Yoshitomo Nara Sake

Wa~! I found Yoshitomo Nara sake in Shimokitazawa today! The glass bottle turns into a cute little Yoshitomo Nara drinking glass once finished. Adorable no?

Actually, I bought this sake bottle this week too. To be honest, I don't love sake but I desperately needed this pretty bottle for my mini-me vase collection.

In other drink inspired news...Polka dots and multi-coloured type? You got me there.

My lovely friend Elo, after hearing that some of my favourite glasses smashed in the recent quakes, picked up these glasses for me from a local retro homewares shop. They were wrapped in Japanese newspaper and left at my apartment door over the weekend. I just love the pattern - multi-coloured polka dots and triangles. Thanks Elo!

I've also since done some DIY quake-proofing on my glass cupboard with some push pins and gross grain.

    These are amazing! Do you have any idea if and where I can buy these online (the sake-filled ones)? My bf buys beer from overseas so I don't see why I can't buy sake.
