Office & Organization

Ah!  So, I get snowed in for three days (at work; I'm a nanny) and I lose all connection with the world.  Alas, I am back, and since getting back in my cozy little apartment Friday night, I have been catching up on phone calls, Dovetail Vintage shopping, and photographing new merchandise for the shop.  It feels good to be back in the real world again.

In my last post, I mentioned that I would be unveiling my small office nook that I have been revamping . . . actually, setting up is more accurate, since it never really functioned as an office nook before, but rather as a catchall spot for everything I didn't have a place for.  I am still finding the needed organizational pieces to make the space just right, and I may unveil the spot before all of those are in place, but I still have a few more things I want to do before I do just that.

So, with an office space and organization on my mind, I will leave you with some fabulous organizational items and office spaces that I uncovered at my much loved stores, Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware.


I have included links to each of these pages in case you are interested in purchasing or better perusing any of these items. Just click on the store name below each picture.

Note: Thru the 25th, Pottery Barn is having a sale on their office furniture and supplies.

LOVE the neutral color of these boxes with their brass hardware, and such great shapes and sizes.

The shelves look a little cluttery for me, but I dig the height of this desk - you could easily stand as well as sit - as well as there being room for two.

 Great wall organizers!  See the twine on the rolling pin - love that! . . . except for the time it would take to put it on there.  Although, it does look cool.  :)

 Mirrors?  Nope.  Large linen pin boards.  While these are cool, I want to make some!  Find a wooden or vintage frame and cover cork in burlap, canvas, or linen and mount it inside the frame to get this look.

Great office accessories that will always get use.

Hope your weekend was wonderful and that the start to your week goes smoothly!
