    I am just in love with that broccoli letter holder and humongous pencil sharpener cup!

    Love that Brocade magazine file! One of my favorite office organizers is Envelopments’ Roll-O-Decks – kind of old school, but beautiful!

      ooh, love that rolodeck, thanks!

  3. Oh wow, this is lovely! Hehe, and we chose the same file organizer in our ‘desktop’ office posts! :) http://bit.ly/chS2wM

    Some super cute options here.

    nice round up. FYI – mylifescoop in general is not so great – the advertisements are too intrusive.

    Those cute little magnetic birdies… yep. SUPER IRRITATING after a while! I had to move, and it chirped all the way to our next place from it’s position in the moving box. ;) There is NO way to turn that little guy off. They chirp when tipped and if on an unsteady surface, they will be chirping a LOT.

    Lovely lovely office supplies! Great finds. That magnetic bird is the cutest!

    grace, not sure if it’s just me, but your images look like they get cut off on the right side of the mylifescoop page

    otherwise, thanks for the scoops!

  9. I really love the conscious effort made to make desk supplies look hip and up-to-date. The colors really pop and the designs are great.

  10. These items actually make me want to work.;0) It’s always a great idea to have your workspace look pretty. It motivates us whether we know it or not. Thank you for posting such unique finds that are economical. I always look forward to your posts.
