Baby Kyoko & Virtual Visit at Bougeoir

More baby kyoko straps and ballet shoes brooches had been deliverd to Bougeoir over the summer and earlier this month.  Baby Kyoko coats come in different colours and textures.  Some have short curls, some are silky, and some even glitter!

夏から今月上旬にかけて、Baby KyokoストラップとバレエシューズブローチをBougeoirさんに納品。Baby Kyokoのコート、色や質感は様々です。ショートカールしているもの、シルキーなもの、キラキラしているもの、などなど。

 On and off I have been selling my works in Bougeoir for around two years, but I have never been to the shop.  It’s time to pay a virtual visit!


Here is the welcomg entrance.  Looks like the staff could take naps on the hammock!


Can you spot Kyoko greeting customers inside the shop?


I wonder if they serve hot chocolate to kids while their mothers shop?


What a lovely shop!  There is even an enclosed glass playroom for baby Kyokos to run free, bark loud, and no one get disturbed!

何て素敵なお店!Baby Kyokoが自由に遊べるプレイルームまである!ガラス張りになってるから、吠えても大丈夫!

Thanks to Fukazawa-san, who sent me the photos of Bougeoir.  My curiosity is now appeased!

Marone x Kyoko by E.L.

I have recently delivered some Kyokos and outfits to Marone(CLICK!).  Something I always do before I dispatch my works is to lay and arrange each article of clothings and accessories on my table.  It is a way to reward myself after days of hard work.   Somehow I find it hard to part with my works even though I know I could always make them again.

Ballet Practice / バレエ特訓

I love putting on my tutu when I practice ballet at home.  Wearing it makes me feel like a professional ballerina.


It is important to warm up by doing some gentle stretching and jumping.


For the past few months I have been practicing to stand tiptoe on one foot for up to five seconds without falling.  Let me show you how it’s done!


Take a deep breathe and kick!


Hold and count one, two, three, four, five!


  You see!  Practice makes perfect!

分かった? 何事も練習すれば完璧になるの!

Okinawa Morning Glory / 沖縄アサガオ

This is my new best friend, the Okinawa morning glory.


As the name indicates they only bloom in the morning and start to wilt by early afternoon.


This perennial climber has heart-shaped leaves and dreamy blue flowers, and would bloom throughout summer.


Doesn’t it look like the sun shining in the blue sky?


 Okinawa morning glory is a popular summer plant to grow in front of windows in Japan.  For it climbs and spread to form a “green curtain”, providing shade from the scorching sun, and decrease room temperature from sunlight.


My snail loves it too!  I have to keep a constant watch on it, or it will eat the plant up!
