Good luck & Prosperity Fishes

Hello friends! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

The waiting is over - the new lantern shipment is here! It arrived Friday in the pouring rain, which wasn't too much fun unloading. But, good news, we have had lovely sunny weekend weather in Brisbane, and I've cranked up the camera and taken loads of pics of all the new goodies!



I'm very excited that the prosperity/goodluck gold fish is back (the orange one in the middle). They were really popular for Chinese New Year and we sold out very quickly. Now available here.

I also requested some samples: new styles of fishes in green, blue, yellow and purple. So I'm wanting to ask my blog friends with impeccable taste and style (yes, that's all of you)! which, if any, I should add to the range.

Personally, I like the green and the purple the best. What do you think??

My customers tell me they use them as xmas tree decorations, in their kids bedrooms and for parties. I have my goldfish hanging in my office for prosperity! How would you use them??

Thanking you all in advance!!!! More rice paper lantern pictures to come soon ....
Cheers, Karen & Patsy www.lanternshop.com.au

They are all beautiful, but I like the blue one best (powder blue sergeant fish?). Reminds me of snorkelling in the Maldives where there are schools of thousands of these fish :-)
