Vintage flower frogs will leap at the opportunity to perform new tasks. Here, a mismatched duo does a fine job of organizing a desktop. The stem holes in the ceramic frog enable it to hold pens and pencils. The steel version of a needle mountain is equally helpful in straightening business cards, notes, and photos.

I have 2 green frogs like the one pictured on the left. I use them - surprise! - to hold up flowers in vases. I can't imagine putting them on my desk...those tips are SHARP. :)

I am the antique collector in the family, but my little sister taught me to use the glass frogs to hold make-up brushes on the vanity years ago.

Finally, one thing I thought of that Martha thought of! I am using a clear glass frog for my pens on my desktop now. It does work really well.

While all these ideas have a great purpose on a desk, the steel version of a flower holder may be dangerous to children touching the needles. The points on these needles are "razor sharp".

YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO USE THE STEEL ONE IF IT IS SOMETHING YOU WILL BE TOUCHING EVERYDAY. MOST HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF LEAD IN THEM. THE LAST ONE I BOUGHT WAS FROM MICHAELS AND CAME WITH A LEAD WARNING ON THE BACK

I just bought a Secretary this weekend and oddly enough it doesn't have the little drawers behnd the fold down writing surface....it just has shelves. So this will be a great way to hold a few special writing instruments. I loved the ornate carving on the outside so much I was willing to compromise on not having little drawers inside. It's 8 ft tall and has ample storage drawers and shelves.
