Inks Chris Bought in 2017

Inks I bought 2017_0002

My friend Chrissy, the indomitable ink goddess, is always kind enough to give us a list of the inks she bought each year. Her 2017 roster is awesome, as ever. She and I bought almost entirely different inks this year, too — our only common purchase was Lamy Petrol. Note, however, that Chrissy is the sort of person who not only lives through a terrible hurricane far from home, but actually emerges triumphant, with free Montblanc ink in hand. A Robinson Crusoe for our time. Here, in her own words, are Chrissy’s ink purchases from 2017:

For 2017 I’m pleased to report that I kept my New Year resolution and wrote records of my pen and ink purchases. I decided to start two separate pages in my Seven Seas Writer Journal, titled “Inks I Bought,” and “Pens I Bought.” I kept them accurately and feel almost saintly. 🙂

Yes, I admit the inks page has more entries, but I spent more on pens because I made one expensive purchase.

  1. Hi, Chrissy!

    Thanks for the blog post! Where do you do your ink shopping in Naples, Florida? I have family there, and would love to support a local vendor when I visit.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Pastellier Callifolio- Equinoxe No. 6 sounds very interesting. I’ve read about that one before. Chrissy, I liked hearing about your ink purchases. I’m sorry to hear you were evacuating from Hurricane Irma!

    Laura, good to hear you are using the Seven Seas journal. I love mine, and use it just about everyday!

    1. Oh, thank you, but that would be Chrissy who’s using her journal to record purchases. 🙂 I only wrote the parts in italics, at the very beginning and very end. But I do have posts about my own journal elsewhere on the blog. 🙂



  3. Thank for sharing Chrissy!

    I’m intrigued by the Montblanc Red Chine, I’ve been thinking about that myself.

    >> 55 miles west of London

    I know that area well. I used to live in Ealing, and work in Windsor, with relatives in Reading, Henley and Oxford, plus friends at the Universities. Nice area… with some lovely pub’s. I particularly liked the Olde Bell at Hurley 🙂
