Red and gold elephants

Red elephants with gold leaf

What a gorgeous treat was this paper. And the writer also has gorgeous handwriting, in this case with a flex fountain pen.

I have a particular soft spot for elephants, and the combination here of deep red and gold leaf is really striking. I don't think my photography and use of light really do it justice, but it is a treasure. (Go ahead, take a closer look.)


  1. I am totally in love with this one. What gorgeous handwriting! Why don't I have handwriting like that??? Waah.

  2. It's fantastic, huh? But the flex fountain pen is definitely a big part of the effect (though her handwriting is lovely even when she uses a "regular" fountain pen).
