Posted from Hong Kong

     Last weekend Chinese communities worldwide celebrated the Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival. Even if you weren't taking part in any events yourself you could easily hear about it on TV or social media.
      It became special to me when I received my mail from HONG KONG during this week. Why it was so special that I decided to blog about it?

No. 1 Reason
      Because it had some most beautiful stamps I have seen in a very long time. And thinking about all these plastic bags posted now-days with white label on them, doesn't matter it's posted from China, USA or EUROPE, I just loved this padded envelope with red stamps.

The Year of the Snake has arrived in our letterbox.

      Content of the envelope. It feels that we have finally found our shoe brooch
PIN BACK suppliers. We were looking for 1.5 - 2 cm size safety lock pins and after 10 month search and trying different suppliers we are happy with the quality and service.

      If you are a maker you probably will agree how hard it is to find the right source. Not to mention that it is impossible to buy everything from one supplier.

No. 3 Reason
      It remained me that I once wanted to go to CHINA -
Guangxi, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces located in southwestern part of the country. I still want to go, but I will have to wait with my travel plans until our girls grow up a little bit more. Everything has its own reason and its own time.

      I prepared this blog post earlier this week, never got time to edit and publish. Yesterday I was talking to my sister on Skype (we don't live in the same country) and she told me that our cousin is going to China this Spring. Now I can't wait until I will hear all the experience.

      Enjoy your weekend. Spring is truly here and I'm LOVING the sunshine.


  1. Very nice Liga...you really love red colour..isn't it ? the shoes in his own box...so cute !!
    red , green and the sun shine !!wellcome spring.

    1. Hi Margarita, I think I start to love red more and more. :)
      I was even thinking to put label on the box saying - SHOE BOX. They are tiny 5 x 3cm, it could be then one of the most tiniest shoe boxes.

    2. Oh, the shoe box idea is SO CUTE! (maybe shoe size as well - xs!)

  2. Holly, that is just so much fun, now my brain can't stop thinking about all this SHOE BOX idea. Thanks for your comment. :)

  3. I know what it feels like to finally find the right supplier. It can be hard work getting it right.
    And wow, yes, 'shoe box' on the box us such a cool idea...love Holly's idea re the size. LOL.

    1. Hi Anne-Marie, just thought how wonderful comments and replies can spark ideas.


I would love to hear from you!
