I have a weakness!

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.

New Pen

There’s a history to this pen and I love it! 🙂
