Whats on My Workdesk Wednesday? Cogs, cogs and more Cogs...oh and a cat! 306

Hello there fellow Desker from Julia's Place.  Here you see my desk from far to show off the contraption myself and DH invented and built to hold my iPad so I can shoot video footage of my desk.  I have hung my Steampunk hat and goggles on its ends to stop me banging my head on them!  They are just at eyelevel and being silver...hard to see even with the day glow orange stickers on them!
Then an up close of the pile of cogs I came across at one of my suppliers...I pounced on them with such glee that another shopper came over to see what I was so excited about!  This will last me a while and I can use them in my classes.
There are 50 of the larger cogs per packet and 100 of the tiny ones per packet...that is an average of 1200 cogs on my desk right now!  Steampunk Heaven! I found a mini cookie jar to store them in as I got 2 bags of most of the cogs, now to go and get another 11 jars...one good thing always leads to another!
Then just as I was about to type this up, I looked back at my desk and there was Marmalade under his personal sun...My 100W day light bulb!

Thats me for today.  I hope that I can get to a few desks this morning before work if Mr Linky is there this week.  Just my luck that the week I last participaed in, he was AWOL, but it was 1 April!

  3. Wise cat! Mine sits on the landing in the morning as the sun shines through the window and then retreats to the back room where the sun shines through the window! Wise animals indeed.

  12. Aweeeeesome looking desk today! I love all those cogs/gears. I love steampunk and wish I could find a supplier around here for such a deal. I use my hat and goggles in much the same way...to prevent an accident on my table. Love Marmalade and his personal sun lamp. Thanks for stopping by my desk already. Vickie #8

  18. Fab find! Would love to,get my hands on some many gears n cogs! Do you post from your iPad? What program do you use? Blogger? An app? I ask since I've been locked out of the BlogPress app after its last update. Hence the reason I'm not linking up on WOYWW . Thanks and Hugs Nan
