Weekend before last, my friend and I watched Les Miserables on stage in Singapore. I wanted to buy souvenirs but didn’t find anything I liked, which ended up being a good thing because I bought stuff from a movie memorabilia store in the same building as the theater instead. Here are my new bookish necklaces:
Time turner from Harry Potter
One Ring from Lord of the Rings
If only they worked on real life! I would love to be able to go back in time and to become invisible whenever I wanted to. Sigh, I have to made do with reality. But at least I can wear these the next time I have my bookish outfit on.
Book blogger Leila of Bookshelves of Doom has a lovely Etsy shop. She combines two of my favorite things by making pendants from book-themed stamps. For someone who loves books, postcards and stamps as much as I do, you’d think that I would have bought something from her shop a long time ago. I kept resisting because I’ve never tried buying from Etsy before and I’m always a bit hesitant to try shopping from a new-to-me online store. Finally gave in and ordered a few weeks ago. A package was waiting for me when I got to the flat today:
Curious about what’s inside? Check them out:
One stamp has a section of a map of Middle-earth from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The other stamp shows bookworm Matilda, as illustrated by Quentin Blake, from Roald Dahl’s novel of the same name. I would have been thrilled to receive postcards with stamps like these but they’re even better as pendants because now I get to show them off. 😛
What do you think of these stamp pendants? 🙂
