Un Jour, Une Tour [24]

This little tower is a bookmark. The black background opens up and each half has a little magnet inside that you clasp over a page in whichever book you're reading. The tower itself is about the size of a lapel pin.

  1. Hmmm, I have a cookie cutter that looks like your book mark. Maybe I can ice my giant cookies in bleu, rouge et blanc. How to you say le tricolor in French? I don't suppose on dit "red, white and blue" comme ici.

    I'll have to bake you some tour effiel cookies when you come down South.

  2. Le tricolore is the way you say it, or you can also say le bleu, blanc et rouge. And eiffel tower cookies sound great!

  3. Hello, I really like this bookmark. May I ask where you found it? I live in Paris, but I have an American friend who would love such a bookmark.

  4. I just wanted to add I just spent a good time reading your blog. I love the way you're describing France, the French etc. It's as if I was discovering my country for the time or maybe in another way. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Thanks, Atlantel. I think that bookmark was a gift, and I don't know where it came from ! I'll ask the giver if she remembers and let you know.

  6. The giver found it in a Hallmark store (when you care enough to give the very best) in Sunnyvale, CA.
