I have always found watches and pens interesting.
I received my first watch (a Mickey Mouse) when I was four years old. It was a gift from my parents on the last day of a trip to Disney World. I saw the watch in a display case in one of the gift shops, and thought it was just the neatest thing I had ever seen. I spent the entire trip home from Florida to Ohio telling everyone in the car what time it was, every 15 minutes. By the time we got home, I think everyone in my family wished I had lost that watch!
My first fountain pen was a gift from my mother. It was a Lady Schaefer Skripsert pen that she had had for many years, and did not use anymore. She gave it to me when I graduated form high school. We shared a love for writing instruments, and I learned a lot about them from her. I still have that pen, and it has always been a favorite. Since receiving that pen, I have used, owned, and collected many more.
So, this site is devoted to two of my greatest interests. Watches and pens–from a woman’s point of view.
