I hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday Season! I love online shopping - and Etsy is one of my favorite places to shop! Recently I purchased a cute bookmark that says #bookstagram on it. ( see picture below ) Its so cute! I love it! The Etsy shop that I purchased this bookmark from is called LittlePaperMama - her Etsy shop is closed for Christmas, but you can follow her on her Instagram site for updates.
Recently, I read information online about "The Charm Bracelet" by Viola Shipman. This book sounds really interesting to me and I'm looking forward to reading it! I had a Charm Bracelet when I was young, the memories associated with the charms are sweet and meaningful. Charm Bracelets make wonderful Gifts for all ages! (And, for future gifts...its always fun to buy more charms for the Bracelet!) From the Authors website
