Ink-pen cleaning day and open memories

Ready for a bath

What did the Mad Hatter dr-ink?

This is what I learnt writing with.. the nib-pen. Still love writing with it.. dipping it into the ink bottle after every few words, getting the fingers dirty.. and the smell of ink... :)

...good old Chelpark.. :)

Some stuff from my childhood memories... the box of stationeries, the dymo label tape, my favourite clutch pencil... oh and ya, I want a vintage Beetle in that exact pink!

awesommmee...loved the shot of the nibs on the newspaper....:)
do u have blotting paper as well?

Shivani Gakhar said...

thanks! nope.. never used blotting paper.. just good ol' newspaper... remember using chalk to blot ink when we were in school..?
one of the many uses of chalk, apart from throwing on each other in chalk fights, or making the chair dirty for someone to sit on... i'm sure u know many more uses :P
