- Peninkcillin reviews Diamine Graphite fountain pen ink. This looks like my kind of ink - understated but interesting and a bit different.
- A short video from Daisy Yellow on painting watercolour planets - very simple but also colourful and fun.
- The Clicky Post reviews the Palomino Golden Bear #2 wooden pencil. I liked reading his thoughts on how pencils differ from pens, and the Golden Bear is also a lovely looking pencil.
- I love iHanna's idea of drawing tiny treasures from around the home. I'm a collector of tiny treasures, so I'd have a lot to draw, and it would be a good opportunity to practice my drawing skills as well.
- No Pen Intended reviews the 2014 blue-green edition of the Lamy Al-Star. This pen is a gorgeous colour, and here's another review of it from Gourmet Pens! (I also love how Azizah matched her ink colour to the pen colour...)
- That One Pen presents a point size comparison of the Pentel EnerGel. I love EnerGels, but I had no idea they came in 1.0mm; I can just imagine how smooth and inky that wide of a tip must be. The 0.35mm and 0.5mm versions are my favourites.
- Ed Jelley reviews Maruman Mnemosyne Word Cards. I've always thought these were rather neat, and I love how The Pen Addict has used them to catalog his ink samples.
- Paper Lovestory shares some recent stationery finds and a short review of the Kuretake Cocoiro. I love "recent acquisitions" posts and the Cocoiro is a pen I've had my eye on for a while. I like how it looks though I've never been sure how much I would actually use it.

May Miscellany: A Little Bit of Everything
My last two miscellanies had themes, so this one is just the opposite: it contains a little bit of everything. It may also be a bit longer than usual, as I've developed something of a backlog of posts to share with you. Enjoy!
