Ink number 290

I visited my local bricks and mortar pen shop Pen & Paper today to pick up my retirement fund Montblanc Blue Hour ink (I buy at least two of all the special release Montblanc inks as I am confident there will be money to be made when I come to sell them in 5-10 years - they are sort of a self-managed super fund).

It is no fun to just buy an ink to cellar for future sale so I picked up a bottle Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine as well - a nice true green shade.

So that's ink number 290 and it has been added to my blog header image. Given the number of inks in line to use Aventurine might see the inside of a pen just before Christmas. I have too many inks. :)
