rose quartz sakura ring

I went to Isetan to just have a look of “dress a dress” enamel sakura ring.
But I was completely hooked on rose quartz sakura ring once I tried that! All of the beautiful petals are made of light and clear pink quartz.
I’m waiting for cherry blossom season with this ring.

Hello Sandwich Exhibition

I went to Hello Sandwich Exhibition at gallery commune in Shimokitazawa.
The gallery space was perfectly changed into Hello Sandwich world!
How could we resist to look around the exhibition without smiling?

She always cast a spell on our usual belongings… to turn into charming things!

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.
