B is for Bookmarks

This is #2 in my Alphabet blog hop.

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.)
