@Simona !!! Look what just arrived! I'm so happy that this gorgeous and thoughtful Slovenian package was not lost in the mail after all. Where was it for 2.5 months?! And fellow Litsyers ... she attached the English translation to every page for the book on the right (a beautifully creepy little ballad, written by the author of the Slovenian national anthem). Thank you so very much. 😍 I'm getting an extra little parcel together to send to you. 😘

julesG @Simona is a wonderful Litten with a giant generous heart. 💖😍 3y
Moray_Reads How lovely! (That hedgehog looks so sad and wistful) 3y

Zelma Fabulous and thoughtful gift! ❤️ 3y
LeahBergen @Simona I couldn't believe it when I saw it! I've read Povodni Moz and the first story in the Folk Tales. They are simply wonderful and the illustrations are spectacular. I will use the little spoon at my book club meetings as I often bring dips. 😍 3y
LeahBergen @Simona The pen is so cute (I have a holder full of interesting pens on my library table) and I'm saving the chocolate. 😄 And now I have ANOTHER one of your lovely bookmarks. Thanks so much again. 😘 3y
LeahBergen @julesG She most certainly is. ❤️ 3y
LeahBergen @Moray_Reads He's crying in one of the illustrations! 3y
LeahBergen @DeborahSmall She is!! 💗 3y
batsy A lovely package! And spoons like that are my mum's #obsession ☺️ So pretty. How wonderful to also have the translations by @Simona 3y
Simona @LeahBergen Day after - and I'm still in shock 😲 and the books looks undamaged! I can be your permanent supplier of bookmarks 😂😉😘 3y
Hobbinol How wonderful! She even accessorized the books! ❤️ 3y
tpixie Lovely grouping of presents @Simona outdid herself! And the translations- what a wonderful touch. Lovely spoon 🥄 3y

Oh, @Simona . I am absolutely in LOVE with these beautiful, handmade bookmarks. You truly outdid yourself and I'm so touched. Everything about this gift is so thoughtful - the postcards and magnet from Slovenia, the bookish pin and your wonderful handicrafts. Thank you so very much! ❤️❤️❤️ These beauties will hold a very special place in my bookmark box. 😍 #MadMarch

Texreader So gorgeous!!! 3y
Moray_Reads @Simona Those bookmarks are so pretty! 3y
Simona I was so nervous about this second envelope (it should arrived in 7 days and today is 18th day) ... and I still have hope that 'take one' will be found and delivered to you! 😊😘 3y
Simona @shawnmooney I like sharing, especially book-love❣️😘 3y
Simona @Moray_Reads Thank you 😊 3y
DeborahSmall @Simona gorgeous bookmarks ❤️️ 3y
Simona @DeborahSmall Thank you❣️ 3y
Jas16 Gorgeous! 3y
LeahBergen @Simona I was so worried for you that this one wouldn't show up after all your work! What book did you use to make the kimonos? I've been reading them and trying to figure it out ... 😄 3y
Simona Well, looks like that book-exchange can be very stressful for all involved parties 😅 Book is one of my favorites (I still have my copy) 3y
LeahBergen @Simona I haven't read that one yet! I've looked at it enough that the print on the bookmarks somehow looked familiar to me, though. I have The Name of the Rose on my TBR shelf. 3y
Simona I love The Name of the Rose❣️ It's so perfect crafted and so incredible layered story! 3y
Simona I don't know if you saw this ... but Eco is bookish badass https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jQYnz7Oqr20 3y
LeahBergen @Simona I did see that! Isn't it amazing? Now you've inspired me to read The Name of the Rose very soon (and buy Foucault's Pendulum, too). 3y
Aleida Those Japanese girl bookmarks are precious. 3y

#Bookmail is always good mail, especially on Monday's. @LeahBergen you know me well 😉I admire and I like (very much ❤️) your bookmark idea with very personal touch. I also love to use postcards as the bookmarks, and this is my first from Canada. Thank you 🙏
P.S. Now, I am officially worried for my shipment, because it was dispatched from Slovenia on March 16 as priority mail! Tomorrow I'm going to post, and I will let you know, what is wrong.

LeahBergen Yay!! I'm so glad it arrived! ❤ 3y
Simona I'm glad too, but with bitterness in my heart ... I don't get any information, neither in my postoffice, nor in Canada post website, because "Tracking is not available for international registered mail items sent to Canada". @LeahBergen (edited) 3y

LeahBergen Don't worry about it! It may still arrive and if not, that's okay, too. 😘 3y
Simona @LeahBergen I worry, that is the way I function 🤗 I was in the postoffice and they agree with me, that something is wrong 😤 ... and they will be trying to locate the package ... this process can takes from one to two months, and in the meantime, I'm going to send you some my new attempts of handwork. 3y
LeahBergen Oh! That's so sweet of you but you really don't need to go to all the trouble. Of course, I would love it, though. 😂 The other one may still show up. 💗 3y
