saison dupont

We bought Belgian beer yesterday.
Saison Dupont is a flavourful beer.
It has cork on the bottle, doesn't look like a regular beer, also the label is a cool look.

Dogmaw glass featured my item, thank you very much!

Purple beauty

I just finished & took photos of my products!
The idea was in my mind so long time and finally I made these pieces.
Beret, pin, scarf, three piece set.
Making the fringe for the scarf was fun.I took out the thread one by one to leave the other thread for the fringe.

I finally bought some flowers.
As I used to wrote about, I needed flower for treatment for myself.
Huge ice cream is still in my freezer so in this time I bought some flowers without changing my mind.
I choose iris. (not like huge bouquet on the photo, I just bought a few)
They remind me Japan.
From our tradition, Japanese put iris leaves in bath in early May.

I didn't put them in the bath but they show me beautiful brooming in this morning.

The perfume shoppe

My boyfriend loves perfumes.
He often goes to a perfume shop called "the perfume shoppe".

I like perfumes too but I don't have passion for them as he loves
I went to the store with him yesterday.
The lady in shop is really interesting.
Everytime we go there, she make us happy with talking.
She can know whose scents will fit for customers or they like with talking.
It is like a healing or magic.
She is open mind for everyone, everyone talk with her opens mind to her.
I like to listen her talking.

Flowers or Icecream?

What do you do when you felt little bit tired or not good feeling?
I do eating Ice cream, buying flowers, listening mellow musics and walk and walk for long distance.
Today I wasn't feeling good from some reason and I thought to buy flowers for having some good inspiration.
When I went to supermarket and saw some bulk ice creams I changed my mind.
Plus they were very reasonable today!
... It was irresistible.
I bought it.
Tonight me and my boyfriend enjoyed ice cream..

Japanese hot pot party

We had a girls meeting yesterday at a fancy tea room, they have attractive sweets.It was hard to choose my treat from them..
I forgot my camera so unfortunately here's no photos.You can see them a review by someone.

After the tea, I went to a home whose one of the friends in the meeting and had a hot pot.
My friend Mami and her husband Francois are very neat couple.
They love music, traveling, foods, movies.
I want to call them "intelligent-travelers"
He grows veggies at their back yard.He knows about veggies and plants very well.Also their veggies are organic, always taste so good.
Mami is always making good Japanese style foods - it remind me my home.
Anyways we had a good time with good food, music.
"sweetcream" featured my products on her blog - thank you very much!

new series

I was making items for new series in these days.
This is multi seasonal version of memory lane.

I was very consider about using materials for the design -
wool series have thick and fine texture, so I wanted to cotton series with similer texture as wool ones.
This series are made by super fine cotton.
Cotton yarns have too light texture compare to wool yarns - even I was using super fine grade cotton.
I was thinking, last I reached out these materials.
Using fine materials in luxury - fresh texture, but still remind the class.

Also I am building kids gift etsystore. It is still in the middle of building, comming soon.
Items in the store are dreamy, precious gifts for kids.

Beautiful store

Chick pea is a children's boutique.
When I first visited the store, I was little excited about their excellent selections.
They have European touch , modern, simple and clean style items.
Even products were only for children, I enjoyed looking at them.
They moved their location and will have a grand opening.
Now some of my products are available at the store.
They are one of a kind colors(you can see one of them on their blog).
Thank you for the featuring.

Surreal dream

I had a dream last night.It was about people in etsy labs.I've never visit there and never met them but still they were in my dream.They were wearing white lab coat and black plastic heart on their left chest.They were singing "singing in the rain".
Maybe I looked at internet too much ?

Night in a city

I often saw movie filming in the city.
The street looks different by color of the lights.

This one is not a movie filming, I took this photo in the other night, on the other street.
Vancouver has various kind of multicultural streets.
