Hope and Adventure!

Rui Rui's Design packages are set & ready to leave their home to start their new adventure.....what sights they may see along the way! What a though eh! 
I hope they last for many years to come, and be found in some secret box in the year 2222AD I would hate to think of them ending up in the recycling bin... like so many bought cards these days. I guess this is what separates hand-crafted design & made cards from your heavily manufactured designs that we see in so many of todays shops. Sob!
They maybe a cheaper alternative, but will they really put a smile on the receivers face?? 

Let me know what you think? 
and meanwhile happy travels!! x

Ready for Mr. Postman

Nervous about the journey ahead!

Notebook Mania!

I'm slightly obsessed when it comes to notebooks and have an ever expanding collection of my own! My favourite place for scouting notebooks has to be in the one and only, amazing city of Seoul, South Korea.

Rui Rui's Wish List

 Just seen some very beautiful homeware pieces from Vintage bluebird.......just a shame I can't buy as they would be pretttttty difficult to take back to China :( Lets hope they make their way over there soon! 
For those of you who do like here in the UK get yourselves straight onto their website: http://www.vintagebluebird.co.uk/ and get some shopping done.
