"Fork handles!" Plus WOYWW 147

Hi everyone it's that time of the week again WOYWW.  So without further's mine;

On the left there are a few nearly finished samples from recent demo's awaiting finishing touches to be sent to my boss.  On the right a few purchases from my weekends gallivanting....loving the zip ribbons.
My desk isn't too bad today.  I've got a couple of cards I need to make then I hope to have some fun with Tim Holtz on line class later.  But first I have to finish my "spring clean" of my conservatory I started last night.  Now why would I tell you this?  Well earlier in the year I removed a candle stand from my front room whilst decorating.  Not very exciting in it's self but it made me giggle when I ventured in the room after the unseasonal warm weather we've had this week.  See if it makes you smile too.....

"Four candles" or should I say four very limp candles.  I did have to smile to myself as it reminded me of the great sketch by the Two Ronnies about "Fork handles!"  I love that sketch and so very clever.  I have added it below if you haven't seen it.  It really makes me giggle, how they both keep straight faces!
That's all from me for this What's on your Work desk Wednesday why not pop on over to the lovely Julia's blog and find out what other like minded crafters are up to.  It only remains for me to say thanks for the visit today, have a good one and I hope you leave me with a smile.

I know I am a week behind here but I just can't get round ALL the WOYWW blogs so have devised a system of tiles where I pull out a selection and see what number I have got and I got you this week and jolly glad I did.
Candles are ROFL material as was the sketch - I remember it well and quote it often! Thanls for the smile. BJ
