So today I come home to the best sight ever!
My beautiful Alpha Pen from GW Pens arrived. I had been dancing around this pen for a while. Since I first met the wonderful John Greco and he showed me his site, I admired this pen. So when Black Friday came and he had a special, I had to jump on it! You’ll see why soon.
Can we just take a moment to enjoy the lovely packaging? The box has a nice soft touch feel and the pen is housed in a plush silky cocoon inside. He also included a handwritten wax sealed thank you note which was a very nice touch.
It is worth mentioning that this is a very light pen, I would say that it’s the lightest pen I own. Hand cramps be gone! I’ve already inked her up with Bungbox Sweet Potato Purple, which of course I will review once I’m done drooling over this pen!
My next treasure was of course a Pelikan! If you’ve read my blog you know I am a huge fan of the birds.
This one was purchased from De Roos in the Netherlands, I worked with Alexander Mengerink and he is absolutely wonderful! Has excellent knowledge of pens and a very nice selection. I was looking for this pink bird for a while, and all the time it was in his shop!
The box came well packed, with the pen gift wrapped. He included some high quality reading material as well as a post card :). I really want to visit there someday!
I call the pink Pelikan box the dominatrix box. Lots of pretty ribbon to unwrap! This setup would look great on some knee length boots 🙂
And then of course the pen…could not be happier with the shade of pink! I have been saving a bottle of pink Caran d’ Ache chromatic for this.
I wanted to see what the Bungbox hype was so I treated myself to some sweet potato purple :). And of course I’ve been loving KWZ so I had to pick up another color there too. Vanness1938 also gave me a free sample of Noodlers Army that I will have to try out too.
All in all today seriously feels like Christmas 🎄
