Collections: Lucky Clover Pencil Box
One little bird, down home amy, and the Room6 blog. Oh and then this little post from On a secret mission about 2 canadian bloggers, one being myself and one being the very talented Arounna from bookou. It's made my week start out with a smile!
So here is another little glimpse into some of my hand-me-down art supplies. This wooden pencil case- a lucky pencil case with all the 4 leaf clovers around it, was passed on to me by my great-aunt. It's kind of the perfect case for Ink nibs and pens, don't you think?
I have a pen pal- I really should say 'had' because I'm notoriously bad for writing her back now, but I have had a pen pal from Germany since I was in grade 3. We kept in touch all these years, she visited me when we were in grade 12 and I visited her in Stuttgart about 8 years ago. I still have all her letters to me- most of which are in german, all of which were written with a real ink pen. I'm quite certain it's my turn to write and so I think this might be a good place to start. But where to start when it's been so long...
