Pen Purge

imageAfter watches, jewels and art, I also have an unhealthy obsession with stationery. Unlike watches, jewels and watches, I have not really done a cull of my pens, notebooks and staplers.

Until now.

I’m only halfway through, but here are some of the keepers. I’ve cut down to only three pencil cases.

imageAnd here is my collection of fountain pens (and one ball point). I procrastinated during my purge  by refilling and testing them. Going through all the writing instruments made me want to get more.

imageIn a way, I did get more because I rediscovered these two Memphis-y beauties (the watch is a Timex Watercolor — that company’s response to the success of Swatch) while cleaning up.
