Sorry for the lack of updates this week (>_<). We planned a little renovation of our house, to finally make it winter proof. As usual with these sort of things it took a little longer than expected and there were some technical problems. Luckily my dad is very good with electrical circuits -yay- and eventually (read: after unplugging every device) we figured out that the dishwasher had died on us. Metin and I ended up romantically doing the dishes together by hand today ^_^ On a brighter note the house is much better isolated now, so my fingers are no longer freezing off when typing an update, woohoo!
On to Throwback Thursday, today I want to introduce you to Barunson. It’s a Korean Company that makes cute stationery and was especially popular about a decade ago. You might remember it from characters such as Penn-Penn, Cafe Pupu, Mini Valley and Sleeping Co. At the time Barunson offered freebies like wallpapers and printables on their website.
The characters were accompanied by great expressions such as: ‘I wanna tell sweet stories to everyone who wishes to have sweet dreams’. The Penguin Penn-Penn tops it of with: ‘Although you’re dull and stupid you’re my best friend.’
The Barunson website is still online and you can find more cute pictures by clicking on the characters menu-item. As far as I could tell there’s a Barunson shop in Gangnam (yes from Gangnam style :D).
I’ve placed some of the old cute Barunson letterpaper printables in a zip file for you to enjoy.
