Pretty Pencils and Other Ramblings

January 8, 2014


While the polar vortex swirled outside, a polar vortex also swirled around in my head. For the past five days, I was pretty content to curl up in the warmest corner of the bed with my book, some grapefruit juice, and lots of Kleenex. Neither Mark nor I starved, but I don’t really remember what was cooked at any point over the weekend. Besides tea.

But the good thing about winter colds is that they give you lots of time for Pinterest. I didn’t really get Pinterest before, but now I am basically a Pinterest guru. Also, I explored Etsy fairly thoroughly. Let me tell you, there are a LOT of cute things to buy online post-Christmas. It’s a little problematic.

And now, because it’s January and cold and boring and we all could use a little color and cheeriness in our lives (even if you aren’t battling a sinus infection), here are some of the cutest pencils that the Internet has to offer.
