Tooting My Horn about an Awesome Bookmark!

Now that I think about it, I really didn’t have anything to do with the making of this awesome bookmark. I suppose, technically, I’m tooting Book Bling’s horn.
Anyway, the point is, you’re going to hear the story I call, “The Tale of the Goose Charm” or “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait-and Win Auctions.”
So, once upon a time, I made the highest bid on an auction item to benefit the kids in Japan. Before long, Joan Stradling of Jots & Tittles contacted me and asked what charm I’d like on my bookmark (the auction item), and I said I find Gladys the Goose pretty charming, not to mention a-“muse”-ing (That sounded better in my head), and could she put a goose on a bookmark? Oh, and by the way, could she use gold thread ’cause I need a golden egg right now (as opposed to the rotten eggs I keep laying)?

A few weeks passed, and then I received word that no, goose charms are simply not available but perhaps I’d like this special charm made from Gladys the Goose’s likeness?
Oh, yes, I said, I certainly would! And then today, I found this utterly charming goose bookmark in the mail. And I’m quite sure that I shall write happily ever after!
Gladys shall hang about, inspiring me because, technically, she can’t write. (Silly goose!)

  1. Well, I don't think I can surpass irishoma's clever quip, so I'm not going to try! Just a real fun post, Cathy! I'm sure you won't cut that goose in half to get all the golden eggs at once, so I'm sure that you'll be writing happily ever after!

  2. Hmmm…I was wondering how you'd manage to toot your own horn on a charm someone ELSE made for you. I must say, nicely done. I'm impressed. You made it sound legit. šŸ™‚ And Gladys is SO cute!
