Apologies to my fellow WOWWY-ers for my absence recently. We are extremely busy in the run-up to our house move next Monday (16th) and I haven’t had time to think about it. The reason I’m joining you this time is that this will be the last for a little while, partly due to having too much to do, and partly because for a week after we move, we will have no internet access or phone so apart from my hubby’s mobile we’ll be cast back into the 19th century or thereabouts – probably a good thing as there will be no distractions and we can get on with sorting the house before Mum comes down to join us on 28th September.
So now to my desk. Yes. I have one at last! Or rather, a continuous work surface for different work zones. I have now unpacked nearly all my ARTHaven boxes and all the stuff is in, apart from a few bits and pieces, but it’s far from sorted! Here’s the main work area, which is the most sorted so far.
There will be things on the wall above the work surface and a lot more organisation, but at least it’s starting to look like a working space!
On the right of the desk you can see one of our beautiful genuine art deco door plates from when the new house was built in 1925. I am intending to make a mould from this and cast some more, so that the doors match throughout the house – at the moment these are only upstairs. This will probably be my first project in my new ARTHaven. See my last post for full details.
The builders are still in, and won’t be finished before we move, unfortunately, but it shouldn’t be long before we’re all settled in and getting into some sort of routine. There is a great deal to do so please bear with me as we cope with it all, and forgive my lack of desk-visiting! I will try and visit those of you who visit me but I won’t cope with more than that, I’m afraid.
Next time I’m on WOYWW, we will be in our new house! How exciting is that! See you on the other side.
Have a great week, everyone, and happy WOYWW – click on the logo in my sidebar if you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about, and this will take you to our hostess Julia’s website where you can click and join in.
