WOYWW #522

Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to  and all will be revealed!

Greetings everyone! Hope you are drier than we have been! This has been such a wet and cold spring, it's June and I'm still putting the furnace on, it's so cold! We are having some painting in the house done today, hopefully my dreary grey walls will look much brighter painted white!

SO, I have been busy working in my junk journal this week, here is my desk this morning:

I am in the middle of working on a page about the house tour that my Mom and I went on a couple of weeks ago, and I finished my Mother's Day entry as well.

Mother's Day

 Here in Canada Mother's Day was on May 12. Here is my page in my junk journal for that day, as well as my DD's birthday:

The cats is my Mother's Day card from my DD - it opens up to this!

The tiny writing under the strip says that my DD turned 33!

House Tour:

Every year the Kingston Symphony holds a fund raising House Tour. Each house that is visited has some kind of live music playing (although we often seem to arrive during changeovers). We visited 7 houses. 

Each house has a long blurb that no one reads to go under the photo in the House Tour booklet. I just took the lines that I thought relevant and used them. These cards fit into the pocket on the right side of the page (see first pic)

And each page has a little key or lock charm

Garden and Kitties:  Can you find Mittsy?

Finally the crab apple is blooming!

And this, I can't remember what it is:
 But Mittsy likes to smell it!
   And Inky is 6 years old today!
Seems like yesterday she was just a tiny kitten!

Some of you commented on the holder that I found for my Spray inks. I found it on, here is the link:     

That's it for me today, sorry it's so long, good for you if you got this far! I'm looking forward to hearing all about the crop! Meows from the kitties, and have a wonderful week! from me!

Wow, great pages Lindart, lots of work in them. Such a cute card from your daughter, I love that you’ve included it. The house tours sound brilliant, what a great idea...perhaps you should be the editor for all the blurb they produce!

I am so sorry to have taken so long to visit. Unfortunately, my electricity was off this afternoon and into the night due to the storms. Now it is back on and I'm trying to play catch up.

I always love your busy desk, but what really made me happy today was the Junk Journal and the Mother's Day card. Especially loved the cat card from your daughter. It's fabulous. Your house tour certainly provided a lot of fodder for your journal. I loved it all, especially the key and padlock ephemera. Happy WOYWW from #3.
