I received the surprise gift from England.
Thank you so much, Pauline! These crochet are beautiful!!
Blue and white are my favorite colors!

We had a snowstorm the other day here in NY and
it is supposed to snow again this afternoon..
I like to have a hot chocolate after a fun day of playing in the snow.

Have a great weekend, everyone! xo


Wating for Spring to come...

We have a winter storm. It's extremely cold today!!
I am supposed to go out to see the live classic music
this evening but I am not sure if I want to go....

What is the weather like in your city?
If you live in a cold climate, please be safe
on the roads and stay warm! xo


Rainy day

It's been raining and cloudy since yesterday.
The sky is gray and it is hard to motivate myself.... I feel a bit weak.
Hope the sun will come up soon.

Do you know about ARTLOG? I came across this site yesterday and it looks like an interesting site where art lovers can find new artworks, galleries and artists.

I am waiting for Spring to come....

Have you ever heard of a rooftop farm?
They grow organic vegetables on warehouse rooftops in NY.
I am interested in visiting there when it gets warmer!



Hope everyone had wonderful holidays!

I invited a couple of friends to my place to celebrate Japanese New Year on New Year's day. I served some sake and traditional Japanese food which I made.
The year of 2011 is the year of the rabbit and I got "a cute Japanese rabbit" as a surprise gift from my friend. It's an adorable.. He bought it at Kiteya which is one of my favorite Japanese gift shops. I had a great first day of 2011 with warm people.

Lovely Jennifer is visiting NY from LA in February. She is a talented textile designer. Please check out her store!
Yes, I can't wait to see her again!
