Plumes and Ink

This is a writing plume and ink set I purchased in New Orleans.  It was handmade in France and it is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in person.  I rarely use modern pens when I write in my journal anymore.  I also use it when I'm setting intentions, writing manifestations, and calling forth my ancestors.   

If you enjoy penmanship, writing, and paper in general I highly recommend using one of these.  It makes the process so much more enjoyable, whimsical, and seductive.  If you have a lover to write to even more so.
