Hi These lovely lanterns create peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.Their colors are so heart-warming and they have a nostalgic air. The lanterns we used before the mid-19th century(mostly in Edo-period) were a bit similar to these. Can you believe they were made of paper just like the Paper lanterns in burnt orange? We still use them as illuminations at festivals. As for Inger Maaike's orange thing,the Chinese lantern plant, we call it HOZUKI and in summer we have HOZUKI markets where lots of Chinese lantern plants are sold. Your posts remind me of our seasonal event. Thank you for sharing all these. I really enjoyed them!
Hi Sapphire! It's always so nice to read your comments - you always have so many lovely and great things to share! Thanks!I hope that you one day will blog more about the Japanese lantern - and Hozuki traditions....when it is season!! I would like to know more!I came to think of autumn....but actually the weather here in Denmark is almost autumn like!I like these lanterns too....for the same reasons as you....I would love to buy one, but I know the Danish taxation authorities will make me pay tax big time if I did, sooo...but oh, they are 'hyggelige' = something that makes a cosy atmosphereHave a nice time, Sapphire!!
