Some Findings and WOYWW 217

Hi there My Friends.

The end of July is here and we are well into the second half of the year...
My workdesk for WOYWW 217 is our topic today.

This is my table at my FIL house on the island of Lesvos...I went junking and have found more things to add to My Dress Form Birthday Challenge prizes

 My finds include 3 bound books for altering, they are perfect with  beautiful poetry.(will be difficult to cut themup!) Some white flowers, 5 spools for  making Brussels Lace,chrystals, some bling, some metal handles, got to love the bird...I love the leaves they are perfectly aged Iwant to use them on the dress form I am making...a bee..that will be stashed by me! And some metal decorations, that I will be sharing in my RAK
In the background are some clay dress forms that I made.
I leave you with some inspiration.....My favourite tree, The Olive Tree.

I hope to visit your blogs later to do some housework.
