Daily Thought Wallpaper

June 19, 2008

This isn’t a Real Simple plug because I freelance for them, they certainly do not need me to sing their praises, but I was on the site this morning and stumbled across some pretty Daily Thought Wallpaper (19 total). They’re inspirational and free so why not show and tell?

Real Simple has some of the best magazine covers and these wallpapers look to be from past issues, each comes with a nice thought like my favorite above by Helen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Here’s the link in case you’d like to pretty up your office today.

    I really love these too, I have “Confidence is a plant of slow growth” on my home computer. These wallpapers and the magazine covers are always so clean and pretty, they make me feel more organized!

    My favorite one is here on Ruth Parson’s ‘desktop profile’

    The idea of having a photo of a real desktop for a wallpaper is too cleverly cute.

    I’ve been using these for a while now, and I love them! I’ve also gotten positive comments from co-workers too. One thing that’s especially nice is that they have season-specific ones, so I can change them out to get me excited for whatever time of year it is.

    I added a Real Simple background to my computer at work last month and have loved it. I chose Abigail Adams quote about patience and perseverance. Two things I could really use more of around 4:40 p.m.

    I just downloaded the Abagail Adams quote. I like how the tidy row of books tricks me into thinking my desk is somewhat organized :)

    Oh what a great idea! I love Real Simple and often hang up their quote pages…this is even better. I will share this on my blog as well if you don’t mind?

    I’ve been getting quite a bit of wallpaper info from “to the trade” publications… it looks a lot better then the “old” wallpaper.
