Tuesday Treasures: Bookmarks

Tuesday Treasures are the bookish distractions that catch my eye in the school library I work in on Tuesday. I'm not the librarian; I am the speech pathologist.

The library moved into my classroom due to flooding but I'm not complaining. This little old school library collection is chock full of wonderful treasures. Plus, I get to release my inner-librarian. The students who wander in looking for books assume I am the Tuesday Librarian. Can't blame them since my nose is always in a book!

Noticed this handy basket of cute bookmarks on the librarian's desk.

I wondered where she found so many... then realised they were cut from greeting cards. Clever recycling! Have you ever wished for a use for pretty cards... such a shame to just toss them in the trash. From now on, my cards will be cut into bookmarks. The prettiest will be laminated and used as lagniappes .

A few of my faves... the pale pink one has a swirly glitter pattern

Yes, I do like flowers and gardens.


  1. That is a fabulous idea, that I am definitely going to steal. I never know what to do with greeting cards after they've been displayed for a month after receiving them, and I feel so badly about what they cost.

    Thanks ;-)

  2. Well, I learned two things -- I'm not an original thinker because I never thought about the card thing, and also I love that word. Will look for a way to weave it into a convo this week. :)

  3. @P-- I know what you mean-- I'm on my way to town in a bit and I'm going to look for some scrapbooking scissors that cut pretty scallops.

    @Kim--- It is a great word, isn't it. I do weave it in every chance I get-- I'm planning a NOLA trip soon just so I can hear it and use it in its natural environment-- actually, I'm going for dining ect but maybe I'll get a few lagniappes while I'm there--- see I'm weaving it in again! ;o)
