In Praise of Orange Fountain Pens (and other things)


I was inspired to blog about our Orange PLOOMS fountain pen as a result of a letter I 
received this week from Sandy at Scarlett & Mustard www.scarlettandmustard.co.uk
Founder, Sandy and I corresponded as we were both chosen by Julie Deane
 of the Cambridge Satchel Co as female entrepreneurs to watch in 2015.
(No pressure then!)
Sandy sent me some of her fabulous Passion Fruit & Lemon Curd and I 
sent her a PLOOM fountain pen - in Orange - to match all her stationery.

It got me thinking how much I love orange and what an underrated colour it can be. 
So here are:

10 reasons to love the colour Orange
