Sandwiches, Hello!

I'm slowly getting settled in my mini-me Tokyo apartment! It's so lovely and sunny and I just love hanging out here. But I won't be completely satisfied until my super cute housewarming present arrives! I've been in love with these Confetti System Tassle Garlands since I can remember and after seeing them again recently at Third Drawer Down's Sydney Pop Up Shop (which also stocked my Tokyo Guides) I decided it would be a nice little Tokyo housewarming treat! I have ordered the multi colour one!

Aren't they gorgeous? It's like having your own Tanabata installation all year round!

  21. Mette oh no where as near as lovely as yours!

    Hi David, I'm happy you can re-discover your Japan joy through Hello Sandwich. I like the Toyoko-sen.

    Hiki-chan! ha ha I love how kakuyasu delivers a new case and takes away the empty bottles at the same time! now that's convenience!

    The Notebook Doodles, thanks so much! I love colour!

    Miz Murasaki, ha ha I think it's just because I only just moved here and haven't had a chance to accumulate junk yet!

    Elisabeth lovely! ooooo that is such a nice compliment especially coming from you (the master of amazing homes and styling!)

    Hello FortyFour, your shop is so cute too! mt tape is the best isn't it!

    Dawn Tan! ha ha you are super cute x 100000000!

    Yuming! Hello little Russia Girl! I bet your home is huge and super kawaii!

    hello Sarah - ha ha I WISH! You are too sweet!

    Melanie lovely, oooo you should get one! They are so pretty and quite big in real life if you haven't already seen them!

    Trix, thank you! I've got a bit of a dirty little habit of collecting little Japanese small dishes on my travels. It's fun to see them all set up on the table - so colourful! But then a nightmare to wash up!

    Hello Lavender Playground! Thank you! ahhhh yes it's a real skill isn't it! I don't have that much stuff yet but down the track - watch out!

    Buwuzhengye, they are pretty cute chairs aren't they! I love the lime ones!

    Oly! ha ha your comment made me smile! Ooo I am sure you can find in Taiwan no? I went to Taiwan last year and it was pretty cool! Happy Happy Summer to you too! I can't wait till it cools down a little. But I am told typhoon season follows! eeeep!

    Hello Zita! thank you for your lovely comment!

    Hi Barbara - thank you sweet one!

    Hello Kate - nawwww it's too nice of you to say so! I can't wait for the confetti system garland!

    Thank you so much Juznie, that cushion was a special present from a clever Australian designer called Beci Orphin! You can look online here: http://www.beciorpin.com/

    Hi Penelope! ha ha you must have the fastest eyes because I couldn't even see myself it was WAYYYYYy too quick! Nice spotting though! My colour should come out online soon so I will let you know! hopefully you will be able to see slightly more than 1 millisecond of me then! haha!

    Hi Maria, I am really looking forward to it's arrival! Deciding where I hang it will be the hard thing!

    Thank you everyone for your cutest comments! I was a bit shy to put up these pictures because it's so so small but your lovely comments made my day!

    Love Love

  50. Ebony, MERCI BEAUCOUP for this post*
    First, it's beautiful.
    Second, i'm moving house in a few days,
    and i'm bringing my broken (destroyed or smashed would be more accurate) heart with me,
    so having a look at your joyful new flat inspires me a lot.
    I'm seeing things i love in your house, things that make me think this could be some of my friends'flat (or mine), and it reminds me that building your own little world again can be enlightening, fulfilling, and bring light and joy to my heart... Thank you***
