Real People, Real Office Organization {Vintage Toast Racks}

How cute are all these vintage toast holders as mail organizer? Check out Ebay and Etsy for some fabulous vintage treasure!

One of the things I love the most from my desk is to have all my personal stationary and Thank you cards organized in a silver toast rack I bought many years ago in Spain... not only add a whimsical touch to it but it's a constant reminder to write personal notes, a detail that still today goes a long way!! I might even get one for my bills after spotting some cute ones while searching for this post!

Hope you had a gorgeous Monday!

How funny! I spent part of the weekend thumbing through past issues of Domino magazine when I came across tips on how to setup a mail center (the exact one from your second photo!) and marked the page as a future project. The article used a corner of the kitchen counter as a mail center, I'll be using the console in my entryway. Your post however has made me think of adding a second one to house all of my stationary, great way to organize my Kate Spade notecards!

Thank you SO MUCH for including links to buy, because I'm about to purchase one right now.
