Been absent at the blog for quite some time.  
Days spend leisurely reading is upon us, a common 
ritual here during summer.  Books are an important ingredient
for summer around here, as is pool time, lemonade 
and ice cream cones (like coffee ice cream in waffles cones).

Did, however, take the time to make a couple of bookmarks to 
match a couple of my current reads:

The Lake House by Kate Morton.  LOVED IT!  
It's her latest which was released last fall and somehow I
missed this.  Stumbled upon while searching for a different book
and promptly checked it out from my local library.  Did not

Bookmark using watercolor paper and using the flower image
from Butterfly Basics.  Phrase from a stamp set from 
Papertrey Ink.  Ink: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss Pool Party and
copper embossing for the bottom part.

The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
This was Kate's third novel and I had already read it a few years back
but I couldn't remember all the details and decided to read
it again.  Still just as good as the first time!

Bookmark:  Stamp set Simply Sketched on watercolor paper, using
Elegant Eggplant color and Lost Lagoon ink with a watercolor brush.
Doodles are my own.

Friday is almost here.  Enjoy the coming weekend!
