Angelic Pretty Paris Tea Party – 2012

Published Monday, 13 May 2013 by sydneysunnyray

The Vedome Column at Place Vendome

After the Lolita Convention I was whipped away on the subway to the magical land of Angelic Pretty. Angelic Pretty’s tea party was hold at the Ritz Hotel.  The Ritz sits at Place Vendome, which is home to famous expensive stores. The Ritz is not for the faint hearted. This is a 5 star hotel, famous, and Princess Diana fled to her death from here.

Hotel Ritz Paris

I was so excited to place my little pink feet inside such a famous and exclusive hotel. The Ritz is under construction at the moment till summer 2014.

The Tea Room

Lolitas in poofy petticoats were directed into a stunning room. The room glowed with chandeliers, the walls covered with romantic paintings, the carpet and ceiling full of gold swirls, and the full length windows open to a wonderful garden. Sadly, I do not remember the name of this room.

Tea, please

‘R’ for chocolate

Soon the room filled up with girls. everyone was given a number for a best dress contest. We were told to talk, take picture, and to have drinks or chocolate. Every girl was like a princess.
I felt a bit out-of-place. My style is not the over-the-top-sweet lolita style that Angelic Pretty is known for. To tell you the truth, I felt a lot out-of-place. I was very emotional this day because it was the end of my journey in France. I felt overwhelmed. I enjoy more looking back at the tea party, then when I was there. I felt horribly sad at the time, but happy!

Anyways back to the tea party!

Maki and Asuka

The hosts, Maki and Asuka, entered in all their glory! I was breathless by them. They were perfect little dolls in the newest Angelic Pretty collection. Their outfits were classical but pastel.  Their makeup was flawless too. I tried to take close up pictures of their makeup.

Me with Asuka and Maki

Not only were they pretty, they were nice. They went to every girl and talked with them, as best as they could. They also stopped for pictures when ever asked. I felt bad that they could not relax!

And Picture of Maki, me, and Asuka when I left.

I sat away to drink some tea. I watched others take pictures. I became strangely shy and nervous. I asked no one for pictures and no one asked for mine. Then Asuka came to me. She said that she like my skirt. I was flabbergasted! My skirt was very old school. (I found it cheap second-hand in France. My favorite Angelic Pretty skirt was at home in the USA! ) Asuka pointed at it and said it was old and rare. Then she said that she had the same skirt.
At once a “cheap” Angelic Pretty skirt became gold.
Also, she was happy to see my pink “BearFace” pouch!

Chocolate Rosette

As for the new collection, Angelic Pretty displayed the new Chocolate Rosette. The designers described the new collection as a bit different and English inspired.

Fruit Cake

Fruit Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Birthday Cake

I found the new collection beautiful and yummy.
There was plenty of chocolate and sweets for all to eat! I will not try to explain the taste of the wonderful cakes. The pictures of food porn can honor you with delight!

Happy Birthday!

At one point, the host called out names. I was one of the few names. We all stood in a line in the front. Then a cake that was on fire came in the room, and it was for our birthdays! My birthday was about 2 weeks before the tea party, so I was completely surprised!  I was given a little gift -a pony cell phone charm. I adore it.

Winner for Best Dressed

Also, I want to present the winner of the contest- “Marijke Wilms”. She has always been nice to me! She is also starting a wonderful store- Rose Trianon.

I had a lot of fun. Many dreams came true that day!

Lolita Convention 3 -2012

Published Thursday, 3 January 2013 by sydneysunnyray

Lolita Convention

Another event that happens in the summer is the Lolita Convention. It is around the time of the brand tea parties and Japan Expo, so lolitas from other areas can stay one more day in Paris with their friends. The convention was opened Sunday in the afternoon and all day Monday; the tickets were only 6euros. The event was easy enough to find – follow the lolitas and behind a hospital.

Lolitas everywhere.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the Lolita Convention. Everyone was in their element- it wasn’t an Anime Convention nor a meetup in a public place. Everyone was dressed and talking. There were wonderful shops set up and a secondhand booth (to buy/sell). Sadly, I could not buy too much. I had two overstuffed suitcases  in my hotel that need to get on a plane with me. However, I did buy things. I bought a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Paris tote bag and a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright plastic barrette.

I use this for classes all the time!

Also, I bought a book. Which brings me to my favorite part about the convention! At the convention two artists were present to sign their books. I was so terribly excited. I love meeting artist and authors because I feel like I have a deeper understanding of their work. The two artists present: Francois Amoretti and Lostfish

Francois Amoretti signing my copy of Gothic Lolita: Princesses d’Aujourd’hui.

Francois Amoretti is famous in the French lolita community for illustrating Gothic Lolita: Princesses d’Aujourd’hui, Le Petit Chaperon Rouge, and more. His most recent work is Burlesque Girrrl. Once I fingered through a friend’s copy of  Gothic Lolita: Princesses d’Aujourd’hui, I knew I had to buy it! I searched forever and bought it at a good price on eBay France. Once I got the book, I learned he would be at this convention;  I was very excited. So, I spent the time leading up to the convention reading the book and enjoying its presents in my dorm room.  Gothic Lolita: Princesses d’Aujourd’hui is rich in detail and depth, and the art is equal to it. What I love about Francois Amoretti’s work is his attention to detail. Through his work, I understood, he completely understood Lolita fashion! And I learned, he actually is interested in the fashion!
In person, he was very nice to talk to (he spoke English well). Also, he has a fun personal style of thick framed glasses and button up shirts. I think it is adorable!

Lostfish with my copy of Alice A Travers Le Miroir

Lostfish is an enchanting artist, I’ve seen floating around the web. I never knew she was France! Her art work is clearing inspired by dolls. The use of doll like features, color, detail, and simple composition forms her signature enchanting, yet haunting, art. I didn’t own her illustrated book; so, I bought it. The book is Alice A Travers Le Miroir (a full French translation of Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll). The book is large – as big as a “bande dessinee” or French comic book, and the paper and print is of high quality. Sadly, the book was expensive at the convention and fewer people came to her table, but I do not regret it!

Lostfish’s display

I want to thank the artist for taking their time to sign and to draw detail pictures in my books! I didn’t know that the artist would draw a large picture on the cover page! It was a great, wonderful surprise!  Francois Amoretti drew a bow on the main lolita girl simular to mine that day, and Lostfish drew Alice and her kitten for me!

The drawings! Top: Francois Amoretti’s Gothic Lolita // Bottom: Lostfish’s Alice A Travers Le Miroir

I thought I would show some pictures of me and my friends. I look bad this day, but it was because of stress and being tired. I was very tired and stressed. Not to mention, I was very emotional because it was my last day.

Mes amies sont trop belles! // My girlfriends are so beautiful!

I left the convention early because I had another tea party to go to! Sadly, I missed the fashion show!

I had to leave early and say my “a bientots” to Karima! This is our last hug!

Till next time, my dear!

PS: Samantha FancyMelody‘s outfit was my favorite! She wore my new “dream dress” – Alice and the Pirates Lilietta.

“This is ridiculous.” “This, Madame, is Versailles.”

Published Friday, 10 August 2012 by Sydney Sunny

My last visit for a while to Versailles was shared by my good friends. A visit to Versailles shows a few new things every time. It is as though Versailles has secrets. The place is constantly being filled with different information, the massive gardens are ever changing with the seasons, across the way the Petit Trianon hides behind the garden side, and more fields and garden hides behind her. Easily one could spend a life time at Versailles.

Dark clouds loomed over Varsailles but the day grew brighter the longer we stayed.

Marine and I arrived by the wonderful RER, and Karima, by bus. We where not the early birds at the palace. The line was so terribly long at the doors to the palace. So, we decided to walk around in the gardens first and have a picnic by the lake. The garden’s main avenue is often full of people, but the said  paths are wonderful to wonder along. A new fountain or statue will always appear.

It was really, really windy.

The swirls are full of flowers.

There where modern sculptures in the garden around the palace. This one was my favorite because of the swirls which mimicked the garden’s swirls.

Credit to Marine: We stood behind a small lesser known fountain, but beautiful non-the-less!

After walking around in the garden, we headed to the lake. Karima says she often comes to the Versailles gardens to have a picnic with her friends when she is in school. Part of the green way was blocked because of a miniature firing canon boat on the lake. However, we found a nice area right beside the lake. We ate our packed lunches, talked about everything, watched the swans, and laughed about nonsense.

Credit to Karima: Our little picnic blanket was wonderful to sit for our lunch time!

I thought my friends looked so beautiful this day. Their outfit were not fancy or over the top. They were effortless. They were simply enjoying their favorite clothing during the weekend on a day out with friends.

I stole a picture of Marine when she smiled at me!

I also stole a picture of Karima smiling!

After our tummies were full, we wondered back to the palace.
I’ll give you a tip: If you are 26 and under with a visa for Europe or live in Europe, you can just stand in line at the gate. You do not need to buy/ receive a ticket. This is important because it is a long line for tickets and an other long line to enter in the gates pass security. To the buy tickets go to the left. There is a boutique too. Also, the rooms are very interesting. I found an unfinished room that reminds me of the horror that happen to the royal family.

“I’m just saying good-bye.”

The palace had a wonderful display of the history of Versailles. I wish there was a book I could have bought to read later with this exposition. There were old paintings of Versailles palace that I imagine the rich looked at to design there own chateaus. There were nice miniature displays of the different periods of Versailles. My favorite was a display of the Opera and I think, also, Marie Antoinette bedroom.

And of course, the wonderful palace is always there. I love the beginning with the long stone halls before the rich rooms. The halls are lined with kings or important men. The black and white floor is playful to the eye. And, I love large windows that cast a magical light.

Karima posing front of the large windows.

Once I enter the luxurious rooms, I forget about every thing. I am overwhelmed by the details of the walls, ceiling, furniture, paintings, frames, and colors. I love to look up at the ceilings at Greek myths and almost fall into the sky of blue and gold. The wallpaper shines with all the crystals.

Looking up to find the fleur de lys, paintings of war, justice, and hope.

Details of the luxuriousness of a Versailles room. Luxuriousness is all in the details.

I love chandeliers, and Versailles is a dreamland of chandeliers.

My favorite room is Marie Antoinette’s bedroom. It is stunning!

The mirrors in Marie Antoinette’s room has an infinity of chandeliers!

Here is another tip:
Don’t be the semi-early-bird. You need to arrive before it opens to be there with the least amount of people! However if you are running around or like to sleep in the morning, try arriving 2-3 hours before it closes or after lunch (after 14h/2pm). The line is not as long, but there will still be people but not as pressing!

” There are a lot of people at Versailles today. ” (Hall of Mirrors)

Versailles is not just a palace, but a museum. And, they don’t just have historical expositions. There is sometimes modern art incorporated in the scenes of the palace.
Personally, I could have the palace with no modern art in it ever! In it’s pure form. But, I understand the need to big the local French to the wonderful palace that is in their back yard more often.
When I went, the art was made by Jaona Vasconcelos. Her art was bold and interestingly crafted. The ideas were fresh and unseen by me.
Her statement:
“My work has developed around the idea that the world is an opera, and Versailles embodies the operatic and aesthetic ideal that inspires me.”
“Interpreting the dense mythology of Versailles, transporting it into the contemporary world, and evoking the presence of the important female figures that have lived here, while drawing on my identity and my experience as a Portuguese woman born in France, will certainly be the most fascinating challenge of my career.”  – from the Versailles Site

A pair of high heels made of cooking pots in the Hall of Mirrors.

A strange, turning sculpture made of plastic spoons contrast the elegant painted ceiling.

This sculpure is the same as the black. The two twins were at the ends of the Hall of Mirrors.

My favorite was marble(?)lions covered with lace. It is very strong  but “romantique” – like all women.

A small detail in Versailles is the writing on the mirrors. Some names dated 100 years ago! It is a horrible detail that hope doesn’t happen now, but somehow it is romantic. I wonder if these people are still alive or a relative has come to Versailles to see their Grand- something-or-another’s name.

The writing on the mirrors.

Afterwards we took pictures outside in the front. I love the front’s square with the black and white floor. It is a perfect place to take picture and would have been a stunning welcome to Versailles in the age of the Kings and Queens.
We had a wonderful, wonderful day together!!!

Marine, Karima, and I are in the front!

The golden gates are something to celebrate!

Finally, I want to talk about Lolitas and the entry into Versailles.
I have heard from word that sometimes lolitas not allowed into Versailles, and even read on Princess Sui‘s blog about it!
I have gone to Versailles 3 times in the past 6 months! I do not understand how I have slipped the fashion police!
The first time I had a pink blouse and pink jumpskirt! We were dressed up. And taking picture, but it was during low season.
The second time my friend and I twined in a one piece dress! We only went to the gardens but the workers loved our outfits! Also, Sui wasn’t allowed in the gardens in her lolita outfit!
And, I got by the third time in my most casual outfit!

Tips to get into Versailles*:
Don’t wear a huge bow –wear simple hair bows or put them on later
Don’t wear a big wig –  go natural or if you must wear a natural looking wig
Don’t wear sweet prints –wear a darker print or classical print
Don’t go crazy with makeup- wear natural makeup! *you are beautiful*
Don’t look like you are going to have a photo shoot – place cameras in purse
(they don’t want you clogging the halls/ rooms. And you need to pay for that, silly.)
Don’t act silly – be normal.
If you are nervous, take extra clothing. Better to see Versailles, if it is your only chance, then to have to skip it!
You will not be able to look like Marie Antoinette! It is the same idea with Disney and how you cannot look like a princess or Disney* character.
*Also, this works for Disney.

My casual lolita is something I wear daily when I go out. This is  my most casual outfit at Versailles!

My outfit:
T-shirt, Jacket, Skirt, Socks, Key Necklace, Folding Umbrella: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Purse: Juicy Couture
Bear Face Pouch: Angelic Pretty
Pink Flower Clips: H&M
Mary Jane Shoes: Clarks (*RIP*)

Marine:
Print Skirt, Blouse, Socks: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Heart Purse: Angelic Pretty

Karima:
Jumpskirt, Hair bow: Alice and the Pirates
Tote Bag: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright

So, see, you can get in Versailles in Lolita!

Thank you friends, for a wonderful day!

My next posts will very exciting! Till then

Visit Totoro’s Adventures! He has many tales of Versailles and MORE!

Anniversaire des Associations Rouge Dentelle Rose Ruban et Chemin De Briques Roses

Published Wednesday, 20 June 2012 by Sydney Sunny

In May Rouge Dentelle Rose Ruban et Chemin De Briques Roses had a anniversary picnic! The picnic also had a raffle. I bought a good amount of ticket because the event was free!

At the beginning of the day, I met a local lolita from around the Amiens area. It was nice to meet someone new, like always.
We took the RER to the park. The park was Parc Montsouris. It is a large park at the very edge of Paris. The park had large, grand trees and areas like a forest! I almost felt at home! There were also tons of open grass area for people to read, eat, play, and tan. If I lived in Paris, I would have to go to parks like this every week! I need a nature getaway because I live near forests at home.

And to make everything better, the weather was warm for May. I was so happy to be warm and sticky, rather then cold and wet. However, this weather moved out afterward, and the result have been colder then I have ever been in June.

A pirate/ steam-punk lolita!

A top hat.

My favorite thing about this meet up was the different styles! There was sweet, gothic, pirate, steam-punk, classical, and sweet punk. There were even men dressed and acting like gentlemen! And everyone was different but the same thread of love for lolita fashion ran in the outfit. My style was just sweet. I wore my favorite skirt and new blouse. I always feel a bit plain but I enjoy everything just the same!

My Outfit::Umbrella, bow, blouse, skirt, bunny-bear bag, socks: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright // Shoes: Secret Shop

Once the blankets were spread out for our skirts, the food was placed in the center. And may I say anything else, the French know how to eat. There was all sorts of food! There was fresh vegetables, sandwiches, and quiches.b Also, my friend Yumi made rice-balls and sushi.
For dessert, there was a French coconut cake (I say French because it is very different in the USA), pink cupcakes, cookies, and tea.
And even later, there was watermelon. All the lolitas were scared to eat it because of their dresses, but not me. I have a deep love for watermelon! I was ecstatic to have a few slices!

Watermelon!

My next big joy was the grass. The grass was so green and young. Most lolitas took off their shoes to sit without fear on the blankets with food; however, I took off my shoes and my socks. I was so happy to feel the grass between my toes, and dirt underneath my foot. It is simply a hard pleasure to find in a city or a city park.

Shoes, sock, bags, and umbrellas piled up as lolitas eat at the picnic.

After everyone ate their full, Marine, Camille, Yumi, and I went on a walk to view the park. After noon time the park had filled up with people who were enjoying the sun and warm weather. Every inch of grass had people sitting, eating, play, or tanning. Everyone seemed happy for the return of warm sunny days!

We came back to the picnic for the start of the raffle ticket drawing! There were many, many prizes! There were Deco-den supplies, books, Baby, the stars Shine Bright items, fan-magazines, jewelry, boxes, and a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright dress!
I bought 10 tickets with the hope of winning something. And I did! I won the Princess Luna trilogy and Misako’s book signed!

I was so sad that Misako was not coming to France this summer because she came last year. But, if you are near LA in the USA, you can meet her! I will have to do with her book and signature!

Am I excited? Credit to friend

My prizes!

Misako’s signature!

All in all, it was a wonderful relaxing picnic with friends and new friends too! The French lolita know how to dress and cook! Thank you!

Me and Yumi by the roses! Credit to Marine

Bye for now!

Disneyland Paris

Published Monday, 11 June 2012 by Sydney Sunny

I don’t know why it is taking me to long to write about my adventures. I think, it is because I have only about one month left in France before I return to the USA. I hate being reminded on all the work I must do to return, but there are so many more adventures. This adventure is a bit sad because it was the last grand adventure I had with Stephanie. She returned home at the end of May.

After the morning and a bit of the afternoon in Versailles, Stephanie and I headed back to Paris to pick up our good friend, Yumi! Once we met up we took the next RER to Disneyland Paris. It took a while to get to Disneyland, but we finally got there. The cloudy and rainy morning has gave way to a wonderful sunny Sunday afternoon. Disneyland was quite empty.
I followed Stephanie around because she had been to Disney a few times, had a pass, and is just crazy from Disney! She knew the park like the back of her hand!

We tackled the rides without difficult waits and lines!
The rides we took: Phantom Manor, Big Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups, and Casey Jr.- le Petit Train du Cirque.

Here are a few of my favorite rides:

The Phantom Manor was quite fun! We got into a little separate seated ride that took us around a creepy house. The effects were very impressive! I could not figure out how they did everything! The story was very sad and chilling too. A young kid would only see the haunted house but there is a story! It is like the Corpse Bride’s personal story of a sad bride.

Big Thunder Mountain was perhaps the best ride! There was a long line for this ride because it is the most popular ride. Stephanie said it was a must. We all were screaming and laughing as the train took us through the hills and valley of the west…very fast!

Pirates of the Caribbean was not what most people expected. The ride was older with less impressive effect, and the theme was based on the old Pirates of the Caribbean. In other word, there was no Captain Jack Sparrow! I didn’t care. The ride it self was fun! the boat went down waterfall and showed scenery of burning cities! The ride is once of my favorites! I wanted to go again right when I got out!

At the end of our day, I saw Le Carrousel de Lancelot. I begged to get on! We all hopped on a golden horse and went around in a whirl of lights. I really liked this carousel because it was very classical. Now-a-days carousel can be seen with modern characters and strange flashing lights. Classic fun!

Mad Hatter’s Tea Cups were a must stop! The tea cups move in such a crazy way! Having a group of friends to twirl the tea cup makes a great time of laughter! Oh how we giggles and laughed together on this twirling ride!

We also explored : La Cabane des Robinson, Le Passage Enchante d’Aladdin, Alice’s Curious Labyrinth, and Sleeping Beauty Castle.

 


My favorite was Alice’s Curious Labyrinth! The maze was actually pretty hard. I was always taking the wrong turn and even got lost! Characters from Wonderland popped up here and there as we found our way. we look perfect all dressed in lolita. Alice is an inspiration to the lolita fashion.

Also, my favorite was Sleeping Beauty’s castle. The stain glass windows and tapestries told the story of Sleeping Beauty. I was breathless viewing the detailed windows and tapestries!

 

A lot of people might be wondering how 3 lolitas got into Disney with out any trouble. First of all, we were not over the top with wigs, bows, and socks. We worn our plain solid dresses with nothing else. As plain as we were in the lolita world, people did notice your style. We were even approached but people who knew the style. But that is the nice balance, the notice. If too many people notice you, Disney will not want you in the parks. The character actors must shine first!

 

After Disney closed we went shopping and ate dinner at 10pm. I bought my first collection of Disney Collector Pins!  Finally, we took the last RER back to Paris and the “sweeper metro” ( last metro) back to Stephanie’s place. We were worn out!

 

 

I have so many adventures to look forward to in my remaining time in France!

Spring in Versailles’ Garden

Published Thursday, 31 May 2012 by Sydney Sunny

I took a long time to start writing this adventure because, not only my heart post, but this was my last adventure with Stephanie, just her and I. Now, I cannot imagine Versailles or Paris with out her. She and I met at the Baby Tea Party, but our friendship sparked quickly. She and I stayed up to 3 am just talking. We never shut up together. I am going to miss her!
Anyway, sorry for the sad start to this adventure! Because, this day had the most adventures!

On a Sunday, Stephanie and I went to Versailles. We thought going on a Sunday would help with the crowds, but it was so very crowded. I was overwhelmed. Only in February, there was a light crowd. We never waited in a line and roamed the palace and garden freely.

We only wanted to go to the gardens, so the line was very small.
In the Garden as we moved away from the palace, the garden became more bearable. Many paths on the side were empty with a few people wander around.

The reason I went back to Versailles is because I am love with the romantic Rococo atmosphere of the palace and the spring time garden. Plus, we wanted to twin in Lolita, which means to wear the same dress on purpose. Another dream come true!  The atmosphere of the palace was not felt at all. Since, it was covered with tourist at the time. But, I loved the bright green, lush grass, full flowers, and spring trees in the garden.
We also viewed the Musical Fountains. We sat there for 3 rounds! We started laughing, and romantically viewing the water dance.  One could believe we were part of Marie Antoinette with our frilly dresses.

 

By the way our dress, We are both wearing Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’s Dessert one piece, my favorite. I have the older version in pink, and she has the newest version in lavender. Girls from China (I think) spotted us and said, “Lolita?” The girls said that they wore lolita dresses too! She took pictures with us and in exchange they took a picture for us.

The morning started to turn to a dark gray noon. The clouds became heavy and the wind cold. I felt a storm. Stephanie took me to her favorite place. It is just to the left of the palace. There is a view of a garden of swirls and  a lake behind it. Stephanie said it was her favorite part.

The rain began to fall. Then we went into one of the many side doors in search of a bathroom. The bathroom we found had one toilet. I am sorry, but every situation I have been in here in France there has been a lack of respect for toilets. It was not fun, but I looked outside and the rain was pouring! I was happy to wait for the rain to stop.
We found this interesting room. The room was covered with wild black and white wallpaper and had a modern chandler.

Soon, we left. But our day was nothing but over!
Next stop DISNEY PARIS!

Deco-den at Baby Paris

Published Saturday, 19 May 2012 by Sydney Sunny

So far this is my 4th lesson from Megu in Decoden. I first made little whip cream rings, but now I am off to what I dream of doing. I want to put gems all over everything! Megu’s last lesson was a free for all. You just brought in something you wanted to deco. I choose my camera’s lens cover to cover with gems!

So, on a Sunday I went to Paris and went to a museum to wait till the fun began! I had tea at Starbucks and waited for my friends. We had a nice time talked before walking to Baby the Stars Shine Bright.

Baby full of petticoats and lolitas

Megu works hard to put together these events for anyone who whats to start in decoden. She sets up tables in the shop and has to clean afterwards. Megu served me first because I just bought the little gems.
It was really hard to move around because of the petticoats and tables! I stood around, took pictures, and talked with others.

Megu serving crafting lolitas

As everyone was busy, i took the time to look around my favorite shop! There are so many wonderful things! I love to place my hands on the dresses and skirts. I like to look at the waves of bows and ribbons. The rainbow of lace and socks forever call my name. It is a wonderland.

Wonderland

I am in love with the Bunny-Bear Bags! I have everyone of them but the huge one! I love him so much! (I found one on eBay but the person has never emailed me back. If someone in France wants to help me contact this seller please help me!)
I looked bad that day because I walked in the rain to get to the train station in the morning.

So enough playing around in the store! I had work to do! And, I worked hard; but, I was the only one not to finish! It was tedious but relaxing. I was able to forget everything and think of my sparkles. I loved it! I stayed behind as the others left to stay with Megu. We talked for a long time before I had to go to the train station.

My supplies and Totoro are waiting!

My unfinished camera lens

Megu invited me to stay with her the next week. I was able to finish my decoden! Plus, she threw a little sushi party! Till the next post!

My finished decoden project! It needs to be cleaned…. I can’t wait to do more!
