We are busy working on our etsy holiday gift set this week. We are going to create a 2011 calender. Here is some photos for the calender sets. Do you guys have any comments for us?
I visited Wales in 2003, I totally forgot the names of the exact places cuz it is way tooooooo long. But it is interesting. How would people mail postcard if I wanna write to the people there? Their address would have occupied my own card. haha
Hong Kong retro postcard by G.O.D . They have a big series of retro postcards and also other products. Those Enamel Flasks (we called those vacuum bottle) are products from Mainland China and you can find them every where in Hong Kong in the old days. You may still find them in Mainland China now.
4th Anniversary party notice from Bedrock Records in London.
It should be out in 2003.
The color treatment is what I like about this postcard. It is modern but a bit old. It's simple but stylish. It is regular but the letter 'B' stands out.
Again it's London!! London always gives a great sense of art, whether modern or classic, you must find something inspiring and fantastic.
The solemnness of the Parliament House area has changed to a playful, modern space with a cute red London bus.
As we are joining a holiday work camp by etsy, we have to think of doing a holiday gift set as a new product. We love photographs so we plan to use our photo works to create a calender set for 2011. Imagine those square cards (in blue and black) are the monthly schedule and back of the cards would be our photographs. So the year after, you don't have to throw away the outdated calender but you can serve it as a decoration.
We have tried out the idea last weekend with bamboo sticks and used magazine. Hope it works and you guys will like it. Check out our etsy store later. It would probably be a calender gift set with our handmade tote. It would be a perfect gift for your girls.
Brown Sugar Pudding -- we, Hong Kong people called it in Cantonese ''Buut Jai Go'' (meaning pudding in a small bowl) It has always been an inexpensive dessert for common people. It is made with brown sugar (there's a flavour of white sugar and the pudding goes in white) and some red beans in between.
The local designer has made a series of traditional snack of HK. I bought this few years ago so I have already forgotten who make this and what other design does he have. But I'm sure this is my favourite as I love to eat that and the cute postcard just remind me of the taste.
This is actually not a postcard but a normal blank card. I love the colorful balloons. The blue motorcycle is Bangkok's symbol - Tuk Tuk. You may not see a real Tuk Tuk holding so many balloons on crowded street there but you definitely would feel the ''colors and hospitality'' during your stay.
Camp Coffee Ad and Fry's Cocoa Ad in 19th century. Lovely postcards reproduced by Robert Opie Trading and I grabbed them in Central, Hong Kong. They are just too cute...Don't you agree with me?I especially love the black cat waiting with the kids together.
The color of the vintage stuff is always special and sharp.
