I love gifts especially when they are not from myself. Thank you Ms. C for the fabulous crocodile pencils from the decadent minds of John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross, who together forged the home furnishing company Dransfield & Ross. The NY-based duo create many collections of office and home accessories sold at major high-end department stores like Neiman Marcus, Gumps San Francisco, Saks, Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and in this case, Henri Bendel. I adore the electric blue color of the pencils with their black accents, especially the graphite lead tips. What’s amazing about this set is the luxurious feel of croc-wrap and their elegant presentation.
For a touch of opulence, splurge on some small extravagences for your desk. You will truly appreciate the little things in life. And as Ms. C has shown us, they make for a great, unexpected present.
