new goodies, mail art--What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #216

 (WOYWWers, I put in the wrong link 
for week 218--
find that desk HERE!)

I am in the midst of a serious art room clean out.  So why then is there a
new stash of goodies on my desk?

Well, it was all on sale.  That's my only defense.  The pompoms and colored lace
in the middle, bought that at an Amish fabric store in Jamesport, MO (largest
colony of Amish west of the Mississippi River.)

The mail art is from Krisha--THANK YOU, Krisha!  I've said this before, and
I'm gonna say it again--that stamp right there in the middle, every time I see it,
it makes me think "Downton Abbey."

Do you see it?

Thank you Julia for hosting yet another What's on Your Workdesk, Wednesday.
I think I visited everyone who dropped in last week--if not, I plan on at least
stopping by to say hi to all my bloggy friends from last week, and anyone who
comes by this week, as well.  Sometimes I can't find links for google plus people?
What's up with that?

Happy WOYWW!

:)

I just don't get Google+!! Anyway, love your buys! Have fun visiting- I used to be able to visit most if not all WOYWWers, but it's just too many now! patsy

Those sales they always get us lol!! I have a lot of trouble going into a craft/art/scrapbook store and not buying anything, I am addicted...have mercy!! But I have to say it brightens my day to buy art stuff and make beautiful things that bring joy to others :-). Sooo my point is...keep on buying trisha too!! Happy WOYWW

The card is beautiful. I too am guilty, for I can not resist a good sale either. I have the same exact red trim, and I have the same exact bluish/green pom-pom trim. (which I have in like 4 different colors). I bought mine at Donna Downey's studio. I love shopping there. Who am I kidding, I love shopping for art/craft supplies anywhere. Oh, BTW… you got a shout out in my post for WOYWW. :D Yup you sure did!!! Have fun with all your new goodies. (((HUGS)))

How interesting your blog always is, Trisha! I am so fascinated by the Amish - how lovely to have something made by them! It is so hot and humid here in the UK and we're just not used to it, but what we are into is Downton Abbey and - yes - I agree that stamp really evokes that drama! Have a lovely WOYWW. Some other people seem to be having issues with Google Plus too; wonder what's going on? Julie Ann #17

Claire said...

That mail are looks great I loved the stamped in images in the middle I too have that problem with Google plus which sometimes means I miss an odd person when I can't find them on the list

I think there's a law that says money MUST be spent at sales ;)

Happy WOYWW from the bears @#90

glitterandglue said...

It's a law of nature, I reckon, that things just fall into your trolley when they are on sale!
I can never find a way of commenting on google+ either! Must be a fault there, certainly can't be us, now can it?
Have a great week.

Ria Gall said...

you have some great new stash there and no matter how hard we try to tidy up, clear out, down size there will always be sales to tempt us.
That's a lovely card and I see it
Sending hugs on WOYWW and hope you have a great week

Anne said...

I'm on a clear out too, have a box with stamps that I haven't used for a while or don't like anymore plus some bits and bobs. If I don't use them this year then they are OUT! Saw an online sale at the weekend....added tons to my wishlist, sighed and hit that delete button! Gotta put food on the table first...so hubby says!!! Enjoy your new goodies! #87

Monica said...

They do look like Downton Abbey ladies. AWho can resist a sale with such goodies.

Winnie said...

Awesome mailart from Krisha! Love the image. I just watched a BBC special on Mon about the HighClere Castle where Downtown Abbey is filmed. It was so interesting! Love the goodies on your desk waiting to be used! Winnie#82

Hammers said...

Love the mailart...I think the stamp is very Downton Abbey. No sane crafter can resist a sale :) Thanks for swinging by my desk earlier Happy WOYWW. Cx #60

My name is Cindy said...

I don't understand the google+ thing either, it doesn't make any sense to me. If clicking takes me there I have to go back to Julia's list to find them. Anyhow, loving your new stash. Am a complete sucker for a bargain myself and can never walk past the 'sale'box at my local store without having a rummage. Happy WOYWW Cindy #36

Bridget Larsen said...

I agree with Patsy Paterno and Cindy even though I am in google+ but thats why I use the links on Julias page if everyone links it correctly.
Sales is a good excuse to add to our stash

Nan G said...

Fab new stash! Isn't that a gorgeous postcard. She inspired me with it when I saw it on her blog. Have fun with the new stuff! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #50

Danie May said...

I am in constant clean out mode in my craft room...lol. I love all your hoard of pom pom trims can't wait to see what you use it on. And I am loving the wonderful card you received, the stamp does have a touch of Downtown Abbey and I love the background. Happy WOYWW! Danie

Daniella said...

I totally understand! I bought more stuff that I "had to have" but absolutely didn't need because it was on sale last week too. If it makes you happy, the good for you!! They all look wonderful!

peggy apl said...

it's always hard to resist a good sale! that is a lovely stamp and yes it does remind me of downton abbey (oh, you just reminded me how it ended!). i don't get google+ either. so confusing.

Julia Dunnit said...

Mmm, nice pom poms Mrs! I buy that stuff whenever I see it, so a sale would be cause an overflow in my ribbon jar! Seen your name on two or three blogs this WOYWW as a source of inspiration for the writers - thank you for that - WOYWW is the richer for it!

Lucy Edmondson said...

Beautiful card! Yes, definitely Downton Abbey,

Maudieroff Roffey said...

Hi Trisha - love the bobbly "ribbon" would be fun to make a head band for my hair out of some of that!! thanks for popping by - Happy WOYWW - Mxx #4

Queen Lightwell said...

Well, "sale" is the only excuse I need, never say its not a perfectly good one! :) Love the mail art, especially your piece from the last post back...is that a stamp or did you print it on? Love that script. Have a great WOYWW! Deeyll #77

Dianne said...

Hey Trish, thanks for the laugh, my dad was always giving her a hard time cause she couldn't pass a sale.lovely lace from the Amish,they have a stall in the market, love their things. I loooove B&W cards, and she does look like a Downton Abbey beauty, thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend..

Shelly Schmidt said...

Loving your postcard that you rec'd! And yeah on all of the good finds for fibers too! I am not brave enough to post my work desk- will have to clean up a bit, then go from there : ) I have a 6 foot desk and about a foot of workable space...hehehe

Shaz Brooks said...

Love the stamped piece. Its amazing, no matter how much we organise & tidy, we still NEED to buy more stuff. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #70 xx

Michele said...

your work desk looks just fine! and the card from Krisha is awesome! xo

Cathy L. Calamas said...

Absolutely reminds me of Downtown Abbey. I drool over their hats every show! Also, thanks for the wonderful postcard and scripture verse. I placed it on a spot on my desk so I could see it everyday and be reminded.

Regina Hamilton said...

I love when I see a good sale. I really save a lot of money...LOL. happy crafting #1

RosA said...

Ah, who can resist a sale! I share your problem :)
Thanks for stopping by too,

Darnell J Knauss said...

That is funny that we both talked about those pesky sale racks, Trisha! And lots of people are talking about major cleans. I thought a lot of folks did that in spring, so this must be all of us who didn't get the spring cleaning bug until now! Great mail art from Krishna (yes, I see it) and wonderful goodies from the Amish store! Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week! Thanks for the visit to me! Darnell #12

Belinda Basson said...

Who doesn't love a good sale? Those look yummy! Love the colours you chose too. Don't watch TV (always at my desk!) So don't know Downton abby! Would you believe it? #43

Maisie Moonshine said...

Mmmm pompom trim - NICE! Yes I'm seeing the three Downton girls too. Hope you have a happy week, enjoy your new purchases. MMx #65

I agree those stamps definitely remind me of Downtown Abbey. Lovely goodies on your desk.

House of Bears said...

The (bears) dictionary definition of sale - You must buy it by law, either that or face prison, I mean, who would want to flout the law?

We're #84 this week :)

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh my goodness...that does look like the Downton girls! That made me very happy. And I'm so jelly of your pom poms, I need those! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #11
