When it comes to office supplies and accessories, I have a weakness for fun, funky and chic paper clips. (So does Lili.) That’s why my brain exploded when I discovered what paper clips looked like in the Victorian era. CplusE, yours was the only correct answer.

Isn’t the plumage and beak detailing on this duck impressive? If you’re thinking about starting a collection, this water fowl paper clip  Ialso  found on Trocadero would make a stunning companion.

Do you have a soft spot for chic office accessories or elegant Victorian-era designs?

    Then I discovered this alligator staple remover, the perfect complement to the stapler:

    Now I can't stop finding similarly reptilian desk accessories:

    Somebody stop me, please! Thank goodness most of them are a bit too pricey for me to seriously consider starting a collection!
