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.
That is a gorgeous sight. And below, a closer look at the Mark Twain and Jonathan Swift 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.
There were also Pelikans that I’ve never seen before. Continue reading “First Big Pen Meet” →
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).
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. 🙂 Merry Christmas, everyone!
