When we got home, somehow the small flat bag holding the book mark ended up on top of my dresser. It blended in nicely, and I soon stopped noticing it was there until I did my Spring bedroom redecorating. For several weeks I carried the bag around to different stores with me trying to find a frame that didn't cost too much.
It wasn't until I stopped actively looking for a frame that I found one in my local Goodwill. The long, skinny frame was perfect, except for the plexiglass had a scratch down the center. It was only two dollars, though, so I took a chance that I could buff the scratch out.
After I removed the plexiglass from the frame I turned to the article "Plexiglass Scratch Removal" on eHow, which recommended I use a dab of toothpaste. I squeezed out a blob, then smeared it around in a circular motion and wiped it off with a clean cloth. After the first pass the scratch was better, so I repeated the process. Sadly, the scratch never came completely out but I decided I could live with the results. One day I may get around to replacing the plexiglass. Or not.
