Chinatown



We spent a great day in Chinatown today...in downtown LA. We started with Dim Sum at 10am and then went across town to the FIDM Academy Nominated Films costume exhibit...wow..as usual! Then back to Chinatown for shopping and more food...yum! I got some more of the little lanterns like the one in the photos of my chinese themed doll in the previous post. They are so cute and only $1.50...plus they actually light up..love it!


Here are photos of me & hubby...we got a new camera so we had to try it out.

Year of the Dragon


Well...its taken months but here is my newest doll. She is from a class my doll club took with Arley Berryhill called Lady Peacock. The class was in October of 2007 (on my Birthday, in fact)but I just didn't have all the right accessories I wanted for her. My mom was going to China on business so I gave her a mission...find me 30 doll sized red tassels!! She did!!! I found the Chinese Lantern here in LA in China Town..it really lights up! The Dragon on her shoulders is made of rope and I found it at a Harvest Festival. I had to get her ready as she is headed to the Glendale Quilt show soon!!
