Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

I love visiting bookstores and spending time browsing the shelves for new things to read. I'm sure I share this trait with many other fans of Anne of Green Gables. Last fall, while wandering around in a bookshop, I saw this pair of delightful Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe bookmarks by Page Petal.

Page Petal makes handmade, pressed flower bookmarks featuring literary characters, fictional TV characters, and celebrities. They have bookmarks for fans of Little Women, Harry Potter, The Gilmore Girls, Barbie, Taylor Swift, and more.

The company makes three Anne of Green Gables bookmarks featuring Anne Shirley, Gilbert Blythe, and Diana Barry. There's also an Anne of Green Gables bookmark collection that includes all three bookmarks.

Here's how Page Petal describes the characters:

"Anne: Passionate, stubborn, loyal, intelligent, an articulate chatterbox. Embodying her loving and imaginative nature, the Anne Shirley bookmark is made to add a bit of wonder and whimsy to your page."

"Gilbert. Keenly intelligent, and demonstrates a sense of patience and devotion. Handmade with love, the Gilbert Blythe Bookmark is inspired by his passion and curiosity."

"Diana is a kind and sweet girl. She's polite and versed in social etiquette. Loyal and diplomatic."

Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

On another visit, the pressed flowers in the Gilbert Blythe bookmark were different. This time they were yellow.

In person, I couldn't recognize the pressed flowers. There was no description about how the flowers chosen were associated with the characters. The website does not list the flower types or explain the association either.

Personally, I associate certain specific flowers with Anne, Diana, and Gilbert, and I think flowers play a crucial role in several important scenes in the book.

What do you think of the bookmarks? Do you think the flowers chosen represent Anne, Gilbert, and Diana?
