My birthday pen arrived this morning. Thought I would share the unboxing!

(The pen is now put away until my birthday at the end of May)

No customs charges! :bunny01: I've ordered twice from the Goulets and both times avoided customs charges.

I don't know how or why, but I'm grateful.

A Beautiful pen, no doubt.

You know, I couldn't do it. The pen would've been inked and in my hand writing before I unwrapped the Tootsie Mini Pop. More power to you!

That's lovely. The contrast between the blue wrapping and pink pen is really something.

Getting the mini tootsie pops from Goulet is half the fun of getting a package from them :) Nice looking pen and happy early birthday

Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes! I enjoyed the lollipop, and have put the pen away for my birthday. I have lots of other pens to keep me happy until then, plus some ink samples I ordered at the same time.

Thanks Peterg. Burleigh Blue Calico is still made in Stoke on Trent in the English Potteries, but I believe the company is now owned by Denby Pottery. I love it and use it every day.

I have to agree there.  'Course, it makes my kids really jealous when I won't share.

 

Congrats Lorna.  Happy Birthday.
