What's On Your Desk Wednesday? & Lotsa Blog Love

I've been very lax in posting awards and participating in tag memes so this is my belated attempt to make amends. Please note I do say 'attempt', my middle name IS 'muddle' but please know that my slackness in no way diminishes my appreciation of all the blog love. However appreciation doesn't seem to be the best motivator for getting my exceedingly disorganised self over the line :-) Thanks so much to the following wonderful bloggers, some of these lovely ladies have become friends across the miles. If you haven't already done so, take the time to check out their awesome blogs. What's on your desk Wednesday? is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Alternative-Read I confess to tidying up before the photo, otherwise it would have been; desk... what desk??? List at least 5 BOOKISH things on your desk -

The books on my desk aren't all TBR books for now, my TBR pile 'in action' is mostly by my bed, oh ok and my desk, the floor, my bookcases *sigh* you get the picture.

  • Dime Store Magic that I used for Teaser Tuesday & it's on my reading list this week.
  • The Last Queen because I was going to use it for Teaser Tuesday
  • Library books & secondhand book store finds not shelved yet
  • notes for next book review
  • notes for uploading audio books
  • note for how to make transparent backgrounds on pics for my blog (woot woot)

List at least 5 NON BOOK things -

  • my ipod for audio books (haven't listened to music in... hmm forever)
  • my mobile
  • eeyore pen
  • some US coins from Dad's trip to the States
  • thinking of you card from a friend

  1. Congratz on all the awards :D And I love to lurk what everybody else has on their desks, yours is very well organized. I feel i have post-it trees al over my desk, somewhere a synonym dictionary, a can of peppermint etc.

    Chaos is my middle name :D

  2. That is a lot of catching up! Congrats on your awards and for letting us take a peak at your desk. I still haven't gotten around to that one.

  3. I really need to thank my blog award senders too. Love the desk - much tidier than mine.

  4. Thanks guys,

    Leontine ~ I thrive on chaos & muddle is my middle name. Sassy tagged me a month ago to do the desk meme, it's taken me that long to get my act together.

    Scrap girl ~ I'm ashamed to say it has taken me months to acknowledge some of these awards.

    I truly am a complete muddlehead but I feel better now that I've acknowledged even though I didn't get organised enough to nominate others.

  5. I love stacks of books!! Your desk looks pretty good!! And congrats on those awards!!

  6. Wow, so many awards! Congratulations. They're well deserved. =)

    I like your tower of books. Leaning towers of books sometimes make us want to give it the eye roll, but can't live without them. =)

    "Fatal Cure" . . . . Hmm, sounds like a medical thriller. I think I'll look it up.

  7. Hey, Teddyree,

    Thanks for playing along! I can't wait to see your new transparent background on your blog! I really should do something with mine, but I've got so fed up with trying. NOthing ever looks right to me, so I tell everyone I have gone for the minimalist look! :)

    I haven't listened to music on my iPod for ages either, just books!

    Hey, I have just spotted your computer picture - is your desk as we are seeing now! :) That's pretty cool.

    May I add your pics to my flickr page please? I have added bigger pictures to my blog - the badge I had was just too teeny-weeny to see anything. What I have now is much, much better! :)

    Thanks again for playing along, and congratulations on all those awards!


  8. Congratulations on all the cool awards! I like the memories on your desk, it makes it such an inviting place to be.

  9. Congratulations Teddyree!

    Very well deserved. And, I agree with Sharon - your new banner is just beautiful. :)

    I e-mailed you your updated Slide with your awards and changed the color to match your background. :)


  10. You were not supposed to tidy! :D
    But that's a really good desk!

  11. Congrats on your awards -- you so deserve them.

  12. Wow! That's a lot of blog love you got. great awards, congratulations. I can't say I'm surprised though, they are all given to a wonderful blogger.
