New goodies just in time for Chinese New Year!

Hello my dear friends! Chinese New Year is nearly upon us! February 14th 2010 (wow - coincides with Valentines Day) - Double Celebrations!!

The shipment has finally been unpacked - and here's a little sneak peak of some of the goodies! (still uploading some things on website - its taking ages).

Just in time - I have received the new 'happiness' lanterns. Perfect for New Year festivities!!



Some new colours in the very popular 20cm lantern - we now have purple, black and baby pink!



A brand new dragonfly lantern in black and white!



Party lanterns!



More designs in the wedding parasols!



All paper and silk lanterns are available at lanternshop ! Great news - the prices are all now cheaper with the new shipment as my order was so huge and the Australian Dollar favourable right now!

I must apologise for not visiting you all this week - it has been so busy here and we haven't even had time to scratch ourselves! But, I promise I have set aside a few hours today to come and see you all and see what sort of fun you've all been up to! I've missed you all!

Wishing everyone a very happy weekend :-)

Bonjour Karen,
What lovely lanterns and I really like the wedding parasols. I did not know you purchase products from Vietnam - you are so right about supporting the local community. How exciting for you, I will head over to the Lanternshop now.
Thank you as well for coming by and telling us your story, being best friends is a lovely foundation - I do hope your husband is feeling better!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful lanterns, did they come in on your last shipment of things?
I saw when you visited that you felt left out. Don't want to have you feel that way, please come back and give me a good old high five!

I love the wedding parasols! I actually wore a parasol to my sister inlaw's wedding and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved the idea, and your's are especially amazing. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
