Thanks for the look into Cotton Paint, I've always wondered what kinds of things they have. And the answer is "cute"! Of course, what was I expecting?


Oh my goodness...everything is so pretty!! I'm really enjoying reading your blog :) My grandparents all live in the west country...and they're usually complaining about the weather ;) However I'm in South West Ireland so I can't really talk! Lizzy


Thankyou for posting info and images from these books. They have opened my eyes and provided so much inspiration ( as have you!). Cheers.


I've been wondering about the contents of that magazine as I've never been able to find one in Japan. Thanks for giving us a peek!
Love the windy bag.

Passions & Distractions

That washing line is adorable! I also love the dog and the cat. And the elephant. And all of it, actually! So cute!


It's all adorable, but those house shoes and the little purses are the sweetest!


oh so cute, the bird is almost like mine wow !!! I'm starting to have the "japanese creative way of thinking " :) :) but love the detail of the washing line :)


I do always enjoy when you share your latest finds, etc. with us - such a source of inspiration, or at the very least just something fun to think on and drool over whilst doing all the boring homefront stuff (laundry, shopping, etc.)

That kitty is going to have me smiling all day!


What cute inspiration..I wish I could make all of it. Can you beleive I don't own one single Japanese craft book!?


what a great magazine...
i'm so envious
but happy that you posted pictures
to share all the same
those shoes are to-die-for-cute


thanks for all this inspiration! i just got some new ideas for cards i´m making for swaps. looooove the clothes line.


The purse with the felt flowers appliqued is my favorite. I just love it! Thanks for posting these great ideas. If I could swap you some of this Arizona sun for your cloudy, rainy Devon days, I would! I'll send you cheery thoughts regardless.


Okay, I am covinced!! I am going to order some of the books today!:)


Thanks for the peek inside that book! :) I am in love with the crochet mobile! :)

I know, I think our sun has went on strike and rain clouds have moved in.
I love bunnies. And I finally got my very first japanese craft book!!! Didn't know what I was missing.
