a whole new world of inspiration opened up to me today.



i went looking for around fog linen at a japanese bookstore called kinokuniya. i didn't find it, but i did find a whole new world of inspiration for both decorating my home and taking photos. so, so good.
i came home with (of all things) a craft book on basketweaving. i fell in love with it in the store and couldn't walk away from it.
now i want the fog linen book more than ever. but could someone explain to i really order it in yen and have it shipped from japan?

ok. that's my question for tonight. thanks for reading.
ps:: that's my new teatowel from elisabeth bentz there, under the tulips. she's having a baby, and a sale in her shop. but not in that order. there's not much left, but what is, is really lovely.

i soooo want to weave baskets. just yesterday we were driving to a friend's house out in the country and i passed some tall, dry grasses and i wondered if i could cut them and weave a basket.

i can't even imagine a trip to that shop. i'd never want to leave either.

Oh what a wonderful store? Is it in NYC? I always want to stop at the one in Rockerfeller Center, but I have the boys with me. Love the linen.

hi tara.
i just ordered from japan. it was really super simple and not expensive. paypal does the conversion for you.

that basket book looks amazing!

(and you should definitely order around fog linen. i adore it.)
