WOYWW 139

I've been busy lol. But all the projects that were on my craft table have been photographed and need to be written up, so not much to see. Except, the little round thing at the base of the lamp is my great-grandmother's pocket watch that was missing from it's box for 3 years, discovered when my daughter was cleaning under the air hockey table. Cleaning does have it's benefits lol. It's been a long/short week. Technically there are still 30 minutes left in Tuesday, but allll day long I've been thinking it's Wednesday.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground (the blog was nominated for Craft Stamper March Issue Blog of the Month btw, she's very crafty!).

Wow! Wasn't I just here (grin)? I guess I didn't think you were joining WOYWW this week. Glad to see your Grandmother's pocket watch was found. Yep, a good cleaning is all that was needed, I'm sure. Happy WOYWW. I'm # 30 this week.

I'm so glad your daughter found the watch.
FIL gave us his watch and presented it to DH in a lovely display case. It is a sort of teensy but tall, cheese dome looking thing. Easy to take the lid off for access, keeps the dust off and keeps it is one place.
I am sure if we didn't have that, ours would been lost by now too!

Sheena said...

Isn't it lovely to find something that has been lost for so long?!
I'm attempting to visit everyone on the WOYWW list this week. t'is a daunting task but at least I'm trying, more than I've done before!
