From this...to this

Hello Everyone,

I came home from work on Tuesday afternoon...shattered...and walked into my living room and was greeted with this...



And this....



I turned on my telly, made my coffee, kept looking at these objects in my room...wondering..where did they come from?....my kids were not at their place when I rang..so just waited, in case they were here by mistake.....

My daughter rang me about an hour or so later and asked what did I think...they were from her work, where she is manager of a baby store, and they were having a refurbish, and she told HER boss that I would love these, so they were mine...

My craft room went from this......



to this....




And storage from this.......




To this.....





The old desk over to here.....and great space to fill with my trolleys and a place for my G/kids to sit when they feel inclined....




AND....They can talk to the fish...who are resonably clean this time....Widget and Blinkie.

And still got gaps to fill...I love my new desk and bookcase, and very thankful...have so much more floor space, my chair wooshes across the carpet to get what I want....so very cool...


This has taken well over an hour to post as loading up images took forever....on a rfeal go slow today, and now I'm off to see 'My Lady' for an hour and then I'm free at this stage to get things done at home.

Thanks for dropping by, and will see you all later...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hello my friend. I am so happy for you. Your daughter is just as sweet as her Mom and I think that is just fantastic that she would bring those over to suprise you. Talk about a fun way to spend your afternoon. Your work station looks fantastic. Sorry I haven't been around lately.. My mojo and everything in between just has not been around. I keep going through the motions, but not the heart. I finally sat down tonight and had a great time making a couple card for this week, so I am hoping that I am back in the groove again. heehee we'll see. Stay cool and we'll stay warm. I can't remember if I told you that Jerry and I were very happy to hear that you were safe and sound. We love talking about you and your world. Hugs, Lisa
