First Big Pen Meet

I attended my first big pen meet today! Being a little introverted, it’s difficult for me to meet new people. This group is quite different, though. Everybody’s very nice, polite, accommodating and self-possessed. One of them repaired my Parker 51 Special pencil (so glad to have that back). Here are some of the pens that I saw at the meet:

It was my first time to see Montblanc’s Writers Editions and wow, they’re pretty amazing. My favorite is the Jonathan Swift and Mark Twain. Really gorgeous pens.

Perhaps one of my favorite pens at the meet was this demonstrator Parker 51. I loooove Parker 51’s, and I’ve never seen a demonstrator in person. It’s absolutely lovely.

Pens + Toys = FUUUUUN!

So I got a new lens today and I thought I’d try it out by taking photos of my pens (of course). I thought I’d include some of my husband’s collection too. Needless to say, I had a lot of fun haha. It’s nice to have hobbies (and a spouse who supports that hobby).

2014 Pen Family Photo!

My friend dropped by earlier this afternoon, and since we were grabbing late lunch together anyway, I asked if he can take a photo of some of my pens. I wasn’t able to bring all of my pens, but I did bring my favorites. We kind of lost daylight pretty fast, so the lighting isn’t consistent. Anyway, I love all of these pens, they each have a story to tell. I’m happy to have them photographed for what looks to be the start of a yearly tradition. ­čÖé Merry Christmas, everyone!
