    My pink and black trash can. It is really a decorative flower pot with a plastic liner that contained a petite rose bush that my husband gave me for Valentine’s Day. It makes me happy every time I see it. The rose bush now lives outside in the garden and is happy, too.

    One of the last pictures taken of my parents together before they passed away. It makes me happy and sad to have it there – happy for the wonderful years we had together and sad that they are no longer here.

    My three tiered metal basket. It holds all of my most used, well loved crafting supplies. Ink pads, blending tools, adhesives, scissors, twine…things likes that.

    MelGerb says:

    Air. Seriously – the open space where nothing is allowed so that I am able to sit & papercraft any time the fancy takes me makes me happy even when I’m not using it. In a tiny house with 4 dogs & 2 teens, dedicated space is a luxury.

    My ink organizer! Love looking up and being able to find just what I need. So handy:-)

    Right now my favorite item is a big, steaming mug of coffee, but once I finish that, it would be my dual monitor set-up. I love it dearly, because I’m almost always multi-tasking. (I have Hulu running on my other monitor right now as I’m typing this).

    My six year old daughter is always making something so my desk has about 10 little things she’s made at any one time. I am always rotating them off my desk because she is constantly creating! She loves paper, glitter, drawing and making pretty things just like her Mom!

    Carol says:

    My desk at work, which I am right now is my Easter tree and light up bunny under it. My desk at home, my rotating container that holds all my copic markers, all those colors are like looking at a rainbow.

    Debbie M. says:

    A sparkly rhinestone tape dispenser with pencil holder for my go to adhesive tape and often used pencils. I love that I got it on a super clearance for .75 cents due to it had been damaged. I brought it home and repaired the missing rhinestone areas and added my bling to make it pop! It always makes me smile to know I saved this bright and cheerful little guy from being taken to the stores dumpster.

  • 32
    Sandi Roth says:

    a hand decorated juice can that holds pencils and pens that my daughter made when she was 6 or 7…it is so dear with her cute drawings and printing…she’s now 35. I treasure it and remember those days.

    I have lots of things on my desk that make me happy, photos of family and friends, colorful rolls of twine, jars of buttons, bright copic markers. But, the one thing that really makes me smile is an altered wooden candy box, made for me by one of my Chemo Angel buddies years ago. It’s so special and really cherished, every time I look at it, I remember her fondly.

    Kristie H says:

    since I’m sitting at my computer desk and have been working on taxes, there’s not much to like other than my 29 gallon aquarium with my beautiful cichlids. It’s very relaxing even while I’m working on taxes right up to the last minute.

  • 46
    Kate Temple says:

    My favorite thing sitting on my desk is my Dad’s stapler and “stamp-licker”. They are both from the 40’s and they are treasures that remind me of him. They are so special to me as I always remember seeing them on his desk :).

    My totally cheap framed picture of the Mona Lisa which reigns over my desk. When I finish a project, I look up at her…………….and sure enough, she is looking at it and smiling her approval with that strange little smirk!

  • 68
    Carol S says:

    A ribbon holder made by my lovely husband. DIY is definitely NOT his thing, but he knew I was having trouble finding something suitable, so he bit the bullet and made one just to please me. Okay, so maybe its a bit wonky but it was made with love and that’s what counts!

  • 69
    Colleen F says:

    My desk is one long counter!! I love my computer…what would I do without that? I have an angel holding a butterfly that my BFF gave me and on her dress it reads: Friends are a life long treasure! Of course my PTI stamps are sitting within arms reach in a plastic bin (actually three plastic bins!!) I do love PTI stamps!!

    Jan says:

    My favorite thing is actually the window that my desk sits up against. I get terrific light from it and I can see our pool and neighborhood lake whenever I look up. It is a view I find lovely and calming no matter what the weather is like or what time of day it is.
