Back to School Inspirations: from pencils to food for your thoughts

back to school inspirations :: pencils :: jams :: fabric hoop bulletin boards

I am ending my day as I started it: with some quick links. This time, they are all connected to back to school.

+ the top left image shows you how you can use vintage boxes and every day containers to carry around your pens and pencils – via Sarah’s loft.

+ for breakfast or to give you energy with an oolong tea, enjoy some Jam Butters and Buttermilk Biscuits via Sunday Suppers

A Pencil Collection for Artists

After seeing those pictures, you may be tempted to start collecting 500 color pencils by Social Designer. Made from China, the pencils would be shipped from Japan.

collect display 500 pencils

Unique and luxurious display units are available. I like their originality. A wall of 500 neatly stored pencils that are organized by colors looks awesome. The storage cases vary in prices from $41.50 to $260. The flower vases and the Aurora wall units (not shown) are the 2 most expansive.

      I updated the links. The 500 pencil displays were submitted for a design exhibit in Tokyo. They were available for a while but are now sold out. I do not think that they are still available. Sorry!
