Favourite Things Friday: School Supplies

As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools. –Unknown

The Little Bugs went back to school this week and it has me in a school supplies frame of mind. Of course, the displays of pencil boxes and the bins of scissors and glue and erasers and the stacks of notebooks and binders in the middle of the main aisle at just about every store in town for the last month have helped too. I love school supplies all year round, but this time of year school supplies are on sale and that makes them even better.

Notebooks are at the top of my 'cool school supplies' list. I especially like composition notebooks.

And I love mechanical pencils. I went a little nuts with the mechanical pencils this year. I have two at my desk and three on my sewing table and one in my purse and six in the kitchen.

But my very favorite are the pens. I like pens that are retractable {instead of having a lid that may or may not get lost}, have a fine tip and write smoothly. And I love them in every color.

I'm not sure why, but it is just one of those little pleasures in life to buy new school supplies!

They have such cool composition notebooks out now too, growing up all we had were black and white marble ones. Now there are all kinds of designs. I agree with the writing very smoothly with the pens, and no lids, click it only ones.I also like the ones that are a little bit fatter than the stick kind too.

Fabulous favourite! I'm with you on the school supplies. There's just something fun about new supplies for the new school year. I stock up during the sales too. The boys love cap erasers. I have no idea why, they just do. ☺ Thanks for sharing. Happy FTF!

I'm like you Elizabeth- pretty stationary and pens and clean unused notebooks thrill my heart .

I love kilometrico pens, and flowing ink pens , and boxes of unused coloured pencils...

Too bad I dont have any school aged kids anymore!

I love school supplies too. I have managed to restrain myself and only have bought some mini composition notebooks, some pens, and some mechanical pencils (kinda like what you have shown here, ha). Yesterday I almost bought a pad of Crayola drawing paper because it felt like the right weight for paper piecing, not too thick or thin. I changed my mind, but I just may go back for it...

I love school supplies too! Last year I bought a bunch of stuff and I didn't even have anyone going to school! How ever this year I have restrained myself from buying.
