A New Year’s Treat from Singapore

A few days ago I received the most delightful New Year’s card from my blogging friend Ju-Lyn of Touring My Backyard. Tucked inside were three charming bookmarks.

Ju-Lyn wrote “sending along these quaint bookmarks (because readers/writers can’t have too many bookmarks, right?)

Absolutely right. Many thanks, Ju-Lyn!

  1. Nice and true. When I came south, I brought one of my all time favorite bookmarks from Mark Twain with “Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress, but I repeat myself” on it. I’ve lost it and can only think it got tucked into a library book I returned. Down the road, someone will have a chuckle when they check that book out. πŸ™‚

  2. What a nice surprise. I have a small drawer of bookmarks and always go there to choose one when I start reading a physical book. The ones I treasure are made of papyrus painted with various Egyptian gods, slipped inside a plastic sleeve with a tassel. There are others, too, but yours look fabulous.

      1. It works because it’s a small drawer–on a little chest with three drawers across on the first row. I always know where to get my bookmarks. Of course, I keep a couple in the nightstand and some are scattered about in books…

  3. Oh my goodness, Laurie! I am so tickled I am featured in your post!!!! Even more thrilled that the card & bookmarks made it to you in time for the Lunar New Year! even with all the snowstorms! Hurray, US Postal Service!

    I hope Dee likes her shurakan bookmarks …. Older Child crafted it. The other 2 were store-bought – made from old kimonos (I thought it rather charming – hopefully, you do too!)

    1. I will let Dee know that Older Child crafted the shurakan bookmark. And, yes, the two made from old kimonos are absolutely charming. Again, many thanks!
