A Pencil is a pencil … unless you’ve got a sharp knife …

…and LOTS of spare time. Then you might just come up with some of these imaginative items ...

                                             A colorful alphabet … A to Z carved from lead.
 
 
…or a hanging link one like this …complete with the date and place of origin. Was it 1987 … or 1887?

…or how about intertwining hearts,  obviously lovingly carved by a person with a romantic bent ...     
 

… who might also have carved this one !
Or my favorite … proving that beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I remember seeing these before. I was in awe then and I still am!
Can't imagine having that much time to do something like, well, like any of them. Just amazing!
Thanks for sharing, Ginnie.

What a unique assortment, Ginnie, and I was wondering where you found the picture and is there an accompanying story behind this pencil alphabet?
