Something Old and Something New



Well, I couldn't resist taking home another piece of Korean furniture. I've always wanted a chest with some carving or inlay work, so we found this nice piece that is hand carved with scenes of old Korean games that you see in parklands. We intended to buy just one, but then another one caught our eye, with the rice paper lined lattice work and old brass adornment. I was trying to count in my mind's eye how many pieces of Korean furniture we have back home, and I think these will make 16 or 17! haha. I love it!

don't let the kids by that rice paper. I still want to poke holes in them! Don't know why that is such a pull. They are beautiful
