nablolpomo # 4

i did go today to the four dragon store and the stationery mall. i did take my camera, but i took no pictures. never fear though as i must return tomorrow. i bought a christmas tree but - silly me - did not check it before bringing it home and it doesn't fit together. so pictures tomorrow. i bought some decorative plates and a jim shore santa for less than 10 dollars. in front of the stationery mall they had a lot of food vendors. i must try some octopus on a stick!

here is my cloisonne i commissioned from a local artist. i always stop and admire his work. when ordering this piece i failed to notice the child is wearing those pants that are open in the back. i suppose then it is more authentic.

here are the plates i bought today. they are square and quite intricate. the photos don't really do them justice. i quite like them.

A whole mall just for stationary?! Darn and i was totally incapable of finding the notebook i needed today. Wanna swap lives for a day so i can buy a notebook and you can get a tree? LOL :p

Wow, those plates are beautiful! I bet they are even better in real life. :)

Plates: Loving them! Adorei.
Now for the octopus on a stick: NOT loving that. Nao gostei.

On the other hand, kudos to you for being the daring woman that you are.

PS: I'm with Cairo. I'd swap lives for a bit with ya. Not complaining about mine, but you do the whole daring living outside of the US bit . . . something to keep in the journals of life, that's for sure.
