My new favorite scrolls from the Choson Period hanging in our tearoom.
A very generous gift from our closest friend and patriot.

And now for something completely different.
My coworkers order chinese food sometimes, (suprisingly good food actually) and everytime they receive a bonus (like a bottle of liqueur and stuff like that).
Today´s gift was a scroll calendar for 2011 :lol: :lol: :lol:

To Tim and JBaymore, your houses look so amazing and relaxing! JBay, I don't think I've ever seen chairs like that before. Very cool!

greentam,


Thanks. Yes..... the tearoom is a nice place to be.

Those low chairs made for tatami mats are actually pretty common new additions in Japan. I was introduced to them at a friends place in Motegi years ago.....and got some for the washitsu heya (Japanese room).

Here's a different style but the same concept:

Changing of the Scroll Day

This is a little tea ceremony scroll that I found at an antiques flea market at Toji in Kyoto a few weeks ago. (I still need one of those devices that lets me hang the scrolls at various heights.)
