What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?

Welcome, if you've come over here from Julia's fab WOYWW. I don't have much on the go at the moment, so I thought I'd let you look inside the antique bureau which I have adopted as a hiding place for my stash. You should feel very privileged - I don't let just anyone rummage in there!

All my adhesives, scissors, inks, embossing powders (anything which would make a massive mess or cause injury if the children got hold of them) live in the main part of the bureau. I don't do a lot of stamping so my collection is much smaller than some of those I have admired on previous Wednesdays. The pink box on top holds all my small scraps of paper for use on cards.The drawers are a pefect size for 12x12 papers, which are roughly sorted into colour-co-ordinated piles.The bottom drawer is full of gift boxes containing finished pieces of jewellery ready to sell or give as presents.
Enjoy your day, I'm off for a snoop at what other people have been up to!

This is my second visit to your bureau and I love it. Have now got designs on the one I have downstairs as would be good for when I can't make it up the stairs to my craft room-greedy I know but sometimes I just want to loz out and watch telly while I do a bit of crafty stuff. Have you tried Carte d'or ice cream boxes for stash.Very sturdy,stackable and the contents are tasty too!Hugs BettyXXX

oo thanks for allowing us in, and what a gorgeous piece of furniture. I am so torn between modern furniture and older pieces that have character.

Lovely, and thanks for the rummage - what a special person I am, arf arf! I think you have quite a lot of papers on the quiet. Yummy. I have a bureau too - it's in my bedroom - draws full of PJs etc and the desk section is make up and well, that sort of stuff - they are so good at hiding stuff!
