C'est par ici mes chouchous




The new blog is up and going! Right now it still feels like living in a brand new house without furniture, but… baby steps, right? See you there my dear genki people!

My head exploded (in a good way)





This is what happens when you visit the Tokyo City Flea Market in Oi Keibajo. You go totally nuts. 
I was hunting for cheap vintage jewelry to tear apart for a new project of mine, and man oh man, do they have what I was looking for. Some treasures there and I didn't spend more than 3000 yen (25$).







Beautiful gemstones, pearls, chain maille, and a lot of bling. All of this is going to be dismantled and.. well, you'll see.







Love those golden squares!








That flea market is held every Saturday and Sunday of the year. Oh dear. I'm gone…

Bonsai on the Balcony and Man in Fog





I got such a sweet postcard in the mail the other day from David Stafford. Bonsai on Balcony refers to this particular balcony of course :-)) Spot on, David, it looks exactly like you imagined it.








The other side of the card is a story of Monkey Ladies and Kale Rooting Hormone. Kale rooting hormone which, as everyone knows, is an important component of radioactive pasta.
Oh yes, there was a day when I was a Sweet Pea. Then a Sweat Pee. And then just a P. I don't know how David knows all those things but this card got me all wiggy :-)) It must be time for my protein pills...
