Not much time for crafting or blogging but I definitely wanted to participate in Julia Dunnit's weekly wednesday workdesk meet 'n greet!
Back home again I still seem to have a bit of creative block. Even though I already proudly added my latest bargain that is meant to help with organizing my acrylic colours, colour mists and various "elixirs"...
See? I love that I have all my bottles and sprays (that were previously stored in boxes with lids (and an old shoes card board box...brrrr!) right at hand now AND that I can put them out of the way with just one single grasp.
But as you can also see - my desk is rather empty. Not much going on at the moment - me, having the flu and still having to unpack some of the numerous bits 'n pieces that we had with us on our three weeks holiday... a lot of laundry to do as well...and my son starting school right now...all in all a lot of work to do but not too inspirational to be honest. BUT...
...I was sooo lucky to have kinda Christmas in the middle of summer when we visited my husband's uncle while on holidays, who is a genius when it comes to repairing old motorcycles and cars and shopping at flea markets!
He bought himself an old "Steyr" car from 1936 and made it all shiny and new (and working again of course) during the last six years. It's such a beauty! Sadly the weather was very wet and cold so we could not take a ride with it... I love that beautiful old fashioned design with the shiny wooden steering wheel, the tiny wind screen whipers, the shining red metal and the wonderful leather seats.
When you visit his garage, you feel like you have entered Ali Baba's fourty thieves' treasure cave! And he did not only show me around, but I got a lot of old aged timeworn stuff from him (after my husband had insisted on showing him my blog):
Awesome, isn't it? A lot of rusted beauties, old keys and cigar boxes... and they are all mine now! Thank you so much, Uncle Helmut, for giving away all those lovely things! :)
Can't promise to visit and comment on a lot of workdesks this wednesday, but I'll try! Promise!
