WOYWW #2 - Puppy Love

[Edited to add: Oops! Totally forgot to link What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday when I posted this morning!]

Happy Hump Day! It's another WOYWW and I've made it to the computer before I'm off and running for the day. Here's a quick picture of the left side of the workbench...still in progress, of course! 

And the newest addition to our family! He's not usually on my workbench, but he's So.Darn.Cute! A little camera shy? He's our Border Collie rescue. More on him another post...  :)

In this picture you can see my Ikea buckets, rails and wooden drawers. Love these. Actually picked them up a few years ago in Germany and have used, repurposed and used again. I hear that the Ikea in Denver is supposed to open this fall...fingers crossed! Hoping they carry the fabric, too!

By the way, a few of you have commented on my ribbon rack shelves...Simple Pleasures, (SP) our favorite LSS, has a few ribbon racks in the clearance section, if you hurry! Just cut a piece of wood to fit them, sand, paint and ta-da! Lovely, functional shelves! Thanks, again to tBG!

This picture below is of my original desk (put together from parts from Ikea...). I still use this one. It has the remnants of my SP Card Club (swap.) covering it. Hope to get a picture of the card soon.

Will have more details later. Gotta run! I can't wait to stop by this evening and see everyone's WOYWW!

Happy Hugs,


  1. Oh, how cute little puppy!
    I have those Ikea drawers, too, and I like them very much! I have 24 small drawers and I never do remember what is where - it´s like a Christmas calendar throughout the year :D

  2. Great looking desk with all the cute buckets and drawers. You're pretty organized- wish i could say the same about me! I'm the opposite! Glad you made WOYWW! Patsy from
