The local market looked a bit more festive than usual when we visited it today for our weekly shop.
And then it hit us- the sounds of cymbals clashing and drums beating, a lion dance to celebrate the Chinese new year!
This lion moved pretty fast through the crowd! I managed to squeeze in a shot before it finally disappeared into the market!
There was a little stall set up in the square which was giving out free chinese calligraphy pieces….
We were lucky enough to snare ourselves this huge piece of prosperity! Perfect to hang and invite luck into the house!
All this festivity has inspired me to start prepping some wool for another knitting project! So I dug deep into the stash bag and pulled out this gorgeous skein of deep red aptly named “Bucharest”!
Can’t wait to get started on it!
Hope your Saturday is going great! Till later folks!
