Feather Pen Works & Karen Ramstedt

Dana Ramstedt creates and designs feather pens. These feather pens are functional and will add flair to any historical theme. Some are of a simple design while others sport decorative trim to adhere to a genre or season. The feathers range from goose to peacock and more. She tips them with modern or with vintage metal tips for standard print and for calligraphy. A few feathers are finished with a standard ballpoint pen. To compliment her feather pens, Dana offers accessories such as ink, stands, trays and vintage inkwells and bottles to name but a few of the treasures. For a breath of long ago, take history in your hand and visit Feather Pen Works.

She looks forward to sharing her passions with you at the Karen’s Heartworks table.

Gateway to Obscurity

Using raw emotions along with touches of humour “Gateway to Obscurity” reveals a very personal expression of the human condition.  Revealed through poetic verse images are woven from words and phrases that allow the reader to better understand many difficult subjects.  It will undoubtedly be a book that the reader will want to read many times over with each time bringing to light a new sense of awareness to one’s self.  It will also be one that a person would want to share with a friend and lover for the insightful language that the author uses to infiltrate our defences and allow the honesty to come forth. Honesty that is too often obscured by an inability to communicate as we grow older and harbour secrets from those we love.
