This is a picture of one of my favorite things: Dixon Tigonderoga #2 pencils. I love these things! Unlike most pencils you buy, these things actually sharpen without breaking. The graphite is perfectly centered so you don't get that weird lop-sided thing going. I got a new box of them this weekend and sharpened them all in my little electric sharpener. Who wants to reach for a pencil and find that it's flat?! I know, mechanical pencils are always sharp, but there's no way a box of mechanical pencils would look this beautiful on my desk.
It's the simple things that make me happy. :o)
