"To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare." ~ Kenko Yoshida
Happy Leap Day!
I am hoping this extra day yields a little time for diving into a good book.
With February reading in mind, I made several Valentine bookmarks with pink velvet ribbon and scraps of lace trim.
Heart-shaped silver charms and lockets, pink beads and framed clip-art of a rose make these bookmarks perfect for tucking into a favorite love story.

Several of these bookmarks are heading to our teachers, who are busy celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday with a full week of reading-themed activities.
"In reading, a lonely quiet concert is given to our minds; all our mental faculties will be present in this symphonic exaltation." ~ Stéphane Mallarmé
