Desk accessories


It is indeed, no doubt there, the "Holiday Season". And yet, between party planning, Christmas shopping, card sending, appointment making, (with those specialists who "should" make me look as if all of this is as easy as un, deux, trois), I do have a little work to do. And so, as I am slowly moving down my interminable to-do list, I cannot but notice the wonderful objects and the containers of myriads of smaller objects on my desk; they are indispensable to the day-to-day running of my professional occupation, there, not only to charmingly crowd my desktop, but actually, to attempt to help things move along in an efficient, organized, and consequently, much more pleasant manner. Here are a few of my favorite ones .
