*(Or, cases. Let’s be honest. No pen addict only has one pen case.)
So, last time I promised you a look inside the pen cases I keep in the ‘bag organiser’ where I hoard all my Midori stuff, so that’s what you’re going to get.
First up, the pencil tin on the right with all the London images on it. Naturally, I got this one from Paperchase. In this one, we have my watercolour pencils from WHSmiths (they have “Just add water” on them in silver, which I love) and a waterbrush.
That goes from right to left in the picture of the pens in the case up there. Not entirely sure why I wrote it like that, but there you go. I really like those gel pens, and the lids are pretty cute. Plus they were pretty cheap – I think I paid just under £3 for all four? They’re thin too, so they’d probably fit in most organiser pen loops.
Finally we have that bigget pencil case. That’s made from oxblood red leather, and I got that from eBay too. That one was a little more expensive – I think I paid £6 or so for it (I can’t remember, but I know it wasn’t more than £7) but, I really like it and don’t regret that. The eBay seller had lots of different colours and a few different things in their shop. The seller was… Leather on the High Street. I have a picture on my Instagram of this case, my Personal Wine Holborn Filofax and my Midori.
So first, we have the big “group shot” of the stuff:
And then, two close ups for the different “columns.” Things in the column on the right that aren’t on the scan I’ll show you in a minute are:
~ a Uni-Ball Kura Toga with a gel grip
~ Kura Toga leads, Pilot Eno red leads and some, I think Pilot coloured leads
~ a Faber Castell triangular eraser.
Y’see, these are all things that I’d like to be using in my Midori, that I plan on using, but currently I just can’t put down my fountain pens. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, but it’s not… Not quite what I planned, which is slightly odd, but hey, they’ll still be there when I want them.
Tell you what though guys. It’s a good job I’m not doing this with every pencil case that I own. That would be… Quite the post.
So that’s what I keep in these cases and they’re all pens I’m actually really rather fond of. Then again, I don’t think I own any pens that I don’t like; maybe a few that I’m not sure about but that’s an unrelated post.
Until next time folks!
