Chinese New Year is celebrated at the second new moon after the winter solstice and falls between January 21 and February 19 on the Gregorian calendar. 2009 will be the Year of the Ox.
WOW! How to mark all of these things? With a BLUE, Chinese-inspired giveaway, of course! Please note that this giveaway is separate from my One World, One Heart Giveaway that ends February 11.
For your viewing pleasure is this beautiful wristlet with a bamboo ring. The gorgeous Chinese silk is embroidered with many different flowers in greens, golds, and pinks. Inside it is big enough to hold all of your basics: cell phone, money, identification, keys, tissues, Chapstick! To enhance the look on your other wrist is this set of 3 enameled cloisonne bangle bracelets. They are decorated with flowers and are cream, dark blue, and green.
