Back to School made fun

Every year about this time all shops are full of Back to school supplies. Internet is flooded with stationery goodness and I go crazy because love for stationery never left me (although I rarely use any really, with all the technology around the house). This year the whole thing is emphasized by the fact that  Back to School actually affects us too. With my son starting school in September I am pretty much all into the subject. Here in Hungary we get a pretty detailed list of what the first graders need in their pencil cases, what kind of pencil case, how much of anything. This admittedly takes a lot of stress of the parents shoulders, because frankly, those of us doing this for the first time are pretty much clueless.

Eraser ring is a handmade sterling silver ring with erasers. At the price of 110 USD it probably won’t be your first choice for your kids first day at school accessory, but it is still fun.
