I love turquoise inks in the spring and summer. Sheaffer Turquoise seems like a good one.
Sheaffer Green looks like more of a teal in this swab. I’m not loving it.
Here’s a link to the sample over on Goulet Pens so you can see what others have to say.
Bold and classic.
In case you missed it earlier, I’m giving away a great looking notebook filled with Tomoe River Paper. Here’s a link for you.

Following is the pen that Susan Wirth recommended for Mr. Pentulant. I love this pen. I’m going to have to find a way to convince Mr. Pentulant to transfer ownership to me. 😉

Susan Wirth proclaimed, “You are an italics waiting to happen, Number Five!” As I mentioned yesterday, I tried a bunch of pens with italics ends and ended up falling in (almost) love with fantastic pen, but the price was more than I wanted to spend. Blech.
No worries, I didn’t walk away empty-handed. Check it out . . .

The next item is from Franklin-Christoph. If you’ve never shopped there, you should. I love their high quality and impressive customer service. I have had nothing but good experiences with them and their items are very thoughtfully designed.

Annnnd this pen is also from Franklin-Christoph. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I have the little sister of this pen and love it. This one is equally cool. (This is the clipless version.)

The twins . . . Mr. Pentulant found the next pen for himself. I ended up with pen envy and made him run off and find one for me, too . . .

A roundup of all of my LA Pen Show posts just in case you missed them . . .
The time to enter my Pilot-Iroshizuku ink giveaway has ended. I’ll be back on Monday to announce a winner!
Have a great weekend.
I received my Goulet Pens Ink Drop delivery a couple of days ago.
What a great group of colors, yes?
If I had to choose one that didn’t fit with the others, it would be the De Atramentis Indigo Blue – it’s a little dusky compared with the other clear clean colors, but I’d definitely write with it.
Between the two turquoise colors, I would choose the Lamy. Though the colors are very similar, the Lamy is definitely more saturated and I like that.
The Namiki blue has a bit of red in it – defnitely still blue, but leans more toward the purple end of things to my eye.
I’ve heard some great things about Diamine Soft Mint (which ended up a little funky in the scanned image above) and hope to have time to take a closer look at it in the very near future. Here’s a picture from my iPhone – the color is a bit better here….
Kudos to the person at Goulet Pens who chose this assortment! Well done.
Oh..and here’s the image I posted over on Instagram. I’m @christinewitt there.
