Let's Take a Trip to Malaysia

My friend M. Kate of La Vie Belle sent me a wonderful gift from where she lives in Malaysia! Postcards from home! She writes a beautiful blog all about her home country and the gorgeous places to visit there. The name of her blog certainly suits all she shares. At every blog visit I make, I am transported to some of the most exotic spots in the world! Let me share with you some of the postcards she so sweetly sent!

This is a picture of a bridal chamber. So formal and romantic! Love the whispery curtains!

Here's some porcelain the bride might receive...I love the intricacy of the pink and yellow. This may be my favorite!

Whoops! Now we see a light green with a bramble of branches strewn about with pink flowers...this may be my favorite!

Then again, it could be this beautiful bird plate with the distinctive border. How's a bride to choose?

Thank you, M. Kate for sharing about your country! I so enjoy visiting Malaysia. And the best part? No flight involved, no money, no customs, just a quick visit to La Vie Belle! Take a trip, you'll be glad you did!

I do love that yellow and pink. I'm normally a yellow and red gal. But that was striking together. Thanks for sharing.
