New soles

Written by feltedhat on . Posted in other


Just a quick one today as I just got two pairs of shoes back from the shoe maker having put new soles on them. Can’t believe that this is the first time in my life I have done this. I’ve been walking around for years with cheap plastic soles. πŸ™‚ And what really strikes me: If you take care of the shoe and you’ll put on new soles more than once the whole thing is even less expensive than the stuff you get here. Must say I am really happy with my Loake’s!

Caran d’Ache – Ecridor Retro ballpoint pen

Written by feltedhat on . Posted in other

Whit this it is obvious that I am a Caran d’Ache fan. But sometimes a fountain pen is not the best choice. Just sometimes. So a ballpoint pen should be in your collection too.


What you see here is a Ecridor, same as the fountain pen I presented here already. Amongts the designs that can be chosen I like this one, the Retro, the most, even though I have to say that I like the Rotation and the newest Lignes Urbain motive as well. So many to chose from! πŸ™‚


And if silver plated and rodium coated does not go and you just need to have a pen to stow away in a bag or a jacket and forget about it until you need to sign somewhere or fill out a cross word riddle on a long train ride, the ballpoint pen of your choice could be the 849. The culty little brother of the Ecridor. Comes in various colors and there are special design editions as well.


Just remember the pen is mightier than the sword. πŸ™‚
