WOYWW #214 - Happy WOYWW and Happy Birthday Fun!

Hi, guys! Hope all is well! I have been busy these past few days enjoying family and friends.  Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means!  I am sharing what is on my work desk with you!  Thank you to Julia of Stamping-Ground for this desk-hopping fun!

Sunday I had a barbecue to celebrate my birthday with my Jane Austen group of friends and sisters. I know many of you have heard of me speak of this great group of ladies.  We have tea parties, and love all things Jane. It was a great time, filled with fun, food and plenty of laughter.  I mention this because my desk is covered with lots of stamping supplies thanks to these great ladies.  They know I love tea, Paris, stamps and cookbooks.  I thought I would share the bounty with you.

I love that my friend Asia put a music CD with the stamp sets as they have the same name!  How fun!



I will be spending many hours stamping and drinking fabulous tea as well!




Today is my actual birthday, and I took the day off from work to spend it with my hubby.  We will be going out for tea at a local tea shop.  I then plan to get back in my stamp room to organize all these wonderful gifts, and break them out to create something fun! Sure wish you could be here stamping with me! I just love christening brand new stamps!

I look forward to visiting with you today!  I am so blessed with great family and friends, and I count you all among them!

Until next time!

Happy Birthday Winnie - hope you're having a great day! What fab prezzies you have on your desk you lucky girl. I'm an ex-librarian so I had a real problem with using book pages, but like you I'm convincing myself that it's OK in the name of art. Thanks for your visit, happy WOYWW MMx #59

Indeed, its exciting using new stash, I agree. I think thats probably why we keep buying stuff, to get that first use buzz. We need therapy! My name is Shaz and its been 4 hours since I last stamped, lol.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #51

No wonder we get along so well, I am a Janeite too! Although I don't have a cool club. I might just have to start one.

Hope you a had fabulous day!

Looks like you had a great birthday and happy, if belated, wishes from me. You've got some great friends there, I need some like that, lol! Hope you got/get some rain soon, I need to get in my garden this weekend, lots to do after inches of rain, looks like a jungle. Plan to bake Almond and Rhubarb squares too! Love camping, hate the prep and the clean up afterwards though!! Can't have one without the other unfortunately. Hope you get to go again sometime. Have a wonderful weekend.
