birds and blossoms..


Recently, Zoe from Girl in a Teeny Town got in touch with me and asked if I would like to try out one of the ribbon bookmarks she sells over at Birds and Blossoms.Being as how I'm always halfway through about five different books at a time, and can never remember where I've got to, I must admit I jumped at the chance.

My cute little parcel arrived ever so delicately wrapped and is very pretty, as you can see. I received a purple sparkly ribbon bookmark, in the 'Birds and Blossoms' design, which features a swallow charm and a rose one.

I started using it straight away and it's been really good. I suppose the charms work to weight it down and keep it in place in the book, as there have been no problems with losing it out of the book when it's been in my handbag (which sometimes happens with regular paper bookmarks). It seems very well-made and neither of the charms are at all loose.

I think these bookmarks are a total bargain at £2 each, and if you have a look at Zoe's site you can see she has 5 designs in stock at the moment. Postage to the UK is just £1 (or £3 outside of the UK) which I think is very reasonable. I'm definitely going to order some more as I think they will make lovely little presents.

  2. That swallow charm is lovely!

  7. Ah very pretty, I always end up using receipts and other such unattractive things! Don't know how you can read so many books at once, I'd have a meltdown! xx
