WOYWW 111

Only a flying visit to Julia and the WOYWW Gang today as I just got back from work and i'm cream crackered, I'll be hopping round desk over the weekend.
But I wanted to quickly share the fab package of goodies that I just picked up from the post office..
After seeing Candy's little haul of vintage pencil sharpeners, I just knew I had to have some, so I went on a mad ebay hunt and managed to find these little beauties. {P.S I still have more to come as I went a little bid crazy lol} Aren't they just the coolest thing EVER lol
Now I will finally have some cool things to add to my configuration box projects!
Right gotta love ya and leave ya, My bed is calling me!
See ya soon, Until then..
Stay Inky

I know the feeling about being ready for bed. Me too. I'm in love with those pencil sharpeners. They are a bit like my rocking horse pencil sharpener, only yours seem to have a theme.

I'd love to know what you will do with them - I bet you can't leave them like that - or can you?!!

Oh wow, I used to have one of those, a little cash register. I'd forgotten all about it! And what a good idea to use them in configurations boxes, hope we'll get to see some.
