A Lady That Lunches!

WOYWW1205

Well ... it is Wednesday again ... already ... and that can only mean one thing ... drum roll and fanfare ... it is time for WOYWW.

I have a very busy day ahead of me ... today Matthew ... I will be a lady that lunches and then ... wait for it ... I shall be a lady that dines out in the evening too. Bet you did n't realise I was a social butterfly did you??? Huh??? Did you???WOYWWa1205

I say social butterfly ... this is probably the only time this decade I shall do both in the same day :0)

I feel compelled to tell you all three things ... firstly I have just had about 6 feet of hair chopped off at the hair dressers this morning ... WOYWW21205

Second ... the whole two bottles of Glossy Accents opened on my desk at the same time thing ... well ... It disturbs me ... for some unknown and terribly odd reason ... that you can think that. I meticulously use every last drop of a bottle of Glossy Accents before opening a new one ... so the two bottles you can see are Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents :0) Blimey ... sharing that ... has been cathartic.WOYWW31205

Third ... Don't worry about the small amount of re-inkers visible on my desk ... I have drawers and shelves full of them ... I even photographed me favourites ... just to reassure you that I was n't lacking :0)

WOYWW41205 Well that is me ... another couple of pieces of PINNED UP wall art close ups ... I can shout that out loud now he knows :0) and a day of eating ahead ... Don't you worry though ... I shall still find the time to pop around to each and everyone of you again this week ... I just LOVE this WOYWW gig ... and if you have no idea what it is ... drop in on Julia ... she will tell all!

Edit: Numpty Alert ... Got myself all dolled up ... went to meet my lunch buddies ... thought I had been stood up ... only it's official ... I am a numpty ... coz we are n't doing lunch until the 13th :0) DOH! I am definitely still a lady what dines out though :0) And I managed to console myself by buying a new outfit :0)

Lothian Crafts said...

Love your wall arts especially the quote one.

Sherry Goodloe said...

Hey there social butterfly *hee hee* - love the looks of your workspace today! I am the same way about my Glossy Accents as well as my Platinum Stickles! LOL yep, I have an obsession with that stuff.

Of course I love your latest pin-ups, but my question to you this morning is where's the photo of the new hair cut?!

Stop by when you get a chance :)

Tracey said...

oooo so love your hangy thingy's Linda and your desk is tidy too. LOL think you should have lunched anyway!

Julia Dunnit said...

Gah! I've done that - always when it's something I've really looked forward to! And 6 feet of hair, my oh my rapunzel, are you a stone lighter? Love the pin ups.

Twiglet said...

Oh now you can look forward to it all over again!! Have fun and enjoy that new outfit!

Lori said...

Six feet of hair??? Did you get your head shaved, then? lol Lovely pieces you've shown here, and I think I've seen crackle and glossy accent bottles so much, I knew from the start they were too different things. You have to get up pretty early to fool me! (Well, not that early...)

Rosie said...

So how much hair have you REALLY had chopped off, and do you like it?? I'm loving that green hanger thingy - that flower is delicious, can you remember who makes the stamp?? Coming here is bad for me - I always want to buy the stamps ....

Candace said...

Love the wall art, hope you enjoy your meal tonight. Shame about lunch but at least you have it to look forward to tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing

Paula Gale said...

YOU ARE MAD!!! Go make yourself a calendar to pin up on your wall to ensure you get your dates right... - this might mean taking one of those fabby pieces of art off the nails that your hubby didn't comment on - but all would not be lost - I'd give it a good home and it would aid my recovery and all that (is it working yet - or do I have to pester more like Julia did????)!!! LOL

Where on earth is the reference to Lord TH - and the number of sleeps eh, eh???

Also - did you used to be called rapunzel before you had your hair cropped - what are you ten feet tall!!!

My - you made me laugh on all sorts of levels today :O) - good job it doesn't hurt anymore!!!

Paula x x x x

Spyder said...

Another yummy look around your crafty-ness, I do love your wall art thingies and all those 'refiles' !!!! I've got ONE of Tim's inks.
Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents... on the very rare times I use the first, once it dries it curls up and cracks anyway.
Bloggers being very mean...wouldn't let me comment on any ones blog...so...I might be back again later!! (hide!)

((lyn))

Hi, Linda - now, you may or may not be out to dinner tonight as you may have got that date wrong too - don't forget to go to Ranger U on the right day will you??????

Debra said...

Your wall plaques are beautiful. I told my DH to ask his international students to start bringing the beer mats with them over to the states with they come for training!

Sarah said...

A social butterfly and amazingly talented *sigh* some people have all the luck. For some reason looking at your desk makes me want to go shopping LOL

Wipso said...

I have a feeling having the 6 feet of hair removed was something to do with your lapse of memory :-)

Hazel said...

I haven't visited for a while (we've both been poorly), but just catching up with all your fabby craftiness - how exciting to be going to TH's heaven - not long to go now. Congrats on the CS article - can't get out to the shops atm so I ordered my mag from an online shop (along with a few other goodies for therapy - lol!) x

Cath said...

You cheerup a dull day even without talking about his lordship. Have a great time at lunch TODAY and how many peeps is it??????

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Linda, wow great to have a scenic rummage around your WOYWW! Hope you had a super lunch, I love Tim Holtz too, those inks are a defo must have! hugs Heidi xx

Debbie S said...

Oh my, concerned of Reading here. Are you no longer off to Ranger U? You seem to have stopped counting. On the basis that I think you are still going but possibly don't care enough to count anymore I think I should be going instead! See you at AC in a couple of weeks.

PS I'm quite jealous of all those re-inkers you have and the illegally hung wall art is quite fab too.

Mummylade said...

I'm totally convinced you're not lacking in the re-inking department =).
And your profile photo makes me sooo envious every time I pop in here!

Tonje said...

I love your profile picture too! Your wall hangings are fabolous and you do really have A LOT of reinkers!

Kirsty.a said...

Oh, what a shame. Still you have a lunch date to look forward to.
Loving your wall art

Chrissie said...

Your stuff is always so interesting, but I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one who gets things muddled. Glad you got your dinner though!
Chrissie

Rachel said...

You're space is so creative, full of art and inspiration. I love that you're surrounded by your own gorgeous art; it must help when you're blocked to be reminded of the beautiful things you've already made!

Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts said...

Your desk is fab full of fun stuff & your makes are just stunning. Thank you for popping by my blog.

Ikki said...

Bad luck on missing lunch, but god compensation - a new outfit and hairstyle. Hope you had a great evening out! Still love your wall art. ikki x

craftytrog said...

At least I don't write as much as you!! Lol! Very witty repartee as usual, are you lunching today?! xx

Bettythebaglady said...

Linda Thanks for popping in to my little bit of heaven. See you have got a grunge rose tutorial on your blog so will have to check it out and see what you southerners have been up to. You think you looked bad on your passport photo-way back when I had mine propped on the mantelshelf-"Is that your Dad some horrid child asked my son". Anyway I'm mighty envious of your trip to Tim land. Hugs BettyXXX

The Inky Minx said...

Oh i love a good visit to the hairdressers, having your hair washed is the best bit... as for getting your dates mixed up.. it could of been worse.. you could of been a day late!
