The Little Koo blog turns 3!

Wow, I have been blogging for three years now, can you believe it? This little blog started off with the intention of promoting the Little Koo Etsy shop (don’t forget about the closing down sale btw, only 5 more days!) but I enjoyed writing about Hong Kong so much that it ended up being mostly about the things I see and do here, with a bit of craft stuff thrown in.

So, in celebration, I thought I’d recap some of my most popular posts over the last few years. Maybe you haven’t seen them yet, or maybe you’ve just forgotten! On the topic of Hong Kong, here are some of the most-seen posts over the last few years:

I hope you’re enjoying my Candid Hong Kong series too, where I post random photos I’ve taken around Hong Kong to show a snapshot of life here.

Outside of Hong Kong, I’ve also blogged about some of our travels around Asia. My posts about our holiday in Malaysia where we stopped off at the Cameron Highlands, Georgetown (Penang) and Langkawi have also been pretty popular.

On the craft side, my post about buying craft supplies in Hong Kong has been by far and away the most popular post I’ve ever written. I’ve tried to make it a really useful resource, and I’m constantly updating and adding to it. However, I do love to make things myself with the supplies I find, and these have been some of my most popular ‘makes’:

Fabric covered shell handbag

Covering a box clutch purse – a no sew handbag!

 

Handmade wire button heart

Ok, so that’s it for my round up. What’s your favourite post? Have you ever tried any of the crafts I’ve featured on this blog? I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading!
