Cranes, Zen Mozaic, Celestial, SS Exchange Received

Is this pretty ?
Can you guess where this picture come from ?

Well, a jewellery box !
DH bought this mother-of-pearl lacquerware (together with the smaller one below) from Korea when he made a transit there on an official overseas trip a little while ago. Simply stunning and very fine workmanship!

This is my Christmas gift from DH. It was no secret as I chose it myself, there's what I prefer - to have what I like. I was considering a 4-GB pink one or a 8-GB black one which were what they had in the store, I decided capacity was more important than colour.

And those are not all, these are my early birthday gifts ! Of course I selected them myself, couldn't decide between the two, so I ended up with both!

And look what came in the mail today - a parcel from my Secret Santa!

Thank you, Tara! Love the colours of the beads and thread, and I like to collect buttons. I remember this brand of chocolate from a previous exchange, it was real delicious. The lovely ornament is tucked in the pretty box. So lovely!

I'm a very happy girl today!!!

Your mother-of-pearl lacquerware Jewelry box is beautiful. 25 years ago I had a friend from Korea who was living in the us and when her sister came to visit her in the usa she brought a jewelry box like yours from Korea to me. My box has MOP birds flowers and deer and the same type of closure/lock with tassle on the key. I treasure my jewelry box, it is very special. Thanks for posting a picture of yours.
