leave your mark bookmarks!

Don't you love it when you held on to something just waiting for the right idea to come along? I was given this gorgeous vintage velvet ribbon from France a year ago and had no idea what I would do with it. The colors so beautiful and the spools equally as such. Then I saw this clever idea of making bookmarks out of ribbon. I climbed into my attic to find another stash of something just waiting for the right idea...a collection of forgotten jewels...some had once been earrings, pins and necklaces from my grandmother's things. I put them away 10 years ago along with many other goodies from her estate. I had found the perfect thing, these lovely bookmarks! Treasures to behold and hold a place in your book whether you are reading it or not. Just beautiful little baubles that sparkle and have new life!
