pretty pencils

miniature art always amazes me. i love tiny things. the lulu bird posted about these fun pencils the other day, and i fell madly in love. at first i didn't realize that there was anything at the top...i just thought they were colorful pencil stubs displayed in a row. but wowzers, i scrolled down and there was an itsy bitsy hammer carved perfectly into the top of one of the lead pencils! it was a delightful surprise, to say the least. =]

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
