Artsy, Artsy

I love art supplies.  I love to find sales on art supplies.  I own lots of art supplies.  If only I used them for things other than decorative purposes!  A friend gave me this holder Christmas before last.  It was appropriately steam-punky bronze and black and as much as I loved it, it didn't go with my decor.  The object was to use it for flowers.  But, we don't want to talk about my lack of a garden.  I got the brilliant idea of using it to store my colored pencils in a way that would make them visible, accessible, and therefore more apt for me to actually use them.  I spray painted it "Golden Margarita" which matches other painted things in "my" bedroom.  I dolled out the pencils and I love how it looks on my shelf.  I may actually use them yet!
