Vintage Plates and Cups for Home Office Desk {DIY}

I have been away from the computer and home for 24 hours. Steven and I stayed in a hotel in Manhattan for a night. I am sorry if I have not replied any email and comments on my blog posts since last Sunday. Anyway, we are home now.


I have been wanting to post this stack up vintage plates and cups to put your craft supply. And I am having difficulties to find a name for it. A long time a go I  envision of having this {let's call it a cake stand for now since you know; I love vintage cake stand very much!} to display on my home office desk if I ever have a study or working room one day. And to put craft supply or anything pretty on it. A big inspiration board hung on top of the desk would complete the whole look of this desk that I always dream about. Through these images I tried to create a mini desk with it's stationery and the stack up vintage plates and cups for you  visually. 

Right now I can only have this in my head; hoping one day it will come into a realization.

 When saw this at Marshall for the first time; immediately  thought this is a paper weight but the cashier said it is a garden decoration. It is very heavy.  Still I can not see it as garden decoration. And now it is going to be a paper weight on my desk. I think it is so adorable as paper weight and with no 3 embossed on it. Don't you think! And with it's price of USD 4.50; it is hard to pass by.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  16. Placing these vintage cups on your office desk makes me think that you love having coffee breaks. Just kidding! The vintage touch of your office desk can inspire you to be more productive in your business and work. You just have to make sure that you still have enough space at your desk so that the cups wouldn't be overpowered by all your files. :)
