I met adorable dolls at Hankyu department store in Yurakucho.
The dolls are made in London.
Each one is hand-made and individual.
Also, they all have their own stories to tell you.
Koala: I used to be a serious gambler.
Cat: I do enjoy singing sea shanries.
Rabbit?: I love to smell fresh coffee.
It was extremely difficult to choose someone from a bunch of cuties.
I made a tough choice for 3 adorable dolls that I chose.

Latest mt pop-up shop is at mAAch ecute, 4 minutes walk from Akihabara Station.
The shop was renovated old abandoned viaduct. There was a station named Manseibashi.
The old brick place is really unique and beautiful. Some of limited version of mt washi tapes designed from the inspirations of this building.
And around this building, there’s many sightseeing places. I got a mt tape of well-known things around Kanda, Ochanomizu or Akihabara. Especially I love how they designs Akihabara old-style electric signboards and Japanese style curry rice.

We always love mt (masking tape brand produced by Kamoi), and this time they are holding a selling event at Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan.
This former-girls’ school building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. All over the small and sunny hall was decorated by mt.
We could get latest and limited design mt and a part of basic ones.
And it’s really fun to decorate a plain shopping bags turn into our original ones!

Home and living shop SCOPE collaborated with Klaus Haapaniemi to make some their original Japan-traditional handicraft products.
I already got mini plates, and next, they made some tenugui towels.
I got red “rabbits” pattern. The beautiful tenugui towel makes me happy, but their naming of these tenugui – “tegunui” (means cute typo or something?) is VERY weird.

Saigendo‘s exhibition “Biosphere of Glass” was held at a gallery in Yokohama.
Almost of all lampwork beads were not for sale this time, so we could enjoy his work without “fighting” with other customers.
He lent us small magnifier to look into lampwork beads – 1 inch biosphere of glass. All of his work always takes my breath away and take me to tiny wonderlands.
