I was really happy to find these few treasures on a stall at our collectors market here in Fakenham. There is a collectors market every Thursday and I often have a walk around and see if anything catches my eye. The dip pens, the vintage rubber stamp and the paper knife were only £1 each so I snapped them up of course! 🙂
I joined in Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap again this year. Here are the cards that came through my mail box.
The cards are from Dave, Linda, Kat, Susan, Laura and Kris, all from the USA and all taken from original Art or photography.
I’m showing you my birthday presents because they are mostly related to mail and mail art:-)
These are what were in the envelope I showed you yesterday.
The little package was from my husband. He also bought me this lovely vintage writing case. Have you ever seen one like this before?
This morning I received this lovely package in the post, from my dear friend in Germany.
It contained some more washi tape (hurrah), A beautiful monogrammed block for ink or use as a wax seal and this absolutely delightful glass dip pen.
Because I love writing, I have a weakness for fountain pens and a growing dislike of ball point pens. This has been creeping up on me slowly as I didn’t realise until recently how many fountain pens I have. I was talking to my husband about starting a collection of fountain pens and it came to my attention that I already have one! Any way, this is a subtle way of telling you I’ve bought another one.
This is a type of fountain pen I have, for may years, admired from affar and you are probably wondering what I’m going on about. Well here it is, my new (vintage) Sheaffer fountain pen.
There’s a history to this pen and I love it! 🙂
I have such a back log of lovely mail to show you because of decorating in the house, so while I’m sorting it into manageable sections I’ll show you some lovely things I’ve bought.
Some lovely vintage ephemera…
………..and a couple of lovely vintage fountain pens.
Very pleased with these. Mail Making rules! 🙂
