Today's blog post is all about reading with style!
I must admit when I was younger I used to bend the pages instead of using a bookmark, but I soon learned to appreciate the true value of how wonderful books are. I started using a variety of paper bookmarks, tags and cards and still often do, although for some of my favourite books (which I go back to over time), I started creating bookmarks that complemented my book collection! These creations have spilled over into my Miss Bohemia and Etsy shop and I have some new ones to share with you.
This collection includes some vintage styled bookmarks and shabby chic / heart themed bookmarks too.
To celebrate the month of February, today's feature looks at designs that follow the February birthstone 'Amethyst' and the birthstone colour 'Purple'! Amethyst actually comes under the colour purple and is part of a wide spectrum ranging from lavender to plum!
Purple is said to represent magic,mystery as well as spirituality. You may find the perfect gift amongst these purple hues mixed with pewter,silver or gold pate and inspired by fantasy, fairytales and magic!
New in at Miss Bohemia this month is this fabulous Lilac 'Marie Antoinette' Keepsake Box! The box has had a special make-over to give it a distressed look and has also been made to sparkle through silver and purple glitter. I've included a picture of the back of the box to show the fairytale message and enchanting border! This keepsake box was designed by my talented sister 'Sammi' :-)
My Miss Bohemia range is also available through a handmade online marketplace called Etsy here! I was lucky enought to be featured in this amazing treasury (collection of designs curated by other Etsy members) called 'Full of Hearts'! This treasury featured my 'Love' Heart Keepsake box! Last Saturday (21st January) I found that this treasury was picked (from thousands of other amazing treasuries) and featured on Etsy's 'Front Page' and here's the snapshot :-)
