Have long had a love affair with things Japanese - and Japan. On the way to buying some serious tools for a friend I called into a Japanese import warehouse, and restricted myself to these. All about 12cm in diameter and I've no idea what they'll be used for! A close look at the green bowl will reveal reflections of small plants.
Kimono House is holding a fund-raising kimono exhibition and sale this coming week. The earthquake and tsunami in March seem such a long time ago, but there are still so many Japanese residents needing help and support. The shop sells the most gorgeous fabrics, kimonos and craft items - if you go this week then it will be a win-win - for you and the fund-raisers!
