  1. My favorite book is " Alice in Wonderland " . It reminds me my childhood as the first book I read by myself ( I think I was about 7 ). Well , I'm so far from you ( Brazil ) but if I win it , I post the pic on my blog :)

    Such modern times !! :D

  2. such a pretty handmade thing. loving your handiwork. my favorite book is IF YOU WANT TO WRITE and A GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING and FORTUNE'S ROCKS. all books i could read, and will read, again and again.

  3. Ooo I really want it -especially for the blue pumpkin!!! Hmm...favourite book of all time...without a doubt is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I studied it and it appeals to the romantic within me but also to my darker side. Emily Bronte was a genius. All the Brontes were incredibly talented by Emily was the best. I always find myself quoting and remembering sections of this book...and no film director has ever EVER made an adequate adaptation of is just too powerful and brilliant to cram into a few hours - it is the language, the imagery, the energy of the author that makes it what it is - not just the actions of the characters and the storyline. I think it may be impossible to ever replicate exactly... Okay, there is my Bronte-esq burst of passion for the book! All done now... :) xxx

  4. The book closest to my heart is 'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen. It introduced me to the British countryside and I will always be grateful for that. All this old world chivalry and restrainment is also fascinating. And don't get me started on Mr Darcy...
    Thanks for the chance to win something related to books and autumn at the same time. The bookmark is beautiful!

  5. What a beautiful bookmark. I would say my most recent favorite book is by a woman named Molly Wizenberg called "A Homemade Life." It is a food memoir with each chapter containing a very personal and well-written story ending in a delicious recipe that you can't wait to make. Thanks for asking!

  6. I love your little poem on the bookmark!

    A favorite book. MY goodness. I have SO many...

    Today, I think my favorite book is, hmmm. Katherine Anne Porter's collection of Short Stories. Eudore Welty's Golden Apples, Emma by Jane Austen, A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson and most of Hemingway's works, especially A Farewell to Arms.

    I couldn't do it. I couldn't pick one.

  7. My 'desert island book' would be Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I can start reading it again the moment I finish it, and I have been reading it yearly since I was 12...a LONG time! It is not only a great mystery, but also a love story and a perfect vignette of England, her speech, morals & etiquette in one of my favourite periods, the 1930's. 'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again....' OH NO! Now I'm going to have to find it and start it all over again...! xx

  8. Oh, Dawn and Kiki..Hi ! We're still overloaded with company for almost 10 days. The're gone now. whewww !

    I am IN LOVE with the bookmark. Adorable !

    My favorite book is a cookbook (big surprise)
    "A Treasury Of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price. But I also agree with Molly about the Molly Wizenberg book. I have that too and adore it....I could go on and on..but they would probably all be cookbooks.

    And Yes, I'll work on Twitter. I am really big on my Facebook, tried Twitter and fell off the wagon. I'll give it another shot.

    I'll be in touch.
    More later.
    Happy September Weekend

    Your friends,
    Kary and Buddy

  9. How sweet! I love pretty bookmarks and you are very talented! I love any book by Adriana Trigiana. Her latest is Very Valentine and it is wonderful! I am reading The Shack right now. Thanks!

  10. Absolutely beautiful, you are so talented :)The winner is a very lucky person indeed.

    This is very difficult indeed and there is no way that I could ever choose my favourite book so instead I shall choose some of my favourite authors as love so many different genres...Sophie Kinsella, Helen Fielding, Jane Austen, Sebasitan Faulks, Joanne Harris, Candace Bushnell, Wendy Holden, BB (Denys Watkins-Pitchford), Henry Williamson, Charles Dickens, Dan Brown, Stephen King...Gosh that is a long list!

    However I can tell you that my all time favourite childhood book that I read more times than I can remember is 'The little grey men. Astory for the young in heart' by BB (Denys Watkins-Pitchford. It is a heart warming tale of The last four gnomes in England who live by a brook. The gnomes are brothers and the impetuous Cloudberry goes exploring and doesn't return. The three remaining gnomes Dodder, Baldmoney, and Sneezewort build a boat to help find him. The story is set in the heart of the English countryside, and it begins in spring, continuing through summer, and ends in autumn. I have always adored nature and as a child I was rarely indoors and this book was my ever faithful companion when I was searching for fairies and gnomes in the fields and woodlands on the farm. A darling read and a story that I shall never tire of. Here is a review to tell you more

    What is your favourite book Dawn? xo
