Pretty Paper Weights

Updated on October 19, 2014

Paper Weights - Pretty and Practical

Even though we are moving towards a paperless society with more and more electronic billing, mail, news, and social communication, we still seem to accumulate lots of papers every week; at least I do.

So I feel that a paper weight is a great thing to use to keep those papers in check. And a pretty paper weight can add a touch of decor anywhere in your home or office, even if there is no paper underneath it! For these reasons, a paper weight makes a nice gift too. The heart paperweights I have below can make a great and romantic Valentine's Day gift or on any occasion to say I Love You in a unique way.

Please take a look at the paperweights below - the right one may be right here

      These are really pretty glass paperweights. I have a few but never use them to hold paper down. :-)
