My Gorgeous Goodies From Hong Kong

Well my Other Half got home safe and sound from his jet setting around Asia.  He brought me back some lovely presents.  I have taken some photos to show you although they are not that good a photo as some of the items are highly polished and decorative and the flash on the camera was shining on them making them look a bit weird.

My favourite bits were these three pieces of gorgeous fabrics.  They are all Chinese brocades.  The fabrics are not very wide, may be a yard wide and they are all about two yards long.  The selvage edges are not like ours over here, they are really ragged and fraying but I am sure I can make something lovely out of them, I just need to get my thinking cap on.

He also bought me this lovely Cath Kidston purse/wallet.

This gorgeous hand bag mirror

Then there was this set of fabric bags

And this lovely small pot in the shape of a ladybird

And finally a lovely set of wooden Russian dolls


  1. OOh you lucky thing! The gold/pink brocade is just gorgeous. and I love the ladybird pot.

  2. Your a lucky girl,love that ladybird,I,m so jealous.

  3. I think those brocades are gorgeous and how sweet is the ladybird.

  4. I love all your gifts - you lucky thing. Funnily enough when my daughter went to China, she bought me back a Russian Doll too. :)
