Say it the Anne Taintor Way

phpEoz9tqPM.jpgIf you don't dare utter that snarky comment going through your head at work, let Anne Taintor's fabulous office supplies do the talking for you--while giving your desk a sweet style boost.

Vintage images and retro graphics combined with witty, sarcastic blurbs make Taintor's impossibly cute, incredibly smart file folders, notepads, and other not-so-basic office staples irresistible.

We got the Fancy File Folders from her Modern Office Revisited line (only $12 for a pack of six!), and we can't stop oohing and ahhing. The Sticky Notes and Nifty Notepads are also on my wish list. For outside the office, I'm a fan of the stickers, passport holders, and cosmetic bags. Go to Taintor's Web site to buy me... eh, I mean yourself... a little somethin'. You can also read about the 'Taintorettes' --the models from the '30s, '40s, and '50s whose faces appear on Taintor's work--and read their fabulous life stories.

Even better, Taintor has her own great story: A single mother and cartographer searching for a way to spend more time at home with her daughter, she started her indie collage biz as a side project and eventually quit her day job. Cool lady, cool stuff.--Jax
