Favorite Bookmark, January 2010

My January bookmark pick is made from recycled tea bags. It's hand painted by an artist in South Africa as part of the Original T Bag Design project. This organization provides income to 124 people.

Their motto: "When Life Gives You Tea Bags, Make Art."

A Paperback Swap friend gave this to me in a holiday game. I liked it so much that I decided to turn the bookmark into a Christmas tree ornament.

Which brings me to my tree. It's still up on January 1 but today I'll begin the process of packaging the 500 plus ornaments for another year. The longest I've left a tree up is February. I hate for the holiday season to end. Maybe after the tree is put away I'll head to the beach for a long swim.

As we begin the New Year 2010, I wish all of you the best in life and plenty of good books to make the journey one to remember.

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
