latest pen acquisition

Look what I picked up earlier this month:
A beautiful glass pen, with a heart-shaped bottle of J. Herbin ink. I now have two glass pens.
On an incoming letter, I found this lovely snail on the envelope.
One recent lettter was enclosed in this, in an envelope.
On a sombre note, this stamp was used on a condolence letter my mother sent. She didn't want to use a jollier stamp such as Alice in Wonderland, or even an Elephant (never forgets).

  1. I agree, finding the right stamp for condolence cards is hard-pretty but not decorative. The poppy seems perfect. I'm from the United States, but as I understand it poppies are for remembrance in England.
