Desk Organization

Hello,

I seriously can't believe it has been since December since I have posted anything?!?! Where does the time go? I was stunned when I looked at my blog and saw a Christmas post on the front, I'm not going to bore you with the reasons why I have not been here, just the usually been busy with other priorities! I keep trying to make goals with this blog, to post on certain days, or every other day, 3 times a week, etc.... It never seems to work out so I am just stating now I will try to post at least once a week, it can be any day. Now that it is summer I feel I can balance working full time and blogging once a week. I have a lot of fun posts coming!

Anyways to get on with the business of today which is my desk organization. I love to have a space that makes me happy I mean who doesn't? I recently cleared my whole desk area and took things that I already had around my house and added them to my desk space to just make it more fun.

Firstly I love this desk I scored at a thrift shop for only $50, it was a dark wooden color when I got it, and I had really been wanting a nice white desk, so I just bought some paint, and painted it. I just love the style, and especially love the big drawer in the middle to house things.


 
Everything that I have decorated my desk with were items that I already owned and got for very inexpensive prices! I am obsessed with owls right now and have been for awhile, on my bookcase in our living room I have a few owl d├ęcor pieces on there, I had this one down there as well but thought it would look cute on my desk, and it does! The owl I bought from Michaels probably over a year ago, but they also have cute items like this in there home section. I also have a silver candle holder with a vanilla candle which are from Ikea. Then I like to keep my planner on my desk when it's not in my purse, for when I need to right dates down and such.
 

 
The of course we have my computer, I remember way back in the day when I was a little girl desk top computers were the thing, then everyone got laptops including myself, and then when I saw these new desktop computers I was all over it, I love that it is an all-in-one, so there is no big bulky tower and monitor, its very sleek, and I love it. I still have my laptop for easy accessibility. I also just have a wireless keyboard and mouse because the one's that came with it were awful and had cords. I hate cords! On the right side of my desk I keep a mason jar candle from Bath & Body works, I believe this one is in frosted cupcake. I also have a very old picture of my kitty when we first got him, he was so tiny, and finally some fake flowers I picked up from the dollar store, in a white case I got from Goodwill.

 
The last touch which brings everything together are these two mirrors above my desk that I scored from Target awhile back on clearance, they are only a little over $5 a piece! I just love them so much, and they fit perfectly with my theme!
 
I hope you all enjoyed this, do you have a desk organization post, send me the link I just love owing over fun desk tops!
