WOYWW 367 - they keep coming!

Hello deskers it's that time again... it's wonderful to see our much loved Head Desker Julia making the odd comment and post on facebook, so glad you are (slowly) on the mend..
We are also grateful to Lunch Lady Jan for stepping into the breach and heading up the desk sharing for now... I've cleared my cookies and browsing history so let's hope I can link up by myself today!!

anyhow, "they keep coming" could refer to - anniversary atcs  -  or knowing me - shopping..
as it happens... it's both!
 this is how my desk WAS going to look today.. my anniversary swap partner was the lovely Bridget in Australia and her gorgeous sparkly atc arrived last Thursday.  there's also a newly started (and very pink) journal page and a birthday card
 then, on Sunday my entry to the Paperartsy 'houses' topic challenge was randomly awarded a prize which I spent no time in claiming and choosing my goodies  which arrived today (oops, Tuesday I mean)
so it could have looked like this...
 but, also on Tuesday, I had a surprise in the mail too, from the lovely Dolores (Cardarian) of another atc and a beautiful card... very unexpected and so welcome!
Thank you....

so, it actually looks like this!!


Happy desking, catch you all soon!

Lovely surprises in the post. I really like that concentric circles stamp. I can see lots of uses for it. Happy Wednesday to you Helen.
