jewels in the blogosphere

lovely se'lah of the necessary room has once again sponsored a gift of jewels. random acts of giving and kindness, flowing from the blogosphere into the real world. you sign up, she matches you with another blogger somewhere in the world and you send that person a little gift and a nice card. meanwhile, someone else, somewhere, is sending you a little gift and a card. just because. and everyone's day is that much brighter.

my gift of jewels from planetmfiles arrived on saturday. it's the sweetest little crocheted bookmark and it came with the nicest, bright, cheery card. thank you gayle!!



yes, that's yann martel's life of pi, which i've owned for ages and tried to read several times, but never really got started. then, thanks to sara's photo and kristine's (i would link, but apparently her blog is now invitation only and i'm not invited. sniff.) encouragement in the BC365 flickr group, i picked it up again and this time around, i'm really liking it.

and what i sent? here's a peek, tho' i won't say to whom i sent it, in case it hasn't arrived yet:

That is the cutest little bookmark! I have always wanted to read Life of Pi, but I've never gotten around to it. I should make reading a higher priority in my life.

I am reading Life of Pi now! I finished the first part and it actually is very interesting so far.
I love your bookmark :)

I'm so glad you like the crocheted bookmark! I wanted to comment on your lovely birds a while ago, but I didn't want you to figure out that I was the person sending your gift of jewels!
