Custom-made silk signage

Hello friends! Look what I got in China!!

A custom painted silk scroll in Chinese characters for 'Lanternshop'. I just love it. Its now proudly hanging on my office door - I'm positive it will make me more prosperous!! :-) I also have some other styles which I'll show you when they are photographed - these will go in my warehouse/shop!



And here's my happiness hanging - love this too :-)



I've just about finalised the details for the next container!! So many great new designs of solar, led, paper, metal lanterns, fans, party decorations and more!! Very exciting .......

Also, its my birthday tomorrow!!! :-) Yippeee!! I'm having a 12 hour sale at www.lanternshop.com.au to celebrate!
Guess this means I'll be extra busy on Wednesday!! Have a happy week!!

My dear Karen-

I really hope- all those wonderful things will bring you luck in every way you need it :-)
I love such things, too :-)
I am sure- if I would visit China, I ´d need an extra suitcase for such little things...
I have many wonderful chinese things in my living room- black laquered furniture- little figures- I love it!
Thank you for showing:-) so I will write on a little paper next to my pc- think of Karens birthday :-)

Hugs, Ines

Oooh happy happy day. The silk sign is beautiful. There is beauty in calligraphy and it makes it nicer if you know the meaning.

Happy birthday. May the new year makes beautiful memories.

Ooo, I am loving that sign!! And great idea hanging it up at work, I figure that the more stuff I can hang up around my cubicle while I drone away at work- the better. I love how inspired you are by the culture.
