    This is an idyllic scene! I love the white Eco. I will definitely get it sometime, but the Duragraph is first. My ideal relaxation location is wherever my pens are. I’m a tinkerer, so specifically, wherever a few empty pens and unused nibs are. Or a pen in need of cleaning! Diamine Turquoise looks good. I’ll need to try it. This round of sample buying is blue, but I think that I can slip a turquoise in there. Another great Thursday Things! I look forward to them every week!

      David, I think turquoise fits right in with the theme of this MM, many idyllic aquatic places have turquoise colored water.

      David, I am chuckling over your comment. I’ve moved close to the beach, and enjoy going just to see the various water colors, enjoy the sun and generally chill out. But I never go without my fountain pens. Just can’t totally relax without them! I may write a few lines, or just look at them, but they are with me. Also, one can never have too much turquoise. Think that’s a law of some kind!

    I’ll just sit back and visualize what you have painted here (with words and lovely images). So relaxing, idyllic indeed. Love this TT. My ideal relaxation location would have these elements: away from modern things, quiet and peaceful, lovey views, a place to get comfortable, wonderful view of nature, animal and plant life. Could be on a cove, in a boat quietly anchored, on the beach under palms, in the mountains, on a small creek, a quiet glade in the woods, sounds of birds and other animals. Where the modern world fades away and my mind can carry me off. Books, pens and paper, and preferably four legged buddies to share it with. Most of the time these days it is on my front porch surrounded with trees, hearing the hummingbirds and my neighbors’ horses. And the dogs with me of course! And free to doze off whenever. Thanks for a fantastic theme and making my Thursday brighter.

      Sounds fabulous, Tom!

    Turquoise Thursday Things, or TTT for short. This has to be one of my favorites. The color is so relaxing, and invokes such pleasant feelings! Wow!

    My favourite place would be Paphos, Cyprus. We were married there and visited several times since, and the Mediterranean is just this colour! This TT has made me so nostalgic!! I always had my pens with me, and actually bought two of my favourites there on the island! I can’t go back now, but still have the memories! Thanks for bringing them to mind again ! I look forward to TT every week and love your presentations !

      Thanks for sharing those precious memories! What a sweet thing to be reminded of. Thanks for checking out the themes every week.

    As the author of “Why … THANK YOU! – How to Have FUN Writing Fantastic Notes and More” I’ve always loved my fountain pens, though over the last few years I haven’t written with one in quite awhile. Fortunately, that has all changed. Why? Because I’ve just recently discovered @Goulet Pens and every encounter has been delightful. So much so, that I placed my first order with you this past week to purchase two new pens: a Lamy LX Fountain Pen – Gold, Extra-Fin and a Lamy Al-Star Fountain Pen – Pacific, Extra-Fine (Special Edition).

    I’m looking forward to reading more blogs and watching your informative and entertaining videos. Thank you!
