Who doesn't love a sarcastic retro housewife? These handmade pencil holders are sure to make you smile every time you look at them, with some witty sarcasm to brighten your day!

Don't limit your new holders to just pens and pencils. You can hold makeup brushes, Q-Tips, cotton balls, change, jewelry, or anything that needs a special place. Set of three holders, each 4 3/8" tall and 3" across.

Made from metal cans, these pencil cups were handpainted in blue, purple and watermelon pink acrylic paint. I picked out several awesome retro housewife pictures that I collaged onto the cans. Each pencil holder was sprayed with a glossy shellac to preserve the paint, pictures, and give it shine.

Happy Organizing!

Thank you for shopping with Fem by Design


About Fem by Design

Factory-made is ice-cold.
The energy – the warmth we seek – cannot be mass produced.

As an applied craft artist, I use my hands and heart to awaken machine-made objects. Warmth in physical things are born through connection of people. You and I share the phenomena.

I have always been drawn to the classic beauty of pin-up girls. That aside, expressions through all my work are consistently feminine: comforting, pretty, and passionate. I tend to create with mixed media; wood with acrylic paints and clay, or multi-layered collages, as some examples. Much of my work is influenced by colors and characteristics of Oregon.
