Chef’s Pencil Set

I’ve never really been the Etsy addict that so many of you are. Occasionally I’d see something cute that other friends had purchased online but I never really took the time to scour the store for one-of-a-kind finds. That is until recently. In the last three months I’ve started to impulse shop on Etsy like it’s my job.

Case in point: this adorable Chef’s Pencil Set from Paper Pastries. Did I need any pencils? No. Do I even own a pencil sharpener? No, although perhaps I can sharpen them with my eyeliner sharpener? Do I ever write with a Pencil? Not since I filled in those little bubbles on annoying standardized tests in High School. So why did I feel the overwhelming need to buy these? Who knows… In the end they’re cuter than cute so does it really matter? I think not.

Obviously I don’t need any extra encouragement but I’d love to hear about some of your favorite Etsy finds and sellers. Don’t worry CK — I’ll do my best not to give my credit card too much of a workout.

I found tons of great wedding stuff there…including my veil and our ceremony programs! The veil was fabulous, from Rohm!

Love the pencils – looks perfect as a stocking stuffer come Christmas time. I’m not much of an Etsy shopper either, but you’re right, there’s so much cute stuff to be found there.

Those are actually really cute. I don’t write much with pencils these days either but I’m tempted!

I’m so a sucker for etsy. I’m really obsessed with these dishes:

Although Lorena doesn’t seem to sell them on etsy anymore and interestingly Crate and Barrel seems to have a knock off version:

Love those pencils! I’ve recently opened a small shop on Etsy with my daughter and as a result have found waaaaay too much stuff that I just HAVE to have one of these days. I like the idea of supporting local folks, even if they’re not local geographically, most are just struggling artists like us.

Love, love these! What a great find. Will look into them right now…
