hydrangeas from backyard

I love hydrangea.
It's said that hydrangea is originally from Japan. We call them "ajisai" in Japanese. Lovery sounds, doesn't it?

After so many years, I finally started facebook. Ha! If you're around, look for me and say "hi". Looking forward to seeing you there!

Do you know Origami? It's a Japanese paper craft. Japanese learn how to enjoy one piece of paper in childhood time.

The first photo is made by a young Japanese girl at my shop. She's now into Origami so much and made this panda bear for my daughter. So adorable!!

The second photos is turtle family made with just one piece of origami paper.

This is made by another customer at my shop. She's a Origami professor. Amazing, isn't it?

And these cute tulips are made by my six-year-old daughter. Sweet, eh?

Hydrangea Season

June has started. It means almost half of this year has gone! Oh, no!!!!!

We are now in the middle of the rainy season here in Japan. It's called "tsuyu season". I don't like rain, but I love hydrangea which symbolize this wet season.

my favorite shoes

I bought this in Singapore in March, and now I wear it almost everyday. This is light and very active. Love it!
