Walnut cookies with a limited Valentine’s Day box from Seikotei


I got a walnut cookies with a limited Valentine’s Day special box of Ginza Matsuya from Seikotei.




The walnut coolies are standard Seikotei cookies, however, the box is a limited box of Ginza Matusya for the Valentine’s Day from Seikotei.
The adorable angel pig and angel squirrel made me very happy.


Also, I got ‘a Happy pig’ which is an original figure of Ginza Matsuya in 2013.
The fancy pig that is holding a big heart makes me a big smile.

Alice Garden pouches from tsumori chisato SLEEP


I got puffy pouches from tsumori chisato SLEEP.


The fabric pattern is named “Alice Garden”, tsumori’s cute drawing – Alice, mad hatter, queen of hearts, cheshire cat, and more characters are playing in the field.



The large pouch was made for undies, however I’m using this as my iPad mini and gadgets case!

Of course Hello Kitty appeared on McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys again and again.
This time Kitty helps kids enjoy cooking. You know I’m old enough but I got her “heart roller pattern pin”. I’ll try to make cute fondant with this.
