On My Desk Wednesday (only that'll be Thursday, then!)

Yikes...I could hyperventilate right now. Just look at this little pile of lovelies I rescued from the bargain bin last Saturday! Simply tipping them out onto the table for their very own photoshoot has made me go all funny! It must be the lusciousness of the fabrics, or the textured slubs that does it....or simply the rich colours? Whatever it is that make these sing to me, I'm not sure, but all I can visualise right now are historical-based glamorous collars - high necked, slightly frilled and tucked, and just plain decadent.

Too much Henry VIII if you ask me!

for someone who only wears black (pretty much), I'm amazed at my ability to go potty over colour!

*For more beautiful things on lucky desks, pop over to kootoyoo and take a quick peek.

How gorgeous! I LOVE color and textures too, even though I wear a lot of brown and not a lot of frills, much to my daughter's dismay.

Thank you for listing ODD in your Saturday mosaic!
