Sunday Reads: Cussin’, Ice Cream and Vivid Color


Stillman & Birn and Traveler’s Notebooks are always on my desk and I was delighted to find new ways to use them.

This week’s color inspiration came from a slideshow of birds. Matching fountain pen inks to them could be an entertaining endeavor though the colors seem brighter than what inkdom currently offers. What do you think?

Oh, and remember to leave a comment at the Herbin “1798” Jacques Herbin Amethyste de l’Oural Fountain Pen Ink giveaway. One entry per person. Drawing will be on August 10th. U.S. residents only.


Giveaway: Herbin “1798” Jacques Herbin Amethyste de l’Oural Fountain Pen Ink


Herbin’s new “1798” Jacques Herbin Amethyste de l’Oural fountain pen ink was announced today with availability slated for September 1, 2017. It’s a lovely color with glints of silver that reminds me of an amethyst and platinum ring my mother bequeathed my daughter. Purple and silver are beautiful together, subtle but elegant.

Karen at Exaclair, Inc., the U.S. distributor for Herbin, gave me a bottle that I am going to give away. To enter, all you have to do is post a comment below about the new ink. One entry per person. Shipping to a U.S. address only. The random drawing will be held August 10, 2017 at 6 pm PDT. The winner will have 48 hours to contact me at to claim the prize.

Good luck to all!

Update: This giveaway is now closed and a winner has been announced. Thank you to all who participated!
