. . . there is a vintage sterling silver serviette holder on my desk {below}, that is used for favourite photographs, letters, invitations, and gold foil-lined envelopes; however with a change in season and a brand new month, aside from the overwhelming desire to throw open every french door and window, there are also thoughts of redoing, perhaps repainting, but most of all, reorganizing, and at this moment {besides the closets} it is the office, currently overflowing with letters, cards, bills, receipts and recent boarding passes . . . and the serviette holder, however lovely, can only hold so much, so perhaps a silver vintage toast rack {beautiful and practical} may be just the thing . . .

. . . and if you ever find yourself roaming about the antique markerts early one saturday morning, in paris, or otherwise, a latte in hand a boyfriend in tow, you'll most likely find a wonderful array. . . and of course, for those quiet moments on weekday mornings, there is always a vast assortment online, from etsy, {here}, and ebay, {here} . . .

The second one is my favorite. The golden design is too luscious. I must invest in one!

God Bless You!! I saw the 4th pic posted on another blog and fell in LOVE. Sadly, there was no source attached to it. And who knew they were called toast racks? Learn something new and beautiful everyday with your blog. Thank you!

I feel so silly! I've always seen those toast racks when out thrifting and not bought them because I had no idea what they were!!

pintsizedinfluence -- happy to help :) and yes, they are called toast racks because they were originally meant for serving slices of toast, but now work equally well as a chic organizer for bills and personal correspondence x

I wanted to say that I love your blog. The beauty is inspiring! I used one of your ideas for my boring apartment and hung my necklaces on my wall so that I have a display and decoration around the mirror. :-)

Reminds me of a collection of antique silver we featured recently. The collector mentioned she uses her toast racks as letter holders, and had tips for other pieces that can serve double duty too. Just in case you're interested:
