O Pencil Tree!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree…

The ornaments are vintage mini mechanical pencils, about 2 inches long on average.  Most of them are “golf pencils” that could be used for marking golf scores, and many have little tassels attached.

Happy Holidays, and may the New Year bring you many more of whatever you collect!

    Thank you for sharing the lovely tree, Fred!
    We did ours with vintage brand name “stubbie” woodcased pencils, and we are enjoying it very much. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

  2. This is, in a word, awesome. Love it, and love the pencils. I like the celluloid and other materials used in a lot of these, but never buy them because I’d want to use a mechanical pencil and these are too short for comfort. But this just blows that concern right out of the water.
