Pen Cleaning Day = Lamy Photo Op Day!

Sunday was pen cleaning time, perfect for some Lamy Safari fountain pen love.

What My Pens Are Named – Part 6

What My Pens Are Named – Part 6


Continuing the “What My Pens Are Named” series, my white Lamy is named the Snow Queen. NOT Elsa from Frozen! I had the traditional Hans Christian Andersen Snow Queen in mind here, way before Disney made their movie. 🙂


This was a tough pen to name! I pondered Scarlett, Carmen, Ruby, Lola, Rose…. Nothing seemed to fit! So instead, it is just Red.


My pink Lamy is Strawberry Shortcake. I got this not long after Skeletor and Papa Smurf, so was still in my cartoon phase haha. And I loved that cartoon as a kid.

Neon Coral:

I named my new Neon Coral pen! It is such a happy coraly tropical color, I named it after the beautiful Bougainvillea flowers I saw while vacationing in the Caribbean last year. So, Bogie for short. 😀 Which just brings Humphrey Bogart to mind, which seems incongruent with a pink red pen, but I actually kinda love that too.

All of them together:

Lamy Red and Red ‘n Black

Really liking this little 4×6 Black ‘n Red notebook. It has good quality paper my FP’s like, a strap to keep closed, AND perforated pages. Wish the Office Depot I found it in had had a spiral bound larger size too!

Come on Lamy, we need purple!

Recently bought the Hero clone of the Lamy Safari, aka, the “Fauxfari” (credit goes to somebody online I can’t remember haha), and it’s okay. It was affordable, writes very smoothly, but is a noticeably different quality from the regular Lamy line. When taking a picture of the whole collection, it really highlights why a purple color is needed! Come on Lamy, what gives?
