Anthropologie-inspired bookmark Review & Giveaway by "alittlelessmundane"

"alittlelessmundane" @ Etsy
I like to think of myself as a avid book reader. I love to draw myself a bubble bath and soak while nosing through an autobiography, fiction or other NY Times Bestseller. 

I have to admit that I have less and less time to relax these days, with an 8 month old, but still like to treat myself at least once a week.


Coffee Themed




It's not often that a bookmark catches my eye, I usually just use a old scrap of paper or magazine ad to hold my place. So, I was delighted to find Etsy seller, A Little Less Mundane, creating artisan-style bookmarks, that are anything BUT Mundane!




Sweet Little Cupcake Themed





A Little Less Mundane, uses vintage and current scrap fabrics and other upcycled materials from estate sales, thrift stores and tag sales to create one-of-a-kind handcrafted bookmarks.

Tiny cottages, little red dresses, birdcages and little coffee cups, reminicent of something you'd find in an Anthropologie store adorn her one-of-a-kind bookmark creations.






I was excited to receive my very own Anthropologie-inspired-fabric-birdcage bookmark to review from JoAnn at “alittlelessmundane” recently. What a perfect gift this would make, as it came wrapped in sweet tissue paper and mailed in a brown paper envelope with a cute stamp to boot! 

My nosy daughter, trying to grab the bookmark and envelope it was mailed in!

I loved the unique stitching, and handcrafted elements of the bookmark but at the same time felt like I could find this item for sale in a boutique shop on Melrose. 



Its made of linen and upcycled fabrics, so a gentle splash from the bathtub (aka. my reading room) won't hurt it. Also, if my 8 month old daughter got her hands on it (which she did) she couldn't rip up this bookmark like she has to many others!
Up-cycled fabrics = good for our earth!

Jojo”, the owner of this Amarillo, Texas based Etsy shop puts individual touches on each bookmark she creates, sometimes it's a little crystal or bead all carefully placed with love and care. 

Most of the items in her shop are $6.00-$9.00 so they make very affordable gifts. Visit “alittlelessmundane” and purchase a handcrafted bookmark for your loved one today!
