My love of office supplies started with the humble pencil and those early days of grade school. Nothing filled me with as much excitement as buying a new pack of yellow Ticonderoga pencils and a packet of those arrowhead eraser caps. Since those days, I’ve broadened my horizons — I collect vintage pencils, American-Made, I do pencil tourism and search for pencils specifically created for unique uses.
I’ve been collecting all sorts of great pencils to review and products and ideas to share with you throughout this week. If you’re a pencil lover, hopefully, you’ll find something this week you just have to have and for those who are less pencil-savvy, maybe this week will ignite your love for pencils.
So, I hope you’all enjoy my week of pencil love. I have a feeling that the pencil love will trickle into the whole year.

YAY!! I love me some pencils 🙂
I’m a big fan of pencils, too. Aside from there practical applications, I’ve always adored the smell of a freshly sharpened pencil (or pencil crayon). Nothing whisks me back to memories of the first week of school each year as a child faster! 🙂
Wishing you a marvelous Monday & week ahead,
So stoked for Pencil Week! I spy lots of pencils from RAD AND HUNGRY STMT Kits in your photos. Yay! 🙂
I’m pretty stoked!! I teach high school and I think I’m more excited to go shopping for school supplies now than when I was in school. Of course pencils are my favorite! Your comment about getting that new pack of Ticonderogas really brings back memories. I’m showing my age but I remember how cool it was to buy that pack of Husky pencils back in elementary school.
Here is my interpretation of the pencil week:) http://www.izmircadisi.blogspot.com/2013/01/hergun-sanat-art-everyday-10.html
I don’t see any pencils from the Musgrave Pencil factory, a personal favorite
I don’t have any Musgrave pencils — yet!
I love your photos – so colourful and full of so many interesting pencils! I’ve just become interested in wooden pencils myself over the last year, so I look forward to the rest of your posts this week!
