Sandy :)

  7. I'm totally unsurprised by your pumpkin popularity...I paid £1.95 per kilo for a small one last week!! I do love em though. Love your junk journal. although it so doesn't say 'junk' to me. Cool book as you say, the idea f an outside crib...very high end babies then...pretty sure a pram would have done even then!!

  8. that book is excellent! happy woyww jenx

  9. I can alrady taste the soup - delicious! That book is wonderful - classic stuff.
    Have a great, autumn, week.
