Pressed Flower Bookmarks

Pressed flowers are a timeless keepsake. Tucked between the pages of a treasured book, perhaps, as a token of that perfect afternoon spent in the spring sunshine, or discovered in the girlhood journal of a grandmother long passed. The activity dates back to 16th-century Japan, but became hugely popular during the Victorian era thanks to a growing interest in natural history and the sentimental language of flowers. The technique hasn’t changed much since then; flowers can be preserved between the pages of a book or magazine or with a wooden flower press.

Heart Centered Heritage

Chocolate’s reputation as an all-around favorite has origins dating back 4,000 years. Though the confectionary crowd-pleaser we know today goes through a few chemical processes (and cups of sugar) before it’s Hershey-perfect, its foundation is the cocoa bean. Known as the “food of the Gods,” drawings and texts of sacred Mayan, Aztec, and Olmec rituals feature cacao trees and the special vessels made to enjoy the bitter drink made from its seeds in daily use and ceremonies.
