Bookmark love - giveaway!

Mini Valentines Hearts Bookmark Pair
Copper and Silverplate


I bought some of these handmade copper book marks for Christmas & loved them. Here's the description from Esty:

These two hearts clips are sweet little bookmarks or can be used to adorn a greeting card, clip a family picture to a thank you card, jazz up an invitation...they are festive, pretty decorations for any paper item you may be using. They are hand-formed from copper and silverplated wire, then run through the rolling mill to flatten, both for beauty and funtionality. This small, flat pagemarker will not indent the pages of your card or photo, or ruin a card being sent in the mail. They measure about .1" by .1"

So nice for Valentine's Day:)
How can you go wrong? Be sure to check out all of ialuna's designs: Here's the link. I have stars, guitar and fish -- all super cute.

Win a book & a bookmark

Giveaway: In recognition of Valentine's Day and because it is my first giveaway, I'm giving away a new, hardcover copy of a book I loved, A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas. And, a beautiful bookmark from ialuna (Ivy) to go with it. You choose the design (star, heart, etc) you'd like to receive.

A Three Dog Life is, I think, the best memoir I have ever read. It’s sad, terrifying, and scorchingly honest. It’s also a testament to the power of love, suggesting that even when love isn’t enough…somehow, it is. This book is a punch to the heart. Read it.”
—Stephen King


“Abigail Thomas navigates a life redefined by ambiguous loss—a beloved husband who ‘is there and not there.’ She makes sense of mangled senses where a new logic is encoded; she lets mystery stand where translation is not possible. Her many gifts as a writer and deeply generous person show us what is possible when two brave people examine a reconfigured life—one that conjures the uncanny, spotlights the power of art, and amplifies the meaning and reach of love.”
—Amy Hempel

Both of the bookmarks are gorgeous! I'd love to enter and I'll post about it tomorrow, too! I'll be back to give you the link to my post....what a great giveaway, Sherry!

Those bookmarks are adorable! Thanks for sharing!

And I ran right over when you said you were giving away a memoir but I did already read this one so I'll leave it for others. It was wonderful, and I'm actually going to put it in a new book category posting that I'm working on about grief. I know whoever wins the book will really get a good one! I'll try to link to it on my blog, but you don't have to enter me since I read it already!

I keep meaning to slip by....did you take the Lake Tahoe photo?

I miss Sausalito....and the bay area, but hope to get back soon to visit family and friends.

It's only been since '99 ; (

Cheers!
