Beautiful new fountain pen.



The other day I went to Oblation Papers & Press (an incredible store in the Pearl District in Portland): http://www.oblationpapers.com/. They use old time printing presses to make invitations and stationary etc... they also have a wonderful assortment of fountain pens. I have been wanting a fountain pen for several months and I finally went and bought one. The one I bought is in the picture above on the far left (all of the pens are named by the maker) and the name of mine is Lava Flow. It is very pretty, it is a dark charcoal grey with an opalescent sheen to it with orange lines flowing through it. I also got a moleskine notebook to carry in my purse to jot down notes or to do sketches when needed. I love to write and I love beautiful writing implements, my new pen has inspired me to journal again and also to make this blog post.

Ciao Bella's!

Oh I love popping in there! I've never bought anything though :(

Your pen is great! Journaling is a great hobby to have! I love looking back on my old ones. btw, please tell me you saw the ladies journaling skit on Portlandia!

I keep on threatening to buy myself a lovely pen, but something always gets in the way. It's such a lovely concept - and so romantically old fashioned!
