Stuff

Img_4290
Clockwise from top left: Guide from the V&A Hats exhibition, Miffy paper clips, box of mini clothes pegs, pack of purple envelopes, 'to be continued' leather bookmark, pink filofax (never used), heart shaped glittery lipbalm, pack of small art deco notelets, paperchase thank you cards, spanish phrase book, pack of floral tissues I think I won in a competition from Intrinsically Florrie, Notebook from my friend Kate from New Orleans

There's nothing like a good clear out to make you realise quite how much awesome random stuff you have. Inspired by the Organised Collections flickr group I discovered via Pink Bow, this is what I found while tidying my desk drawers (possibly the new version of the traditional 'what's in my bag' post?!)

I love having clear outs, they are the best, just doing one atm as planning on having a car boot, so therapeutic and lovely when you find things you forgot you had! xxx

Nicola said...

I would be so good at this game, people often give me gorgeous notepads and stationery and I can't use them because they're just too pretty, so they go into a drawer and stay there forevermore!

Lauren said...

Nice collection friend! Reminds me that I have heaps of old shi% to sort through too - irk!

Tasha said...

I like this idea for a post! A new twist on the what's in your bag. The pack of floral tissues look super cute!

Susie said...

i love this post! I just adore all of the "what's in your bag...closet...fridge...whatever" posts. I must be a major snoop, I guess! xoxox

Uahhh, cleaning up my desk is a seriously frightening idea (and I fear there might not be that many pretty things). But yours looks like 'good stuff'.

PinkBow said...

Oh you know I love neatly laid out 'stuff'. Loved to see yours. (thanks for the link too xx)

Sherin said...

Oooo, everything looks really cool. I'm long overdue a good clear out and spring clean.

Style Eyes said...

Love your pretty stuff. The thought of clearing out my drawers terrifies me though.

Helen said...

haha 'whats in my drawers' is a terrifying thought! i have so many junk drawers it's ridiculous.

Krissy (Shimmer Like Gold) said...

Ooh, fun! I'm such a snoop and I love "what's in my bag" type posts. "What's in my drawer" sounds like a lot more fun to me (maybe that's because I have the most boring purse items ever. haha)

Lauren said...

Oooh that sounds like such a fun morning! Love the hats, back pack and brekkie goodies. Re the bloggy images, we can only try our best, eh? x

Lauren said...

That comment will sound bizzare to anyone who hadn't read your comment on my blog, lols. Ah well, we understand each other! xox

My Hideaway said...
