Has there ever been a fashion accessory more perfectly aligned to the readers of The Well-Appointed Desk than the Art Gang Scarf by Karl James Mountford? At 55″ square and made from microfiber polyester, this scarf can double as a cover up or even as a coverlet as demonstrated by my darling pal Sara Harvey over on her blog, Bleed in Colors. The scarf costs $35 and can be shipped in time for Christmas. So, if you were trying to think of a last-minute gift for me… this is it! 😉
Sometimes, the stars align and my in-box is full of tips related to one specific topic. This week, it seemed to be all things pencIl-related. So, I thought I’d share my finds.
This darling little pencil twig topped with a big pink eraser “mashmallow”. Perfect for fireside doodles. $13.99 from Animi Causa.
Then I found this beautiful hand dyed yarn from Yarn Enabler on Etsy that will stripe as you knit to make these awesome pencil socks. Yellow pencil stitch markers are also available as part of the kit. Yarn kit with stitch markers are $30.69US.
And my last pencil-related find this week is a darling little children’s book called Little Red Writing by Joan Holub and illustrated by Melissa Sweet about “a brave, little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000).” $12.75 on Amazon.
Oh yes, you can do a perfect french manicure using reinforcement dots. Need I say more?
