Pencil me in

My save the date for Miss Branch's upcoming nuptials arrived in my lonely little mailbox today. And knowing Ginny, they're not just any save the dates, but personalized pencil saves the dates, to boot! I freaking love this girl, so witty and sweet and charming!

(Shh... I already took one before she sent them out, so now I have two.)


New pencils are such a morale booster, especially when they have your name on them (see exhibit A and B).

My favorite "pencil design" website has over 40 pencil color options to keep me busy for hours, because, lord knows, there's nothing else I should be doing.

  1. Adorable!

    I got my postcard today and it made me grin from ear to ear! I never realized you read my blog; I'm awfully flattered. I was trying to tell my husband about you a couple weeks ago (I have a cousin going to Wellesley next year and your Wellesley Women post was on my mind), and I think he tuned me out because I was talking about blogs again. But anyway, I think you're cool and I'm so jealous of the Emerson Family Heirlooms; I'm a total nut for that sort of thing.

  2. How odd. I was just, this very evening, musing to myself about pencils and came across this: http://tiny.cc/nZIF5

  3. That pencil site is deeply addicting, but in a very nice way :)

  4. Kate- I love your blog! I'm not a very practiced cook so I'm always copying off of you. Like the brussel sprout overload, I was right there behind you, overstocking my fridge with them.

    You have saved me many a time!

  5. And I hate hate hate those erasers that just smear crumbly pink across the page.

    These pencils, I can safely guarantee, do not do that!

  8. how cute!!! for my friend's save the date, she did a mock photobooth/film strip magnet thing which I thought was pretty cute, but these pencils are so dreamy. I never use pencils (I'm a strictly black-ballpoint pen kinda girl) but I love all things personalized. I'm off to look at that website...

  11. At the same time, the book begins with the introduction which provides a view from under the sink that means that the author attempts to show the real life of the poor from their standpoint. In the first chapter, the author analyzes the roots of the socioeconomic inequality in the South as a cause of the further problems of the local population and interracial and social conflicts. order custom essay writing service
