I was homebound as per doctor's orders on the last wk preceeding CNY. Did some paper crafts with ideas from www.chinesenewyearlanterns.blogspot.com.
Flower lanterns.. I love making these and I made a couple more for my sister and fathers. On nights I could not sleep ,, I was stapling away in the toilet !!! -- - so as not to wake up hubs and Amber.
I kept 4 lanterns for our house and hung it down the stairway like this :
We filled up our vases with some fake peonies and cherry blossoms :
and a few more ding ding dang dangs here and there... the house was filled with tong tong chiang mood. :D
Today's Chap Goh Mei , I think we'll let the decors hang around for a couple of weeks or until my confinements over before we pull it down.
