Sunday Notes and Links

Not much to make a note of this weekend, so it’s all links. I did update my Resources page and added seven new sites to the list. Most of them are new(ish) pen blogs.

So right to the links:

Giveaway: Pens! Paper! Pencils is giving away a Twiss Custom Fountain Pen on May 10th.

This isn’t new, but I was refilling my F-C Model 66 eye dropper conversion and thought of this How to fill and eyedropper fountain pen video.

Goodwriterspens’s Blog has had articles about several vintage pens this week, such as The St. George Button-Filler.
