WOYWW #197

I hereby certify that this is a true photo of my workdesk, unaltered and unadorned, as it was left last evening and photographed this morning.

Verified by the clock on the desk!!!  This belonged to my mother, bought in Singapore in 1932 ish and, being the windup kind, still works.  It usually sits on top of my radio but has to be moved  in order to switch off the radio - the last thing I did before leaving the room!!!
On my desk are two ATCs as I am starting to play around with these - nothing to do with Julia's suggestion (much) about celebrating 4yrs with a swap.  
BTW all the details abut WOYWW can be found at the top of this post.
I am also experimenting with making some 'grunge' stamps with the knife and a cheap pack of pretty pink stamps from Lidl.
Everything else much the same - my daughter and niece still smiling at me (or are they laughing at my attempts to be ........ something else!!!) 
Thank you everyone for visiting me last week and leaving comments, sorry I was late visiting some of you.
Happy WOYWW day!
