Ginger Snow Peas

I went Xmas shopping today! Yes I did…

I went to the SCIS Holiday Bazaar in Hongqiao and I’ve got some really amazing stuff!

Among the rice breads, and crepes, and little chinese umbrellas, I’ve got 3 of Lisbeth Kaergaard Lang  knitting purses. SHE IS AMAZING!

She basically hand makes these beautiful purses in different colors and shapes at VERY affordable prices.
