I love exploring when I arrive in new places and I have found myself a fantastic Japanese shop that imports lots of interesting food and nik-nak stuff. I don't frequent it that often but when I do go I come home with so many packets of things that I don't have any idea about. A lucky dip of sorts. Most of the time they are delicious and I can't even give you any idea of what anything is called( except the wasabi peas)as it is solely in Japanese.
She also stocks a little bit of Hello Kitty stuff which my kids adore. I even asked if she could get the fabulous craft books that I see on everyone elses blogs but alas no.
Today I did splurge and bye myself a new teapot and matching cups. Like I haven't had enough presents in the past two weeks! But this is for health purposes. It's to have my healthy green tea in. I did already have one but the spout leaked everywhere when you poured the tea and when I looked at this one it reminded me of a little elephant. Look at that spout! I did also like it's decoration and how the cups did blend in with it. Anyway enough of my yabbering. I am going off to christen it.
And won't that make everybody very HAPPY!!!!
