Poppy

The woven bookmark with a red poppy from England. Simple, but nice.



Poppies have long been used as a symbol of both sleep and death: sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of their blood-red color.

Bookmark and Letter

The bookmark from Mia who lives in Saint Petersburg, Russia. She got that bookmark in one of the bookshops on Nevsky prospect.



Mia wrote me a letter, not a note, but a letter!!! It was so good to read it, because I really miss letters. Frankly, I can't find any spare time to write letters, but I love to receive them :)
Do you like writing or reading letters?

Hamsa

This bookmark with the hand of Fatima (hamsa) is also from Morocco, bought by my sister.



The hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The hamsa is often incorporated in jewellery and wall hangings, as a defense against the evil eye.
Another Arabic name for the hamsa (or khamsa) is the hand of Fatima, commemorating Fatima Zahra, the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad.
