TAKE A LOOK…

Take a look at my Pinterest page – http://tinyurl.com/kkbdypq – there are over a thousand new Mah Jongg pictures pinned there recently like this one:

Mah-Jong Tiles from China, China

MAH JONG MAGNIFICENCE

Look at this magnificent set, courtesy of the Mah Jong Museum (owned and operated by the website, Where the Winds Blow and founded by the wonderful Jim May), made and carved in China probably in the early 1920s. The tiles are made of bone and then backed with ebony wood. I love this set not only for its beauty and craftsmanship but also because the tiles represent such incredible sentiments and meanings – you can read the translations for the tiles’ ideographs on the museum’s website.

My favorite translation encompasses the entire set, based on the Buddhist tale, “Heaven girls playing with flowers.” I love this set because of the kind, generous, and happy meanings of the tiles but especially for the magnificent and intricate Flowers. Beautiful carvings filled with beautiful thoughts to take with us into the new year.

Wouldn’t it be a treat to play Mah Jongg with this set? To see other beautiful and rare sets, go to the website for the Mah Jong Museum and have a great time!

HELPING HANDS!

I love these matte black racks with helping hand pushers attached. Of course, there is nothing like the vintage racks made of Catalin but for those old sets that come without racks, these will do in a pinch!

ENROBED MAH JONGG SET!

One thing I have longed for is to own an enrobed Mah Jongg set. And so, it broke my heart to see those magnificent and fairly rare tiles broken up from several different enrobed sets to make a bracelet.

MAH JONGG ZEN!

I start each morning with a cup of coffee that I place on top of these colorful and fun coasters.
