I love the eucalyptus book mark. What a brilliant idea.

Annie said...

Well done to the winner. And an ooh, love the book mark from me too :D

Serena said...

Excellent choice of reading material! And I chime in in loving the bookmark, too.

Tania said...

I recognise a couple of those objects! (well, sort of - because the cushion looks as fabulous as the skirt).

Stomper Girl said...

That's an Anne book, that is. Comfort reading for the end of year?

librarygirl said...

yes, it took me about 40 seconds to work out the book - well author definitely - is it Anne of Avonlea?
I thought it was because of my job, then realised, NO just my aspy/ocd-ish book tendencies...

Suse said...

You lot are good.

the dog looks very noble here, like an art nouveau sculpture.

Thrifty Household said...

A leaf in a leaf of your book- perfect, I love it!

My mouse was on the dog photo when it opened and when the "I see a little silhouette" title popped up, Queen immediately started singing in my head. Scaramouche! Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
I love the blanket stitched leaf bookmark. I'd have to make one from felt as I don't think the Aspen or Scrub Oak leaves in my back yard would hold up to embroidery floss.

your prettily cushioned lamby chair looks so inviting , i'm not surprised that you've settled to read a few more pages ....

I think it's probably already 2012 where you are as I write this, but anyway,.....Happy New Year to you and your family. May 2012 be full of happiness and good health and knitting and sewing and blogging.

Anne of Avonlea! I read all the Anne books again through Project Gutenberg late last year. And all the Emily books. And The Story Girl. I... may have a problem.
