B is for Bookmarks

This is #2 in my Alphabet blog hop.
Feel free to join in or pass this on to friends.
Just add a link to your blog post in the comments section below.

I have been collecting bookmarks since I was little.

In fact I still have (& use) a bookmark I bought in 1984 from Coffs Harbour (the one with the koala on it - it also has my 16 year old signature on the back!)

I collect bookmarks that are personal. I collect bookmarks from places that I visit and from exhibitions I've been to.

Friends give me bookmarks from their travels too and I also enjoy making bookmarks.

Other bookmarks just have sentimental value.

I love finding old bookmarks in favourite books - they not only mark the spot, but they mark a place in time in my heart.

(One of my favourite blogs is Forgotten Bookmarks - it makes me want to tuck away photos, postcards, newspaper articles and tickets into all of my books for some future reader to discover and wonder over.)

  1. Great bookmarks! I especially like the cat bookmark. :)


I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
