housewarming gift


my sister, anna recently moved out to have her own studio apartment. we went home goods shopping at Daiso, of course. it was the one trip where i only bought only one item from that store. i'm not sure how that was possible.

i was thinking about what to give as a housewarming present, sure a pretty bowl or tea towels would have been great - except i have never used tea towels. all i know is that they look pretty. but rather than the classic bottle of wine or vase, why not a giant pencil as a gift?

we have a small collection of giant objects that are normally very small, like a muni transfer, paper clip, clothespin and pen. so the giant pencil was the obvious addition for her new apartment.

i just tied some baker's twine and added a manila tag. some gifts don't need much wrapping.
