The Galen leather bag is just stunning. Have been lusting after that myself since I first saw it.
Not sure I'll ever be granted an unlimited spend up again for art supplies. 😄 Last night, a seller accepted my 'offer' on a vintage Montblanc. The nib design looks to be the same as the Lamy 2000—who copied who? I'll be interested to test it beside the Lamy 2000. I'm loving using my Lamy 2000 pens in a painterly way.
Yes I have (that colour) writer's bag, very handy indeed! Love their products - I have some of their brass things and a pencil sharpener, and another A5 zipped notebook cover with a couple of TR notebooks on order, not expecting them for a few weeks yet. All ways happy with their stuff, has an old fashioned quality and feel to it! Love it!
Set of three Australian Sketchbook ink line and watercolour wash artworks underway featuring an old gold miner's gully with what I think from the look of the timbers in black wattle, or it might be Cootamundra wattle. I will ask around and find out. It should look effective when finished with the soft blue-green foliage, the yellow blooms, against the black tree branches—then of course, all the boots. It is called Boot's Gully, and Australians have a wicked sense of humour. I'm painting one of the works tilted sideways to add to the quirkiness of the scene.
Which Fountain Pen Nib to Choose?
If you write small, go with an EF
For the normal writer, F is the most popular
If you tend to lean on a bigger font, M will be perfect
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
