Prettifying My Desk With Etsy!

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good weekend!

So, the lovely folks at Etsy UK got in touch with me and invited me to Dress My Desk with their #EtsyDeskie challenge.  They kindly sent me a voucher so I could choose some pretty and practical items to spruce up my work area, which was, quite frankly, the sort of challenge I love!  

I had lots of fun browsing the many shops for bits and bobs to adorn my desk with.  As you know, I can't resist a bit of vintage Royal memorabilia, especially old tins in faded pastel colours, so I was delighted when I found these two Queen Elizabeth tins, perfect for using as a pen pot and for hiding away paperclips.  Every desk needs a pretty paperweight, I've used this one to keep my business cards organised.  Washi tape and luggage labels are always useful to have for gift wrapping - I've decorated some of my labels by adding strips of pretty tape.

I'm going to have to watch the paperweight, as my daughter has a little collection herself - I think she has her eye on this one already!
