Heart Gift Box Workshop by RIBBONESIA

We had a chance to join the workshop of RIBBONESIA, to make heart shaped ribbon decorated box for Valentine’s Day.

It was really fun time to know how to make a beautiful RIBBONESIA heart!

The box must suit for precious ones… I’m still not sure what is the best thing to put in the box!

Exhibitions at CEDOKzakkastore

Last year’s end, my friend took me to CEDOK zakka store to see the designers whom holding some exhibitions in the shop. The shop was slightly hard to find the door, it is old and not decorated much… but it was a entrance to the cute wonderland.

Tamao is a designer of lovely embroidered accessories, and AYAME making beautiful woven pattern socks and sock monkeys! Also her welcoming finger foods were very good.

I met SEKIYUMI there and she has her atelier in the same building. The atelier is small and cute! You can get her products at there. If you hang around Asakusa on Friday or Saturday, I recommend to making an appointment to visit her place.

Q-pot. petit ghost’s sweet nibbles necklace

q_pot_1_3

I haven’t planned wearing something costume-like fashion for Halloween this year, but I changed my mind when I found cutest jewelry – Q-pot. petit ghost’s sweet nibbles necklace.

The necklace was pre-sale only at Takashimaya.

Petit ghost floating in the grayish resin with sweet nibbles. I love the lollie pop secretly changes its front and back colors.

Medetaiyaki

I got Medetaiyaki and Medetaiyaki Tenugui (traditional cotton towel) after waiting in line in Kabukiza.

medetai_3

Medetai means like happy, joy or congrats, and you know taiyaki is sea bream shaped Japanese sweets. Medetai+taiyaki=Medetaiyaki sounds happy for Japanese. And more, sweet bean-paste with red (pink) and white mochi dumpling in the tummy of it! Red and white are also happy colour for us. The shop is only for Kabukiza, of course it is very popular and good.

Recently we rarely see slippers for business use which were used in schools and hospitals before.
“Pantoufle” is a slipper which is the re-designed of the one used for business.

It was reborn as a unique and cute slipper, thanks to the collaboration with an illustrator.

How could I resist this cutest lollipop?
The star candy in the charm is edible but we can’t eat it forever, it was “frozen” in the in the clear resin.

Lollipop stick and Little Twin Stars carving makes it more cute! I’ll go out with this every day.
