What's on your desk?

I like looking at other people’s desks and seeing how they keep them organized.  I recently updated mine.

We recently got a new tv as the other one was not working all of the time.

The thing is though, the old tv is still working… it just takes a few minutes to warm up.  So we didn’t want to just get rid of it.

Then a lightbulb went off!

How about… a GIANT monitor for my laptop! Brilliant!!

giant tv as a computer monitor! GENIUS!

 Now for a desk tour.  I have some pictures of cats and dogs painted in front of Parisian store fronts.

My ipad mini, iphone, and glasses…

My cute monogrammed kleenex box cover I got in St. Helena over in Napa valley!

 My new Royal Crown Derby donkey sits on my desk

Pen and paper always out to jot down notes

Tiffany silver pen!

The thing I hate most about my desk is my chair.  It is soooo ugly. I’m not even sharing a picture of it.

I need a new desk chair. Maybe this one…

Ballard Designs Louis XVI Desk Chair

Or maybe just a regular French chair.

Some day I want to get a partner’s desk instead so my husband and I can sit across from each other.

However, an antique partner’s desk would be preferred!

    Using the tv as a big screen is genius. I think your desk looks fabulous and definitley neat. I use the buffet in our breakfast area, so I don't really have a desk. Thanks for linking to Inspire Me.

      I wanted to downsize my desk… but then I put this big tv on it.

    I love the animal prints with the Paris theme, so cute and different. Dawn
