My Shelf of Messy Wonderfulness

Have I shown you this, it's my shelf of messy wonderfulness!

This is in my lounge, and as I rule I'm rather anally tidy, but not here...


It's packed full of lovely gifts and cards from my friends.  I keep my favourite cards out all year round and sometimes substitute them for others from my stash (I keep them all).


Looking at the lovely bits I see the lovely creative people behind them, like Beki, Lynda, Sue, Judith, Tina, Pene, Maria...


 Rachael, Vicki, Nicola, Amanda, Jackie, Laura...the large vase in the middle was handmade by my talented Sister in Law Lisa.


and I found the best thing last week to add to my shelf to better display my cards, check them out here...


They are even better in real life than they were in the shop photos, really high quality pegs, not your ususal clothes pegs, I'm really delighted with them and can't wait to get my hands on the Christmas versions that I know Beki is currently working on, how cool would these be to display your favourite Christmas Cards? 


 I'm currenly getting my crafty mind into swap mode and as such my head is spinning with Cupcakes and Autumn, I'll hopefully be able to show some of my makes for those soon.

I have a shelf just like that above my sewing machine - cards from wonderful friends - both bloggy & RL. Lots of lovely makes from them too. Its lovely looking at them and remembering why they were received :)

Fabulous shelf. I would spend ages gazing and drinking in the array of loveliness! Are those fab pegs from Becki?

I have a plan re the doilies - visit old ladies and while they make the tea, nick all their doilies! I think my pintrest habit would stand up in court! :-) That and the fact that I have been exposed to bad language! ;-P

Ah how beautiful! I keep all my cards too. They're dotted about all over the place. In fact, I do believe there's a Keep Calm postcard from you pinned up on the noticeboard :)
