Chinese Lanterns

I love the colour of these and the way they decay... leaving a lacey feeling with a seed in the middle of them ......

Oh love them too!! I have some also and wrote on mine for Holloween, put them in a pail, like the nice red seed inside. They go skeletonish, we'll have to get Luci's ruling for that word.

These were part of the magic that sometimes one feels when one is a child. I thought the papery feel of them was real paper, orange paper, which couldn't be but was. There was only one place I knew where I could find them and I sought them out each year until I was 15 and too old for magic. But I've regained the magic sense and found them again in Portland -- and have been know to sneak a few home with me. -- June
