MY CLOSET

I know I promised pictures of my closet a long time ago.  Well, here it is.  (doors have been removed-now I can actually move in that space!)

A DAY IN THE WORKSHOP

Today Karen and I spent all day putting the finishing touches on the first batch of beetle belts.  You all know how I love to recycle t-shirts, so it seemed fitting to make their dust bags out of old laundered t-shirts.   Karen and I were pleased with how they turned out.   Cutting the [...]

EXPLORING THE GINZA

Yesterday we explored the Ginza district.  Many of Jane's readers had recommended a toy store there.  I had not been to the Ginza in more than 25 years–Wow, how it has changed.  Yesterday, the main street was closed to traffic, making it a very serene experience–not at all like the Ginza I remember back in [...]
