What rhymes with orange?

A bit of a joke my dad told me when I was a wee one:  What's the only word that rhymes with orange?  Door hinge :D  (I was too young to point out that door hinge is two words, LOL).  He also taught me:
Scintillate scintillate globule vovific
Fain would I know thy nature specific
Loftily poised amidst ether capacious
Somewhat resembling the gem carbonacious :)
(Think ... twinkle twinkle little star :D)

Here are the 4 oranges book thongs (bookmarks) I finished tonight.  The oranges beads are from a seller on etsy, and the little orange voile bags are from an ebay seller in (Hong Kong, I think).  The set of bags included ORANGE bags - could that be more perfect? NO! LOL!! 

Here's a close-up of the fancy beads :)

Here are 3 of the book thongs in their little gift bags --- the 4th one has already been packed up ready for mailing to it's recipient, lol.  These little guys will go as a set with the oranges zipper bags I posted the other day :)


  1. So cute! I've got a massive stash of beads, maybe I should give these a go. How do they work? Do you put one strand in the book and the other over the front?

  2. Orange and lime green ~ love those! Did I ever post a pic of my lime green/orange quilt I made? I love it but it scared some of my students!

  3. I never would have thought of door hinge, lol! Love the twinkle twinkle little star!

    Love love love the orange book thongs in their perfect orange bags - what lovely gifts!!!

  4. Your gifts are so cute, and I love your little bags...

  5. The bags finish these off so well Sandra and they will be lovely gifts. I'm sure they will be very well received.
