Unusual Desk Accessories

 I was looking for something to dress up the desk my husband made me for Christmas.  I didn't like any of the usual containers found in the office supply stores.  I kept noticing cute white milk-glass containers in the thrift stores and decided to pick up a collection and put them to work. 

The tallest one holds writing utensils (pens, pencils, markers, chalk markers and a random bone folder.).  The medium one holds scissors and hole punches.  The short one holds the fabric tags I sew onto my Etsy creations. 

 I little bit of pretty makes makes it so much nicer to get down to work.

  1. Love it - of course I love EVERYTHING that you do! Where did you get your tags to put in your creations? I need those!

  2. I like that so much better than normal pen/pencil holders! Much more personality!

  3. Hi Janet,
    I bought my tags from They were recommended by a fellow Etsy crafter. I ordered the plain name labels in black and white. I didn't want the iron on type but they sell those as well. They also have nice "size" labels which would be nice for clothing.

  4. Love the crisp elegance of the white vessels!

  5. Love the milk-white containers! Who says a desk can't be beautiful! Have a great day.

  6. I absolutely love this idea! I will be stealing it, for sure!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
