Saturday Photo Hunt #8 - Wooden



The Photo Hunter theme this week is Wooden. The very first thing I though of when I saw the theme was my old collection of pencil sharpeners. I have about 100 of them, and one of these days, I'll have to share photos of all of them here...but for now, I give you my three wooden ones:

Aren't they cute? But I couldn't stop there...really, I don't know how to stop...this next item is a gift an ex-boyfriend brought me from a trip to Ghana and it hangs on my bedroom wall:

Just one more, my last piece is something I made in shop class in the 8th grade, I got an A+ and have always been kind of proud of it. Now it hangs right inside my front door, I use it daily to hang up my keys:

And there you have it. Happy Saturday.

What a neat collection to have, at first I thought they may have been old Little People....I wish I had some of my old wooden Little People still.

Come see my first ever Photo Hunters post.

what a strange collection: pencil sharpeners.

My mind is failing - the other day I read a blog and there was another strange collection...but I can't remember for the life of me what it was

Very cool wooden items especially your key.

Very striking keyholder, Karina. And the Ghana wall hanging is very funky. But the pencil sharpeners are really, really cute. I can't wait to see more of your collection.

We have a key hanger just like that somewhere. If we would use it, we would not be missing our keys so often.
