a desk just for me

hi and a happy Friday to all!
here's a little desk makeover i've been meaning to show you for a while!
the plan was to hit IKEA up for a cute desk that would slot in next to the daybed in our study.
But, as luck would have it, i found this sweet vintage desk on the side of the road!
and it is THE perfect size for where i want it to go.
and. it's. mine.
no. i'm not sharing.
i'm over my things going missing, and my desk space getting messed up
by "nobody".
So i now have my own happy corner of the study. just for me!
and it's all set up with everything i need.
old window (markets), aqua map(Frankie magazine), yummy hand cream(David Jones), birdy notelets(TYPO),
flowers, shells and sand in a vintage jar, sitting atop
a stack of vintage books (beach and markets).

my beautiful "thankyou for making my quilt" tulips from my Kace x
special vintage knobs from my Granny painted aqua.
scented drawer liners. essential for getting rid of that 'old musty' smell
that comes with most old furniture.
i needed a new mouse pad, and found this in TYPO!
just the right colour too ;)
