Blue Monday - Pencils

It's Blue Monday! Come join the fun.

Please place the blue bird logo at the top of your post so that others easily find your Blue Monday post. Remember to place the link for Blue Monday; much as I hate to, I will DELETE those who do not follow this simple rule.

To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS or check out the instructions in my sidebar.

If you visit other Blue participants, they will return the favor.

This was sent to me in an email, and I simply had to share with you. Can you believe it? These are just pencils!

Don't you agree that the blue sets it off?

I'm back, I justlooked at your post again ... I cannot imagine gluing those pencils together ... I'm afraid they'd just be a pile of pencils! :) Jenn

helenabelle said...

At first glance I thought I was looking at some sort of hybrid sunflower!! That is an amazing work of art and yes the blue certainly does set it off. :) Wonder how all those pencil tips (I am assuming it is just the tips)stay together??
Thanks for posting and sharing it, just great.
Have a wonderful week.

Morning, Most Blue One! Oh, now this is actually a little creepy looking. I thought it was one of the creatures from the sea for a moment! Someone just has too much time on their hands I think! Hope you're doing well and will come to my party Friday.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Good morning Sally, I accidentally posted the wrong post the first time if you would please remove it. #57 is the wrong one. It had my old url link in the space. Love the flower made from pencils. Now that took a lot of time and thought.

Yes, the blue does set it off nicely. I wouldn't want to fall on that, though, with all those other pointed ends sticking up!!

LV said...

The pencil arrangement is certainly different and interesting. I never saw anything like that. Someone spent a lot of time on it.

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I have wanted to call you this week and it has flown by. I am not playing bridge this week but I have been outside most of the day planting some flowers. I just came in after just planting two. I have 3 more to go for this project. Mostly I had to dig out weeds. Ugh! That is the hardest job.

Anyway, I can say hello on your blog and tell you that I posted something you might like to see. Come over if you have a moment.

I hope you are feeling well today.
Will you be home in the morning?

Hugs, Jeanne

sara said...

oh my word that is so cool!!! I just wonder how someone thinks something like that up?!

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

This is great Miss Sally. I spent over thirty years in the classroom and have seen many things done with pencils but oh my gosh this is amazing! I love it!

Thanks and have a beautiful 'Blue Monday' sweetie!!!

The Quintessential Magpie said...


Just dropping in to say, "HI" and that I miss you. Life has been a wild ride of late, and I'm going to be traveling home today after being down here for various things. I hope this note finds you doing better. BTW, I have a surprise for you, and I've got to get it to you. I don't know when I will be back down, but when I come, I would love to drive over and see you if that would be okay. It might be the first of June (unless we get back for Cecelia's recital).

Love those pencils. I used to read a blog that showcased pencil art. People can do some amazing things, can't they?

Love you...


Sheila :-)
