figurine--prosperityfrogIf you’re going to spend a ton of time working at your desk, don’t you think you should spice it up a bit to make it a happier place? I DO!

Frames with family photos, colorful sticky notes, cute file folders, little ceramic frogs. Wait….what? Frogs?  Yes, frogs.

Let me be clear though – this is no ordinary frog. This is a Prosperity Frog. According to the package….

The Japanese believe that keeping a frog where you spend money will cause the money to return to you. The Chinese believe that frogs are good luck in money-making ventures and often keep them on their desks. This prosperity frog bestows good fortune and luck wherever he goes. Find a special place for him in your home or office and enjoy increased wealth and success.

Now, I’m not wealthy by any stretch but I will say that when this cute little frog landed on my desk a year or so ago, things started to click in that area a little more than in the past. Just sayin’.

I found Froggy at a pottery shop in Grand Central called Our Name is Mud. Sadly the shop is now gone (thanks to our lovely economy!) but luckily you can still get the goods online at http://ournameismud.com.  

While you’re there, check out Froggy’s friend Timeless Turtle — a symbol of good health and longevity!

At only $8 plus shipping, these are both cheap and easy ways to make someone smile. And who doesn’t need that?
