My little corner of China...

After hanging up my latest Chinese checkerboard, I decided that I needed to update my blog with a few pictures of my favorite Asian collections found in my craft room

Soaring high above the checkerboards is a paper goldfish kite purchased while in Beijing.   The purple CNY lion puppet was purchased in Guangzhou.

The outfit/fan and silk tiger hat were once worn by Josie.  The honeycomb lantern garland is a gift from Renee (My Vintage Mending).

The suitcase is serves as storage and the perfect mini table to display a variety of special treasures.

Paper lanterns and tissue flowers remind me of festive party decorations.

 These vintage mini lantern lights are on my pink feather tree.  I love their tiny red tassels.

 The pin cushion was purchased from Beth's Bagz.   Isn't her pink jacket and little kitten so sweet?.

I definitely have a special place in my heart and in my craft room for China.

Great (and special) collection. Those little paper lanterns are one of my favorites. And I love how the chinese checkerboards look so graphic on the walls.

Yes you do, and it's magical. It also reminds me, I have something to send to you, too. Sheesh, I just sent out 10 packages on Wednesday, and forgot to do yours. I'll get to it as soon as I quit gluing all the miniature ornament boxes for E's swap...;o)

Hugs,

Your craft room is such a special place, I am so envious of all the special touches. That little girl with her kitten is just perfect for you! Such an inspiring space to create beautiful things. I know a number of people who would be interested in this corner so I am going to share the link.

All your collections have turned your craft room into such a bright and inspiring place. Fun for Jose as well that she will grow up to learn about all those little bits and pieces of China and see how you embrace them.

I couldn't possibly love a post more than this one! Your craft room is so lovely. I have a wonderful vintage card that will fit right in that I will include with your ornaments. Your Halloween paper art on Dominoes is such a great idea. There is always so much to see and enjoy here. Thank you for sharing. Elizabeth
