Cute find!

30 Sep

この間の品川のお祭りで
見つけた可愛いものたち。

50年前くらいのものだと言って、
お婆ちゃんが店先で売ってた、
箱入りデッドストックの
革製のコインパース。

IMG_4021.JPGあまりにもデザインが
可愛いくて大量購入しました。

どのデザインもカラーも
レトロでポップで
全部自分で欲しいけど…

ノロノロ準備中の
セレクトショップで
取り扱おうと思ってます。
(ネットのね。)

何年に作られたのかなーって
思って、中の詰め物を広げてみたら、
そこにあったのは
1969年の新聞。

新聞すらも愛おしい♥︎
(求人欄に初任給3万とか
書いてあって、
読んでみると興味深い。)

powdery pink

9 Apr

A cloudy day.

You can barely tell

where the border of

the sky

and the blossoms is.

Tokyo Black (porter)

pretty good beer.

Maybe the thickest beer I’ve had

since I got back from the States.

I love swan boat…

It was a better exercise than I thought, though.

(…but I love it!)

When was the last time

I saw cherry blossoms in Japan?

****************

When the wind blows

and when the petals float in the air,

it makes me want to cry.

I’d forgotten that feeling.

Now, I remember it again.

**********************************

I’m very glad

I went out to witness

the beginning of spring.

I know I still have a lot of work to do…

But a little break is alright, right?

Yes.

a jar full…

7 Feb

I love buttons.

I get so excited when I see

huge tubs filled with vintage buttons.

All the colors and different shapes

inspire me to make something.

They are like candies

that don’t kill your teeth.

So sweet.

Yum yum.

**********************

On Sunday, after having a brunch with

Matthew (yes click!!) at Fada,

I was walking to go to

Mast Brother’s Chocolate

and decided to stop by at Junk on Driggs.

You know, when you pass by at a thrift store

or a vintage store,

and when you feel like something is

calling you,

your instinct is usually right.

You will find something that excites you.

****************

I went inside the store

and stumbled upon pools of buttons.

Yes, butterflies in my stomach.

I think I stayed there for 90 minutes or so,

just searching for pretty buttons.

**********************

I got an eye candy and inspiration,

instead of a candy wrapped in a gold foil.
