South Korea Vacation Part 30 - Final Post

In October, it will be a year since our latest trip to South Korea and this is my final post. We did so many things the two weeks we were there and I am surprised I had 30 posts on our adventures. It really was too much in too short of time and I think next time we go, we will go for three weeks. Hellena, our dear friend lives in Busan and we will always need a trip there whenever we visit. We also have many friends in the Seoul area and then when you add in shopping and some craft classes, the days flew by. The photo above I took while visiting Hellena in Busan. We were eating at a restaurant and there was a darling little girl eating with her family. She removed her shoes under the table and I found the shoes enchanting.
A swarm of hanboks in the subway in Seoul.
We also went to Dongdaemun to pick up some fabric and I found the special fabric I was looking for. My favorite vendor went out of business years ago and I haven't found a consistent replacement.

I love this panoramic view Rocketman shot.
I also stopped by my favorite Dongdaemun underground bojagi fabric shop. I didn't leave empty handed. I have a project in mind but I haven't hand time to start it. But I could look at this bag all day long. The colors are so beautiful.
She also was selling darling handmade stitched heart pendants. I couldn't resist.

She also had these handmade apple pins.
Hannah gave me the latest obsession. It is a piece of plexiglass and you rub it over your nails and your nails look like you put a coat of clear nail polish on them. Pretty cool!
The fabric I bought in Dongdaemun.
I will always treasure this owl ring that Metal Guy gave me. His talent takes my breath away.
We are not going to Korea this year and that's the first time we haven't returned since we lived there. But I have a feeling we will be returning in 2017. It calls to both myself and Rocketman. I just need to talk Rocketman into three weeks.
Here is a video of a cool baby item Hellena had for her twin. The baby chews and can eat the fruit juice:

  1. I love the hanbok pic! I have a couple of those hair ribbons. (But I'm not supposed to use them now that I'm married, I guess!)
