Whats on my workdesk Wednesday 195? Relax, Laugh and Peace!

Hello fellow Wednesday desk hopper, welcome to my desk over in Cape Town, South Africa.

I finally climbed up onto my desk and found the words that had slid off the wall in the heat down behind the back of beyond... now I must go and get some mirror tape to stick them back above my desk.

At the back of my desk you can see my name tray that I was inspired to make by fellow WOYWWer Minxy who put one on her Face book page
And here is mine up close:
Then just in the top of my desk picture, you can see the bottom of a comic I printed off Paula's blog that she found here at Hyperalergic which I thought was so very me...especially the last two blocks!  Like the artist was in my head!
So that is me for this Wednesday.  Now I am off to Julia's blog to see if you have linked up and are joining in the fun of the world wide desk hop and snoop!

Thanks fro the visit



  1. Hello Bella, I just have to leave a comment as my youngest daughter is called Bella too! I really love your name plate and I might have to pinch the idea for my Bella lol! You did a beautiful job with it. LOVE your work desk with the shelving at the back with the drawers.. I am drooling..I want too!! Happy WOYWW :-).

  2. Happy WOYWW. Loving your nameplate. Glad you found your wall lettering. The cartoon made me laugh. I live an isolated life, apart from the internet, and I always want to be back at home 'working' when we do venture out. Ali x #24

  3. Great that you found all your words. Heat is bad like that around here in the summer too but we have central air now and it is pretty much the same year round inside. Love the nameplate. I have always admired Minxy's and really like yours too so maybe I should make me one...we'll see! Love the cartoon. I relate too. I feel guilty sometimes but get over it pretty fast. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing with us! Vickie #39

  4. Love the name plates! had missed Nicky's before. Have a creative week. helen, 8

  5. your name plate is really pretty and such a lovely idea I am sure others will follow on from this.
    Your words on your desk are great I have something like that put away somewhere to be done.
    Love the comic how many of us could that be about
    Happy WOYWW hope you have a great day

  8. That's a very good cartoon! I agree with the desire to be working instead of out like that. Love that name plaque too. #63

    janet #31 i think as Mr Linky has gone AWOL

  15. LOL love the comic strip,the desk and scrabble style plate, thanks for sharing Tracy #72

  16. Well Bella, today's post has made me go "oops", " "Oooo" and "Tee Hee"! Thanks for the giggles with the comic strip. Love the name plate but let's face it, mine would take up most of my desk!

  17. The comic's so nice to know that I am not the only one!!! I thought it was made specifically for me. I keep telling myself I have to do something about my "art problem". My husband and children think I need an intervention!LOL

  18. Hi Bella ! Love your cartoons ! How true is all that ! Hope you are still enjoying your summer weather - can't believe it's a whole month since I was out there with you & it's March tomorrow - where did February go !! Hope you have a great week ! Ali xx

  19. Love your desk - so cozy. Glad you found your words. And that comic is hilarious!
