Do The Write Thing!

I am one lucky blogger/maker! 

I often get the loveliest hand written notes from readers of Worshipblues and customers of Stranger London. I love that so many people are still willing to pick up a pen and take the time and effort to write something to someone.

So, in an effort to spread the love for ink and penmanship as well as thank you all for following my higgledy-piggledy blog, I am giving away one of my personal favourite fountain pens the Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen to one lucky person. 

The winner will not only get to choose their favourite colour and will also receive a gold pocket clip and pack of ink cartridges of their choice too!

The design of the Kaweco Classic Sport remains faithful to the original 1935 octagonal form and it is a very durable yet light pen with a gold plated stainless steel nib. The Kaweco Classic Sport has an oversized lid that acts as an extension to the pocket sized pen that allows for comfortable writing.

  1. Oh no! I want to enter, but I used The Old Reader to follow you and I do not have a twitter...LOL Oh well! I am big fan of Kaweco pens!

  2. Do you know how much (extra) money I spend on stationery after looking at your blog and/or shop? T_T And the fact that I got to know The Journal Shop and Cult Pens through you... my wallet weeps :(

  3. I didn't even know you were on facebook! Officially clicking the "like" button on there!
    I recently lost my own Kaweco during a move, so I'm crossing my fingers - I really miss it.
    Thank you so much for a fantastic blog, it's always interesting to read about the small, quirky things you discover.

  4. I never saw these pens, but would love one very much. I would write wistful wish lists on the back of bus tickets all about stationery and lovely scissors and black pearls.

  5. Oh my, I'd love to win that handsome pen! My very first birthday gift that I could remember was a fountain pen, I cherished it forever. It was a Parker fountain pen with a bottle of Blue/Black ink.

  6. Hi,

    Why do I need to enter? Because since I am following your blog, I became convinced that I needed to give a try to the Kaweco Fountain Pens. I have always been on the look for a fountain pen whose design would be nothing less than perfect, and your blog gave me the answer.

    I feel always very proud when I find an item that is both splendidly executed and affordable (I do not envy people who are wealthy enough to buy anything, because they do not have to think their design purchases through, which is have the fun). And this blog helps me in this quest.

  7. *waves hello* now following you here as well as FB ;)

    I would love to win as my old fountain pen has just exploded and I now have purple fingers! Yes, the purple obsession even goes to ink ;)

  8. I'm left-handed and after messy attempts with fountain pens at school, I've always avoided them. That said, I always coo wistfully at them, imagining the joy of slowly unscrewing the top and carefully putting ink to paper. I have a milestone birthday coming up and I think it's time I gave myself the pleasure of 'proper' writing.

  9. I used to always use a fountain pen when I was at school, but somewhere along the line swapped to biro. I always took much more care of my penmanship with a fountain pen, now it's a hurried scrawl - it would be nice to reclaim the nostalgic art!

  10. Pens are a lot like socks I think. You always have a favourite, and most people own many, and they always get lost... I've been meaning to purchase myself a lovely pen (my 50 cent half-bitten biro I found on the floor may do the job but it's hardly professional...).

    There's a woman at work who has a beautiful pen, and beautiful penwomanship. Her flowing, scrolling script is divine and I've always wanted to be able to emulate it myself.

    Thank you for having such a wonderful blog! I always like coming back here to see what you wish to write about next.

  11. Why? Because I collect fountain pens, and I love them. I love writing with them, I love looking at them, and I am a little bit crazy abut pens in general.


    P.S. I follow you on Twitter under my fake name. I do not have a Facebook account, because I hate it. :)

  12. Lovely fountain pens. It's nice they don't have a battery.

  13. I've been curious about the Kawecos for awhile -- they get such great reviews & are so affordable! :) I love writing with fountain pens & am looking for one with a broader nib, so would love to win one.

  14. I would like to win because I've wanted, but never had, a fountain pen. These are beautiful.

    I found you when Googling to see others' results using Merchant & Mills patterns. I love your Dress Shirt (a pattern I already own) and you inspired me to purchase the Trapeze Dress pattern as well.

    I, too, have followed you on Twitter using a fake name. My follow on Pinterest is under my real name, however.
