Cleaning Martha's Desk

Posted by Sharkey

Well, yesterday we blogged about smashing the giant chocolate bunny and if that wasn’t enough, I was given another task of cleaning and organizing Martha’s desk.  Martha’s desk is right in the kitchen and since that’s where we, Frenchies, hang out, I didn’t really mind too much.  After all, we’re the ones who have to look at it all day.

Sanu, I have taken on the task of cleaning Martha's desk and it's no small job, so thanks for helping me.

Martha uses these fancy silver mint julep cups to hold her pens and pencils.  This Wright's Silver Cream sure does a great job of making silver gleam!

And this divided brass tray, probably from India or some other faraway land, holds many small objects on her desk.  Oops!  I think we missed a spot!

Let's polish and wash it one more time.  It must be perfectly perfect!

Spare change from all over the world!  Martha sure gets around!  I'm a French bulldog and I've never even been to France!  Maybe I'll use this money to charter a plane.

This pile looks like a mess!  Push pins, safety pins, paper clips, and screws!  It's time to organize.

These are some serious looking clips, which Martha uses to hold all of  her new book galleys together.  I can't even count how many new Martha Stewart books keep passing through this kitchen.

Oh boy!  A pile of paper clips!  Do you dare me to chain them together?  Wouldn't that be just maddening?  I'm tempted.

There!  All back together and won't she be thrilled?

And now to organize the pens.  Martha really like the LePen brand, which has a smooth writing micro-fine plastic point and a sleek barrel design.  Plus, the ink is acid free and non-toxic.

In fact, every time Martha goes to a new book signing for all of those books that keep passing through this kitchen, she always signs with a LePen.

You know that she signs hundreds of books at each signing and she says that this particular pen is easy on the hand joints.  I prefer a stamp pad, myself.

  • Sharkey you are such a sweetie to help Martha out cleaning her desk up. Still, Francesca and GK could have at least offered to give you a helping paw. :wink:

    Leave it to MommyM to keep everyday items in unique containers. Photo # 14 is the best - don't mess with teh Sharkster! :lol:

  • Sharkey I'm sitting at my mom's desk right now and it sure could use some organizing. The problem is dad, mom cleans it all up and he comes along and makes a mess. She has an L shaped desk and dad is suppose to stay on his side but he always ends up on mom's side. Maybe I'll lend a paw and help her this weekend, that is a good rainy day project.

    I have to go now, mom has a sales meeting and needs to feed me before she leaves. Have a great day :)

  • Hello Ladies,
    It really should be just hello to Sharkey as those other two lazy bums are elsewhere--hopefully working also. You really have the spring cleaning bug Sharkey. Mama should give you lots of treats and new fluffy pillows to rest those tired paws on.You are doing a marvelous job. Keep up the good work.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    So nice of you to help with the cleaning Sharkey. I’ll bet everyone else was busy cleaning some other place in the house. Well maybe not all; those cats were most likely sleeping again. It’s cool this morning so I took my walk. Now that I’ve had my breakfast, it’s time for a nap. And no, I’m not a cat.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Oh Sharkey Sparkey can you come to my house and clean my desk drawer? I just cleaned all the kitchen drawers...holy-moly I have a lot of stuff! Good dog for helping out.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Sharkey, Sharkey, Sharkey!!! You are one terrific helper with everything there at Martha's farm! Everything we get to see looks perfect and you have a lot to do with it! I know Franny and G.K. do a lot, also but it's fun to see what each one of you does by yourselves. I'm sure Martha is very proud of all of you for all you do for her! How nice of Sanu to help you clean Martha's desk! It looks terrific! Keep up the great work! Hope everyone has a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
