WOYWW 178 (I think?!)

Good morning and welcome fellow WOYWWers. SO glad you are only catching a glimpse into my world via a cable today as it's a 'plaque house' at the moment - the lurgy seems to be hitting us all this half term. Now that is the perfect excuse for staying indoors crafting except that my mojo/head has gone very fuzzy. I spent a good portion of yesterday creating these leaves and now have to work out what to do with them! As you can see all the necessary supplies are poised for action...

And this is for you Morti (I've shown you mine, now you show me yours!!) I mentioned our woof recently and was asked to produce a piccie of her. Butter wouldn't melt! (NOT) We rescued her a year ago, underweight, untrained (in any way) and confused, and life has never been the same since:) She is now plenty heavy enough (just ask my feet when she sits on them) Kennel Club trained (when she remembers/bothers:) and totally at home except when the hoover comes out!

Right, time to visit the lives of my fellow WOYWWers. For those unfamiliar with this term we are a bunch of friendly crafters who meet up via the internet and share our workdesks/lives. If you fancy having a browse/joining in then please head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for the details. Hugs, Buttons x


  1. Hello to gorgeous Morti and my first desk view of the week.
    My little fella left us a year ago next month, he was a beauty. I will send you a pic.
    Have a great week and hope you are all on the mend. Hubby had it in this house so it was separate beds for us for a while.

  3. Hope you are better really soon. Love those leaves, they look real.
    That is one really cute doggy.
    Have a great week.

  4. What a beautiful dog you have there. My Sorrel went to puppy class for 12 months and got a rosette and a certificate but then we dropped out because she wouldn't leave the other dogs alone - wanted to play all the time. Still she's got the basic commands, even if she doesn't always obey them.
    Stunning leaves, just like the real thing at the moment, am just back from walking the dog, kicking leaves as I go.
    Had a look at your previous post and your tag is a stunner - back for a closer look later.
    Thanks for visiting me earlier.
    Happy WOYWW

  5. Your leaves are so pretty - how about making them into a tealight jar? It would gorgeous with the light shining through. Beautiful dog too, looks so cute. Happy WOYWW! Karen T 96 x

  6. Hi Buttons, what is 'plaque lurgy'. I ask because I have such a sore tongue and lip and following the picture of Morti it makes me wonder.
    BTW Morti is looking beautiful, what a handsome fella he is so well done you for turning his life around.
    Thanks for visiting me when I was away.
    Hugs, Neet xx 23

  7. Happy WOYWW. I love those leaves. I love anything to do with autumn. Gorgeous dog. One of my favourite breeds - but I cannot cope with the exercise/stimulation/grooming they need. Must keep you busy. Ali x #55

  8. Like the stencil. I have one of those make and only just used in through my Cuttlebug the other day for the first time as was really surprised at how well it worked.
    Hope you all feel better soon. BJ#35

  9. HI Buttons
    Those leaves look amazing and what a tidy crafter you are.
    As for the furry one, if he ever would like to leave home I would happily give him a cozy corner! I know, I know, you will not part with him.

  10. I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
    Big hugs,

  11. Love the look of the stamp set to the left, who makes that one?It just hit my must-have list, lol.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #86

  12. So many nasty bugs going round! I love all your Autumn bits and bobs. x Jo #76

  13. Oh my goodness, that's a sweet dog and I love your flowers! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #22

  14. Thanks for sharing pics of your interesting desk and that gorgeous dog

  15. What a gorgeous hound you have there. Hope you find a use for your lovely leaves. The mask under them is great too.

    Get well soon.

    Love the bears @#104 (we think)

  16. Those leaves look amazing and I look forward to seeing them in action!! Hope you get to feeling better! Your dog is gorgeous and looks very well cared for. So happy to know another person who rescues dogs from shelters!! That is where all mine come from! Don't you feel as if they rescue you? Have a great day!

  17. Those leaves look so pretty, can't wait to see what you do with them. Your friend is might pretty too.

  18. Thought those leaves were real they are superb. Sorry you're not feeling good. Funny how these lurgys - (a word I've not heard for a long time) - seem to hit during the down time from school or work or both.

  19. great to see a little climps on what you're creating next and what a beautiful picture of your dog! So great that you've rescued her! She looks happy as could be! Hugs, Sandra

  20. The leaves look luscious - can't wait to see what they end up adorning... and what an absolutely beautiful dog - she's completely gorgeous!

  21. The leaves really are gorgeous and Morti is one handsome brute. Same breed as my neighbours dog, Talisker. He is a few years old now and hUGe, but oh what a softie.
    Happy WOYWW :0) Mo, x

  22. Hello Buttons and gorgeous Morti how happy does he look on that photo a real doggy model. Thank you for visiting my blog again and your lovely comments. I spy Guilding Flakes on your desk I love playing with these. Hope you feel better soon Hugs - Mo x

  23. Lovely leaves and what a nice dog, is she a malamute(I think that is how you spell it) gorgous anyway. Get better soon. Francesca #71

  24. The leaves look wonderful, cannot wait to see what you will create.

  25. What a gorgeous girl!!!! She looks so sweet and innocent.......
    I have that mask too - not used yet!
    Looking forward to see what you do with the leaves
    Get well soon!
    Have a good week

  26. The leaves are gorgeous, very realistic but ever prettier! :) Your pup has a darling face, very nicely marked, and she looks like a sweetie. Did you catch the pictures of my Weenie Dawg when you were over on my blog? Thanks for the comment, by the way...I don't have a hostess trolley but I would love one! I usually just eat in the living room, watching tv, or with my son and then move to the craft cave with just my soda. Happy WOYWW to you, too! :)

  27. Leaves look fabulous! I spy a tub of gold leaf? I am aching to get my hands into that.. Sweet pup! I expect a few pet pictures up next week! I will put up a picture of our spoiled fox hound, who has no manners, little training and sheds pounds of hair EVERY day! Thanks for coming my way Sandi #27

  28. She's gorgeous! I always wanted a husky growing up...love all that fur!

  29. I love all the autumny colours on your desk, those lovely leaves, the gilding flakes, that beautiful flower... All just lovely.

    Sorry to hear you are poorly, and I hope you soon get over it.

    Thanks for your nice comment, and I'm glad you like my knitting. I may be a gal who loves organisation but I'm not always a gal who actually is organised lol!!

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #16

  35. ROFLMAO..... now when did I ask to a pic of the hound? I recall it, just can't remember when, the time flies...

    And double ROFL at the folks who think he's called Morti - what IS his name? He's absolutely adorable - I have put a pic of mine on my blog in the past but will have to dig another one out for next week....
