Old School

Do you remember the days before mechanical pencils were invented? The time when we had to sharpen our own pencils, leaving curls of wood and bits of sawdust all over our desks? And, if you write really hard, like me, you've probably spent most of your time fiddling with a manual sharpener, wishing you had an electric sharpener. I did and today, I got given one.Isn't it smart looking? So...retro. I love it so much I spent most of today sharpening everyone's pencils for free. Ha!

i like your retro sharpener. all those freshly sharpened pencils in all their different body paint colors look so good.

apparently, i'm a closet pencil sharpening geek. i've been getting along with the manual sharpener you talk about.

maybe one day...

thanks for your post! i enjoyed it! :D

I especially like small, handheld sharperners because I am a masochist! Hand me a box of blunt pencils and a tiny sharperner, and I'll be happily busy.
Also, I just love to watch pencil shavings twirl out from my hands' efforts...

And, it's always nice to know when's a good time to stop :)
