Départ Pour L’Orient

Posted by helen on December 24, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I came across someone’s blog and saw the promo picture of Integrity Toys’ new doll “Départ Pour L’Orient”. I thought the dress might be good for Silkstone Dolls. so I tried one this evening.

Finally “Red Moon” has something suitable & something new for 2015:

The fabric features the upsidedown  Chinese Character “Fortune” written in different forms.  so why the pattern is upside-down,  Wikipedia explains:

When displayed as a Chinese ideograph, is almost universally displayed upside-down on diagonal red squares. The reasoning is based on a wordplay: in nearly all varieties of Chinese: the words for “upside-down” (倒, Pinyin: dào) and “to arrive” (到, Pinyin: dào) are homophonous. Therefore, the phrase an “upside-down ” sounds nearly identical to the phrase “Good luck arrives”. Paste the character upside-down on a door or doorpost thus translates into a wish for prosperity to descend upon a dwelling.
