Japanese Craft Books

Aren't these books wonderful. Pompadour 24 on Esty is like your own personal japanese craft shopper. I was hoping to find craft stores in Japan but only found the craft dept on a Japanese department store when I visited. Just as well I would have wanted to bring home everything.

Hida Sashiko

Well now I have a new place to visit next time I make it to Japan. Hida Sashiko company has everything a sashiko junky could ever want. They have sashiko embroidery suplies and classes and of course a shop full of the little purses I am addicted to.Their website has a little bit of english. But who needs to read japanese when you just want to look at the pictures.

Mae wall Stickers

These wall stickers from Mae look like so much fun. I would love the paper dolls if I was a little girl. They are made of fabric and they say thay are restickable.

Had a few reminders this week of how much I miss Polaroids. first was a new Urban Outfitters catalog that had a Polaroid 779 camera and film set for sale but I think it was just a tease. I found information about it on Dazed Digital. They say it was a limited edition of 700 and I guess they are sold out because they aren't on their web site. They did have a nice looking book about polaroids as a conciliation. And today Sfgirlbybay posted about 'roid week on flickr you should check out her favorites. Mine is of course the first one with the yellow house and the cat. So in my nostalgic mood I finally scanned some of my old polaroids from my grad school days. I had this thing where I would cut off the edges and peal apart the film. Not a good idea! They still reek of chemicals.

SusyJack Wall Calender

I have been talking myself into getting this calender from SusyJack for a while now. I like the idea of displaying the whole year on the wall. Not only attractive but useful. If I can see the whole year at a glance maybe events wouldn't always be sneaking up on me.
