Amazing Spiderman Straw Cup

I got this Amazing Spiderman Straw Cup at a movie theater.
I love the Amazing Spiderman Figure on the cover.
Saw “The Amazing SpiderMan”. I really enjoyed terrific performance from Andrew Garfield.
The 3D certainly helped the action elements of the story.
I never liked 3D before, but Webb just did it so flawlessly.

Yasuko Mitsuura Brooch Exhibition



Yasuko Mitsuura is a famous comedienne in Japan, and she’s talented for handicraft too!
Sometimes we could see cute brooch on her blouse when we saw her on TV.
Finally these work gathered for her first handmade brooch book, and the exhibition was held.


The book named “Danshi ga moratte komaru brooch syu” means like “men always embarrassed when I gave my brooches”.
Some comedian guys appears on her book and they acts like her gifts are terrible.



But all of the funny and strange brooches are so cute for girls and women! (And I saw some men were coming there! haha)
