Friday Favorites – Bookmarks

hearts-border31This week’s “Friday Favorites” features my favorite way to mark my place in a book – and that’s with a little piece of art. ๐Ÿ™‚

No scraps of paper or turned down pages for me!

Sometimes I use a miniature print of a favorite painting from our art museum’s gift shop. Other times I might use a handmade gift tag that I’ve received on a present.

But some of my most treasured bookmarks were made by origami artist, Kayo.

Wouldn’t it be fun to see one of these lovely ladies as you curl up with that book you’re currently reading? You’ll find them available in many colors in Kayo’s etsy shop.


Take a little time for yourself this weekend, OK? ๐Ÿ™‚

See you Monday for the new weekly giveaway with new questions and a very special prize!
