Tigers and Pretzels and Hearts, oh my

February 14th, 2010

Today is new year’s day in the lunar calendar, ringing in the year of the Tiger. I tooled around on Etsy to find some terrific tigerly stuffs…

  1. Orange Tiger stripe dangler earrings by MountainManCreations
  2. Tiger hat by Jackthemanabouttown
  3. Year of Tiger Canvas Field Bag by namu
  4. Tiger Pocket Mirror by SparklePaw (also available on a greeting card)
  5. Zombie Tiger Mask Print by MATTY8080
  6. Tiger Lampwork Beads by perfectlyadorned
  7. T is for Tiger (Limited Edition Print) by jenniferfrench

So yes, I’m doubled up for holidays this fine Sunday — with new year’s and Valentine’s. The first part of the day, John and I headed over to my parents for a terrific lunch, which included red bean rice cake dessert. Then we partook in a centuries-old Taiwanese New Year’s tradition: making soft pretzels. (Okay okay, I’m having some fun with you there… but I really would love for it to become a family tradition!)

Pretty simple (and fun) to make, and absolutely deeeelicious.

So now, just minutes before 8 p.m., I’m still so stuffed to the gills that I can’t imagine having dinner anytime soon. Good thing we didn’t want to deal with Valentine’s traffic and decided to forego dinner reservations tonight! Burrrrp. Plus, John is on the computer dealing with a work issue that came up. Ah, romance!
