I adore these Koi Watercolors!

Playing with these amazingly bright Koi Watercolors. This ultramarine blue especially, mmmm.



Can you tell I like orange?

The Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box set with my Kipling 100-pen set and my Lamy Safari Flame. Love how all the colors match, even though I got the items at separate times.

Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box = AWESOME.

The Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box set are fantastically vibrant!

Lamy Red-Clip Love

Giving some love to these less-often used pens in my collection, the 2004 Flame with red clip and the 2006 Royal Blue with red clip.

Ooooh – Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box looks awesome!

These just arrived recently! I’m excited to play with them. 🙂


What My Pens Are Named – Part 2

Next in line is the limited edition blue with red clip – my 5th pen, and I found it in ebay back in 2009 for a steal before the prices became crazy high for it. I’m telling you, nothing has enabled this Lamy addiction for me as much as Ebay has. Anyways, as soon as I saw the great sky blue with red cap detail, I knew. Who else could it be but Papa Smurf?? I still really love the blue, and sometimes go back and forth about wishing it had a silver clip too – have to be honest, the red doesn’t always do it for me. But I love it anyway. So, feel free to sing the Smurfs theme song every time you see this pen now.

What My Pens Are Named – Part 3

So, let’s recap. I bought my first Lamy, the Charcoal, in December 2008. Less than two months later, through a combo of online, in-store and ebay purchases, I had SIX of them, the latest being the limited edition Lamy Flame – and four bottles of ink! I named her Angelina Tangerina, because nothing rhymes with orange. And a song popped up randomly on my ipod that day, “Angelina/Zooma zooma” by Louis Prima, and the lyrics go “I eat antipasti twice, just because she is so nice, Angelina. Angelina, the waitress at the pizzeria” and I was like EUREKA! Angelina rhymes with Tangerina! And its vaguely pizza colored ish! And that became her name forevermore
