Time for a lie down and a read....


I made this bookmark, big enough not to get lost;
silk pictures that were originally
in an elaborate metal frame.

The reverse;
I wonder who painted the originals?

I'm having some time out.
There is much to do outside
this time of year that
I just can't ignore.

Hi Alaine,

It must be all that dancing over at Willow's! Enjoy the "rest" outside.

If the book gets boring, you can always daydream about the book mark! Lovely...

hi alaine - i just sent my aussie boy back to your warmth and colour and outdoor life. here it's the opposite - colours are dropping, fading, drying, dying. the life is turning indoors. that's a beautiful bookmark you know!!!! steven

How clever are you beautiful bookmarks can't help you on who may have painted originals.Someone out there is sure to know.

Hi Derrick, that was fun, wasn't it. Yes, it's going to be hard to take; I get more rest sitting in front of the computer!

Alaine said...

Hi Lynn, I love it and it never gets lost. I have to be careful and check that it's not inside when returning books to the library!

Hi Steven, more time now that the Aussie has gone? Good, nice to see you again. I don't know where he lives but we're experiencing wintry conditions down South! I'll put a bit of colour up soon.

Hi Barbara, yes, someone is sure to know but will they find my blog?

Beautiful book marks. I'm always losing them, so this is a very cool idea.

Alaine - enjoy your time out. It is getting exactly the opposite here, we are tidying up & doing the last wee outside jobs, getting ready to settle in for the winter. i do love the sunlight images they are amazing x ruthie

Hello Ruthie, I love getting ready for the winter! I hope our summer isn't as tragic as the last.

Thanks for visiting Ruthie. xa

I like your bookmark it is very elegant. I have a stack of bookmarks near my bed as I usually have ½ dozen books being read there. I cut the back of wall calendars; you know where they show what the picture is inside each month – because it is made of light cardboard and the pictures are pretty. I also pick up small ads on postcards during my travels, or Paris metro tickets, or restaurant cards from foreign cities and use those – and then I remember where they came from and then I stop reading and start dreaming about travels once more.

Hello Vagabonde, how fortunate you are to have travelled extensively. Great idea using the tickets and postcards; I'd be doing a lot of dreaming too. My trouble is that I read a couple of pages and I'm in dreamland anyway! I wish I could stay awake to read, read, read!
