New bunch of bookmarks

IMG_9131

When it comes to bookmarks, my philosophy is one can never have too many. I must have hundreds stashed away all over the house and even at my office, and yet for some reason I still manage to find myself in inopportune moments where I have to use a receipt or a table napkin to mark my place in a book (crazy, right?).

It’s been a while since I showed you bookmarks from my collection, and I realized I’ve amassed quite a few neat ones in the last couple of years, so here they are!

Embroidered bookmarks from Cambodia:

(Leftover) Bacon bookmarks – made them myself, and gave them out a couple of Christmases ago. Always fun to watch people’s reactions!
