Book Lover Soldered Pendant "Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier." (Kathleen Norris) by Cobweb Corner

The dyed, decorated non woven material that is used to cover the front and back covers as well as the insides, is so beautiful and truly unique. A one of a kind. Use it as a scrapbook album, a visitors book, a (travel) journal, a sketchbook. by SewDanish

Modern Blue Green and Gray Architectural Lines Stationary This boxed set is perfect for the contemporary loved one in your life. Each flat note card is adorned with hand-drawn chartreuse, baby blue, and light gray lines. "Hello" is written in a light gray architectural font. by DawnCorrespondence

Are You Blessed Bookmark Giving a gift to someone who loves to read? Add a handmade bookmark to complete the package. This one is black denim with a black and white vine print on the back. by DestinationHandmade

Mighty Oak Bookmark This bookmark is geared for the man in your life. It is a more substantial metal bookmark with ornate engraving. Black glass beads and a metal acorn bead ending with a metal leaf charm complete your gift.
