You know what they say about all work and no play. Luckily for me, I love to do this particular kind of work.
I've been obsessed with custom pencils since Little Winter. I thought the custom pencils were such a sweet touch, and I wish I had taken one for myself as a memento (I did, however, take a few of the pencils from the Ace Hotel). I didn't have much luck finding a company that would ship a small quantity of custom hex pencils to Canada, though. Recently Matt posted a picture of the pencils he got for Wood & Faulk, which are so nice. I started up my search again, and this time was successful. We got these in the mail the other day and I love them! Part of me wonders who would want a pencil with the name of our company ("company") on it, but if you want one, they shall be found in the gift bags that will be given to the first 25 shoppers who attend Love & Rummage tomorrow.
Tomorrow! I hope to see you there.
(I so adore her dress. The scalloped sleeves are beaded.)
K a i t l y n: Thank you!
CARLY WAITO: Ha! I hope you have the CD or mp3 files at least!
Elise / Pennyweight: Thank you! I hope you get one.
alyson: From the sounds of it, not the only one at all!
Madeline: Oh wow, that is amazing!
Yulia: Ha! Yes, they turn up in the funniest places, usually stuck in rugs or wool blankets!
annie R: Ha! That is so amazing! What a great story, and thanks for the moral. We keep the jar away from our cats, and will be sure to continue to do so.
andrea littlebighead: Thank you!
in dreams: Sweet! So glad you'll be coming!
Tana: Thank you!
erin: Oh wow, thanks for that!
vanessa: Yes, they really are! They're pretty rare around here, sadly, but always savoured. Look, I included an Oreo picture this time! Poor girl, she's been sulky since the new addition. They still don't get along, but we're hoping that once Pony is spayed she'll calm down a little and Oreo will grow to like her.
erica-knits: Yay, see you tomorrow!
Caitlin: Thank you, that's a very sweet compliment!
Beth: Cool, thanks for the tip! I wouldn't buy one at UO anyhow, ha. I never think to go to Criminal, but I'll try it.
Darcy: Thank you! That's such a sweet thing for you to say. And thanks for the record player advice!
danica: Thank you! I hope you get your snow day one day! That's pretty funny about Nana Mouskouri! I'd love to see someone make her a style icon.
Miss Moss: Oh, amazing! I hope you can get it fixed and that you can start building up your LP collection -- can't think of anything better!
Sarah: Thank you!
WSAKE: They are, but they've been bleached or dyed. I got them from a seller called Plumelle on Etsy! I thought they were so striking!
Lucy: Oh, I know, they feel like little treasures!
If Jane: Thank you!
t a n y a: Please do say hello! I'm shy too but I'm getting better -- I've had to get better!
stephanie renee: Yes! We had one in our room at the Ace which is what made me think I should like to have one at home.
Moorea Seal: Thank you, but that's crazytalk! I don't think I'm that good, ha!
teacup adventure: Thank you. It didn't turn out quite how I wanted, but it gives one the idea!
Alexa: So amazing! Thank you for the link!
darbie: Yes! Very wise.
TRICOT ROUGE: Aw, I can't wait to build my collection back up again (slowly)!
