chinese new year lanterns

February 3rd marks the beginning of Chinese New Year, a holiday we celebrate with friends and family. To mark the occasion, I've re-strung two of my favorite possessions, antique metal lanterns, with vintage red velvet ribbons. My plan is to display both (one for each of my daughters) on the front porch -- let's hope the weather cooperates.

Below is a little painting I did of my treasured lanterns.
