hey Susan!

sorry i've been so slow to get something thru the post to you, i feel guilty, but i have got some stuff piled up, okay?

i really dug yr pkg, lots of nifty surprises contained therein!

oh, yeah, i'm nuts about vintage pencils, i love old people's houses, i flat out ask if i can look thru their junk drawers, i always find a pencil & sometimes at the junkstore you can get lucky, i've been accumulating alot of old pencils for a project i've had in my head, hopefully one day it'll finally materialize...one of the drawbacks of being a packrat is that there's so much junk that needs to come together as something, but sometimes the array gets in the way, having too much stuff & being bewildered about what to do first!

I love these photographs about
pencils

"pure" and "velvet"...

"august golf"


very fachinating...i'm happy to see this...

troylloyd sa...

yes, i like that Velvet one too...

my favorite is the "be sharp" one though, it is kind of funny...

pencils were once a high form of technology...i am happy when i draw with pencils, they have their own certain quality, also, i like to sharpen them & when i am drawing a lot, a pencil can go pretty fast!
