Old church + lovely ink from Philippines

Postcard from Philippines

A blog reader sent me this postcard of a funky old church from the Philippines. Though I am not much on old churches (or any churches, for that matter), this is a really lovely building. The other side was the rockin' side, though.

Parker Quink Ruby

I don't know how I hadn't managed to see Parker Quink Ruby fountain pen ink before, but I hadn't. Gorgeous stuff! Wow. I have a couple Parker Vectors -- could it look that fantastic in mine?

Philippines bird stamps

The stamps are awesome, too.

Update on 5/19/2009: Clem informs me this is actually Parker Penman Ruby ink, not Parker Quink Ruby, for those dropping everything trying to find this vintage ink.
