Vintage Pelikan 140 - this Model went out of production in 1965. I got mine today from the bay and after a gentle cleaning it works just fine. After more than 50 years! Lovely oblique medium (OM) nib in 14k gold. The oblique nib totally works with my wonky hand position :-)

Ink: Lamy royal blue
Paper: Oxford 90 grams lined

Ink Impressions: Lamy Hot Coral

Lamy issued a matching ink to its bright 2014 special edition Safari. I could not find it anywhere locally but the internet is your friend. Of course I had to put the ink into the matching pen :-) It’s a fun combination although I’ve got to admit, this is one very weird color. Not red, not orange, not pink but kind of a mixture of everything. It’s a very light color which makes for some nice shading. With the A nib that’s installed in the Safari it actually feels a bit dry whereas with the standard Pelikan royal blue the pen always felt like a very wet writer.

I’ll keep this combo for a bit longer I think and be it only to annoy my colleagues with all this eye-watering brightness :-D

Fountain pen: Lamy Safari, A nib
Ink: Lamy Coral cartridge
Paper: from top to bottom - Oxford 90 grams ruled optic paper, regular copy paper 80 grams, inkjet paper 90 grams

Lamy Safari - a design icon. There’s 22 years between the yellow and the hot coral one.

How to hide emergency money. Take your empty chap stick container and pop off the bottom taking all the insides out and then glue the bottom back on. http://ift.tt/1lxoObQ via Pinterest


Neat idea!

Flöten - Recorders on Flickr.It’s only a hobby if you’re going slightly over the top with it ;-) Lovely set of recorders: no-name tenor, Yamaha alto, Aulos soprano. Trying to brush up my recorder skills to play along with our quite talented and mostly motivated 6yr old.
