Bookmark Monday - Aloha!


Bookmark Monday - Aloha!
Since I collect bookmarks, thought it would be fun to join the Guiltless Reader for her Bookmark Monday posts!

Several years ago, I picked this wooden bookmark up during a family vacation to Hawaii. I don't usually buy bookmarks as souvenirs, but this one was so unique that I just had to have it!

Unique wooden bookmark from my Hawaiian vacation

This is the only wooden bookmark I've ever seen, and I love the cutout turtle!

Love the cutout turtle & flowers on this wooden bookmark from Hawaii!

You can't really tell in this picture, but it says "Hawaii" at the bottom.
One of my favorite bookmarks, as it's both unique and reminds me of a wonderful vacation!

    1. I loved Hawaii and want to go back someday, as we only managed to explore a little bit during our short time there. I never thought of collecting bookmarks as souvenirs before, but now I'm going to be on the lookout!

  2. Ooh lovely. I like that it's made of wood, and a bookmark as souvenir is a fun idea.

    1. That's what really caught my eye! And I love the idea of bookmark souvenirs, so not sure why it never occurred to me before!

    1. It's funny, because I have tons of them too but always wind up using the same one over and over. I even put several right next to the couch, but somehow wind up with old faithful every time!

  9. One of these days I am going to have to do a count on the bookmarks I have and never use. Lately I am all about the magnetic fold over book marks as they don't slide out. But I have bought countless bookmarks over the years as well as all the freebies I've received. I might have to take a picture.
    I agree with you though. I really like this one.

    1. I've got my collection in several different places so not sure exactly how many I have, but always wind up using the same ones. I have a few of the magnetic ones, so think I'll break those out for a test run!
