  9. Pretty.

    Here I insist on handwriting and have pretty gel pens to induce neatness.

  10. Beautifully done. You are right . . . it is a lost art. I used to teach calligraphy for about 20 years. But even now, my pens sit on the side and are seldom used.

  12. There is certainly something special about a handwritten letter. I actually can't remember the last ice I wrote one or received one... I love the way you photographed this!

  13. Oh how I use to love fountain pens and even the ones later on that took a refill instead of having to fill them. I still love writing letters, and receiving mail, but as your photo states...sadly, I think a lost art among many others. Love the different colors in your photo. Really nice.
