Turkey & Poop

 

A few weeks ago, Natalie over at Tell Me About It held a poop contest – yes, a contest about poop – and I was one of the 2 winners. The prize was 2 beautiful bookmarks from Turkey, which is where she and her family live.

Bookmark #1

Bookmark #2

Side 2

the colors int he bookmark are 1000 times better than the photo

 

Natalie included a note with the bookmarks to let me know that the 2nd bookmark was made using a form of water painting known as Ebru, or paper marbling. She had featured it in a post a few months ago along with a video of the process, and a few examples.

Now I can throw away the Wal-Mart receipt, old lottery ticket, and Wallflower boxtop I’ve been using to keep my place. Thanks Natalie!

If you’re here you’ve probably got some free time, so go over and say hello to Natalie and learn some fascinating things about Turkey.

    Woo! Congrats on your win. As someone who has, at any given time, 5 or 6 books in progress, I can appreciate a good bookmark. And those sure are beauts!

    Thanks! I can only read one book at a time, but I usually go through it in 2 or 3 days. And I only read right before I go to sleep. Hopefully I don’t lose these!
