Ultimate Desk Companions

Lancelot - sitting pretty on the window sill.

Yesterday I looked around my office and realised that I have amongst the usual office issue, a couple of interesting knick-knack I’ve collected or have received as gifts. They somehow give me a sense of ownership of my desk and all that is on it. In a strange kind of way they give me a sense of myself.

What is a knick-knack? I went into Google searching for the definition and the closest I can get to the meaning is from these two definitions given by The Free Dictionary by Farlex. 1. “It is a cheap ornament or trinket” and 2. “an ornamental article of furniture, dress, etc.”. Well mine were reasonably cheap but not tacky.

Paper weight...

My desk has the usual office stuff – a computer, a telephone, a desk calendar, a stapler, a paper puncher, paperclips, books, in-tray and out-tray, folders name it. I have it. But I regard the knick-knack as my desk companions. We belong together.We have a reciprocal relationship.

Legendary noble helper of the financially challenged...

Generally speaking, I think knick-knack say something about the person who owns them. Well, perhaps mine do say something about me. Interesting thought.

Soon, without a doubt, I will take my knick – knack with me when I clean up my desk to move on to another job or relocate somewhere else. After all we belong together – the ultimate desk companions.

  1. Good morning PV, thanks for the compliment. Glad you like them. Comforting to have them around – adds to my personal space at my workstation.
