Vintage Desktop Organizing 101

Since I can't get enough of my new Wall Organizer, I'm kind of sharing it again today! But only sorta-kinda. Because today I'm just highlighting some of the fun stuff I turned into little desktop organizing solutions.
If you saw my Wall Organizer post, you already saw how I used an old jar for a pencil holder and a little-bit-rusty bulldog clip as a magnet on a chippy hinge.

You already saw this cute little fluted tin that holds the chalk for the chalkboard file pockets I made. And the vintage ruler box that holds a stack of post-it notes and a few rubber bands.

But I have a few more goodies to show you.
Some things I've picked up here and there that I thought you might want to see.
How about a little vintage bottle holding paperclips?
And this wonderful Frigidaire ice cube tray I'll use for holding even more littles? Isn't it fantastic?

I found these tiny little jam jars with rusty lids at the store where we have our booth. I wasn't sure they were going to fit in the ice cube slots but, sure enough, they did! Now I wish I had purchased a few more.
And just check out the patina on that ice cube tray!!

And then there's this old matchbook holder. I got it because I thought it might be the perfect size for business cards. And it is! :)

Just a few fun accessories to go with my new wall organizer.
Now, I just need to figure out where in the world to actually fit a desk in my house! Oh the joys of living in cramped quarters! :)
