I wonder how many paper stars - I once read the number of paper stars has something to do with love or luck or maybe both.

thanks. yes, it's about a loss.


thank you. :)


easy there! :)


yes, it can be for both, and the number can have some significance. e.g. 129 - 'forever love', 365 - a year of blessings.

Wishes upon paper stars. Just wonderful! I love the simplicity, no, the delicacy of this.
