Brass Desk Accessories

I love having something pretty on my desk that is stylish and chic, so when I was out shopping with a friend, I came across this brass and wood magazine basket at Hobby Lobby.  I think it will suit my needs better to hold some of my notepads and journals that I use on my desk.

I love the unique style of this piece, it really is different.

What a fun stylish find.  I love it.

Now I don't have a real desk or an office, I choose to use the buffet in the breakfast area since it is part of the family room and kitchen area too.  That way I am always in the middle of the action.  Since I don't have all day to sit at a computer, this works perfectly for me to jump on when I can and still keep track of the family and all that is going on.  I love being able to look out the window and right now I usually get a huge treat watching the birds coming up to drink nectar from the tiny flowers on the bush right outside the window.

I love the basket, what a find for $29.99 plus I used a 40% off coupon.  I think that's a bargain.  (Isn't my orchid gorgeous.  It is doing so good, I hope I can keep it alive.  This was my Easter Gift from my daughter.)

Ok, now I better get busy and finish this post and then figure out dinner.

How about you, do you like unusual desk accessories too?

  10. Marty, you desk looks so chic with its classy brass accessories. I love your brass basket "organizer". I would love something like that to use for daily things that come across my desk that I can "get to later". I am a desk accessory, pen, pretty paper, paper clips and all things desk and office junkie! I am always telling my husband that I want to switch things around in my office corner and I will probably "need" a few things. He's onto me now, I have to be more discreet about my needs. Like, a couple of weeks ago, my siste-in-law got a small, vintage sterling silver stamp roll holder for me at an auction. I LOVE it! Wonder how she knew??

  16. Such a beautiful basket! Your orchid is lovely, too. I finally have found luck with my orchid by adding a few ice cubes once a week to water. This is the first time I've had one keep growing and produce new blooms. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!
