Dixon Tigonderoga

Anybody remember in the movie "You've Got Mail" when they talk about bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils?

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)

Oooh! Those are some of my favorite things, too!
I was surprised (and delighted) to see you started another blog and had some new posts! ;o) You did a great job on the cards you made. One of these days... I'd love to get around to trying my hand at making cards (and scrapbooking).
Y'all sure had some cold temps. I think we were in the low 50's today. It wasn't too bad. ;o) Do y'all have snow to go with that cold weather? We had hoped to get some this past weekend with the freeze that swept the south but we didn't. Too close to the ocean, I suppose.
I hope y'all are doing well up there. ;o)

Your friend ~
