Look! a corner of my new desk


Look! Look! You can see a corner of my new desk. :) But I had to keep the Ikea table cause I have this monstrous prehistoric monitor that takes over half of my desk. But as long as it's working I'm keeping it.

We've been cleaning out my parents' apartment and I came across some old books that I can use in my projects. And under that pile are some wood blocks and canvases waiting for my genius hand to slap some magic on them. :) If you want to snoop around more desks go over to WOYWW.

Did I tell you I broke my camera? Yes, I did. It fell from that little table so it wasn't far and it was in its camera padded case that you can see on the photo but still when I turn it on it's all pink. It must be something with the lens. I don't know if it's worth repairing cause I know it will cost 100€ to fix it.

You wanna know how I know that? Cause it has happened before. It was brand new and my hubby and I went to Egypt on holiday. We were in Alexandria and I handed the camera to him to take a photo of me and when the exchange happened the camera landed on the floor. Dropped directly onto the lens so it couldn't even close. I was so upset I started crying. I blamed my husband of course. :)

So I'm using my Nikon D90 now. But I liked that little camera. I kept it in my handbag and took it everywhere with me. I'll have to think about whether to fix it or buy a new one.

  1. I know what you mean about cameras, I had a kitten who took mine on and It was dropped onto a concrete floor. It was toast, never worked again. I took photos with my Canon Rebel after that but I missed my Lumix point and shoot. I eventually bought another one and I love it. I really have to have more than one camera.

  4. Well, I am in love with those books and really want them (grin). Sorry abut the camera. I have an old one I'm using because my Kodak quit working after I broke the on/off button. Not just broke it, allowed it to fall into the camera. So , I totally understand your dilemma. I have seen them advertised for as little as $30.00 US. Not sure how good they are, but they are a camera and cheaper than the repair.

    I see you are an artsee blogger, too. Good going.

  5. I love finding old books! I have my grandfather's Spanish book, really old, but I can't bear to alter it!
    And last Monday, my water bottle spilled on my camera. Good thing it's still working! Patsy from

  7. Probably not much difference between "new" and "repair" and I can understand how you must have felt in Egypt. I would have cried too.
    Love your new desk, and all those books are just crying for attention. have fun! Hugs, Neet x x

  8. Years ago, I was on a tour through Indonesia. It rained so heavily at Borobudur that my camera drowned!! It went Phhfft and gave up the will to live. Have used my husband's since then :) xx

  11. Oh kakšna škoda da ti je kamera padla na tla, jaz imam novo - je tako priročna - vedno je z mano! Boš morala kupiti novo - brez tega se ne da živet! Jaz sem knjižničarka, tako da imam vedno pri roki kakšno staro knjigo za ustvarjanje!
    Lep pozdravček,

  16. Hi Natasha! Sorry about your camera, but at least you had another to take it's place, sort of. :) Like your work desk. Have a great rest of the week.

  17. Oh what a shame about your camera, Natasha! I think I'd cry if mine broke too. I have dropped mine several times from a height and without a padded case. It is obviously quite robust which is just as good. Hope I have not tempted provence!! I'm not ready for a new one yet!
    Lucky you having some wood blocks. Wonderful!! I've been treating myself to lots of new stamps recently, but wood is so much more tactile. Have fun using them!

  18. DOH! Dropped cameras are NOT good. Lucky you have a spare. As ever, loving your art - there is always something interesting just at the bottom of my screen and I just have to browse back :)

    I don't know why but in my head her name is Annabel Lee :) Maybe it's the bird which makes me think of The Raven, which makes me think of Poe, which makes me think of...Annabel Lee!

    :D

  19. So sad about the camera! My favorite camera died last year on a camping trip. The replacement is OK but not the same. Congrats on the finds from your parents! Thanks for sharing your desk- Amanda #45

  20. Nice looking work space. Great find at your parents house. I just appropriated one of the many copies of dictionaries my husband has been collecting over the years to use for back grounds on tags etc. Sorry about your camera. I would just buy a new one cause there is so many changes in the digital world and you might be able to get more for less this year. Thanks for sharing. Vickie

  21. Loosing a camera you are really happy with is like loosing a friend....maybe worth insuring the next one.

  23. I bought a nice little camcorder years ago from my friend's catalogue. I'd just finished paying for it when Youngest dropped it and broke the lens. By then it was a quarter of the price to buy new, and about the same to fix! Hope you get your camera sorted.
