It' so great to see her again in NY.

It's beautiful... I particularly like the last picture... it's a "résumé" or a "concentré" of THE "Natsumi's touch" ;)

I hope you'll can visit France... soon ;)

joanne said...

the crabs are so cute :) and the cookies. they turned out delicious, I gave some to my parents for their trip and the rest went to my friend in addition to her present. we had fun eating them to the champagne while we were celebrating :)

thank you for all your sweet comments, they all make me smile

It is an Alvaar Alto´s design. I saw them in Finland. They are beautiful and quite expensive.
I bought one to my mum, little one, for candel holding...in white...
Love this blue.

yes water lily and lotus for the big one, for me it the most beautiful flower. you touch a spiritual spirit with this flower :)

your drawing is "vu du ciel", "seen from the sky"
like www.home-2009.com/
its changes perception of the object.

The way you took the photo, from above, made that vase turn into ocean. What an inspiration, Natsumi!
