Books and Flowers (part deux)

My lilies are blooming!

So recently, I read a book (Pillars of the Earth - VERY good) and like always, I've lost all the bookmarks I have so I used a piece of paper. Over the hundreds of pages, I folded the paper over and over.

I thought, this is sad. I really should have a proper bookmark. I never got around to buying one. I remembered I had some unused ribbon from my wedding 5 years ago and with yet another broken (now repaired) brooch, I made myself a bookmark.

Now I need just need another book. I understand that there is a Pillars sequel. What I really need is to find the time!


  1. That's a really cute bookmark!

    I've always been one for buying cheap little cardboard bookmarks, and I always just end up using a public transport ticket or a receipt from the store... figures.

    I think I want to try with making one like the one you have in the pictures.

    Thank you for sharing - it's a really nice idea!

  2. Oh! the flowers are sooo beautiful. I like the book marker too. Have a great week.

  3. I LOVE milk glass, your hobnail vase is beautiful! It looks like it was made for lillies!
