This week I was moaning about the fact that my reels of washi tape were bursting out of the box they were in and the lid wouldn't close. So, my wonderful husband disappeared into his garage and came out with this tape holder - it fits perfectly on the top of my shelf units and under the sloping ceiling - he even left room for me to buy a few more reels of tape - but I don't think he realised that!
The over-sized teacup is from my favourite book store/coffee shop in San Diego.
Still in the mood for getting organised I sorted all my plain ribbons onto a wire coat hanger - I was fed up with sorting through a box full of tangled mess each time I wanted ribbon. It is rather big to live on the notice board so I shall have to find a home for it - but it's a lot easier to use like that!
The little tags on the board are covered in small pieces of lace, patterned ribbons, stickers and tapes that I have -it's a quick reminder of what is hidden away in the bottom of boxes, without having to rummage too much!
For Tag Tuesday this week I decided to stick with the theme of pollen, despite the subject being sewing!
I printed pollen images onto silk and then sewed them onto tags (so I am being true to the theme!). I decided on a white background so the pollen could 'float' around.
My current obsession by Rob Kesseler and Madeline Harley
I know a lot of people feel quite negative towards pollen as they suffer from it so badly during the summer. I get terrible hay fever each year and I find it hard to believe that something that makes my life so horribly miserable can be so utterly beautiful! What is so wondrous is that life is dependent on each of these exquisite little works of nature!
I'm linking this to WOYWW - if you want to nose around other people's work desks and see what they are up to click on the link on the right.
Also, why not visit Tag Tuesday and see some beautiful tags with this week's theme of 'sewing'.
