For some reason I just love Chinese lanterns. They make me happy, even when I am stuck at home with a miserable summer cold, and dreading facing my furious boss after missing two days of work. SIGH. :)

Sorry about your cold. Great pictures!

I too love paper lanterns. Whenever I go to Chinatown I get so happy when I see the first one, letting me know I've arrived.

Hope you feel better soon and your furious boss calms down! They are really beautiful! I want my backyard filled with them!

Jen said...

Happy little things they are. I hate a boss that makes you feel bad when you're sick. F-him/her. Feel better guilt free!

Claire Kiefer said...

They're pretty beautiful and vibrant. We have plenty of them here in SF. :) Hope you feel better ASAP!

I've always wanted a few of these babies, but can't find them. I thought Chinatown would have them, but would you believe that they do not!

I love those lanterns. I visited Hong Kong and Macau on China Day a few years ago and both places were just covered with the paper lanterns. I even brought back lanterns from Hong Kong for my niece and nephew. If you ever get the chance to visit Hong Kong, you absolutely must.

Poor you! I hope you feel better soon! I hate people who make you feel bad for being sick, as if you can plan it for a more convenient time. I hope the karmic wheel sends a nasty cold in the mean old boss' direction! (Love the lanterns).

I LOVE them too!!! I have one hanging in my porch...I should get more though cause it kind of looks out of place. I like the look when there are oodles of them.

Hope you are feeling better....dang ass colds.
