the other week i ordered these zouri from Japan and i am just so happy and appreciative of the craftsmanship put into hand making these traditional sandals! heres the website where it's from.
and the origami was also a nice surprise i found in another box shipped to me from Japan. i just love the idea of a total stranger in a whole different world, hand crafting something special just for you :-)
thank you for sharing your new years resolutions!! it was very inspiring to read!
...one more thing...
i finally gave in and got myself an iPhone 4... hahah! i really did not want to get one because i don't necessarily think they are the nicest looking phones (i think they look like remote controls for microwaves or something), and being compared to the beautiful Japanese cellphones i always get. but, i must say, as i'm still getting used to it, they are very convenient!
and so i signed up for instagram too! hahah
do you guys have instagram? i would love to see your photos from your side of the world! my user name is: iiimono (yes, 3 i's), what's yours??
