My Nook

I received a NOOKcolor for Christmas with much joy! And have already piled 2 reading lists (primarily geisha material) in my B&N Nook library.

Fictional (there are 2 non-japanese books, disregard those unless you share the same morbid humor as me)

some titles include


To just name a few =)

there is a free geisha book (actually 2 one is in german) and it look sREALLY cool touching in districts away from kyoto. I'm gonna read it, make notes and report it to the IG forums and HERE!

I hope ya'll benefit from this.

Christmas craft time!

I made 2 wreaths this year from left over tree clippings from a Christmas tree tent.

metal ring ~$2.99 rip ties ~ $1.99

Having a REAL wreath in your home = AWESOME!

I was thinking of venturing out and making handmade wreaths to sell at these tents (giving them like a 10% profit from it) How much would one spend on a handmade, real tree wreath? $25 maybe?

It takes an relatively an hour to make one. hmmmm...I'm gonna have to crunch numbers.

Here's a So-So pic of one not decorated.

This one is my Mom's, she loves wreaths!
And I made one for my boyfriend's and his mom's house. They smell wonderful!

It's great if your family only have a plastic tree and want that smell ^^

All decorated!

The purple Kimono came in!!!

This is one different from my others. It has tucks at the shoulders, the arms holes are smaller and the hand holes. Its shorter on my body too. making me think this was meant for a much younger girl then me......BUT I DONT CARE ITS GORGEOUS!

Like I posted earlier, I was gonna team it up with my taisho-esque obi. and in my opinion it works!

I have a pink haneri hiding somewhere that I will add to this.

And there's a slight sexy subtle aspect about this kimono. the 'white' leaves in the wisteria is actually pink only by the red of the lining showing through the transparentness of it. whoever thought of that was a genius!

having a pattern on my deriere seems a little risque

Obi is a bit crumpled, I smoothed it after I took this shot

You can see a smidgen of a tuck on my shoulder

the haori I chose to wear to calm it down

One more shot, with a better view of the tuck
The yellow leaves is actually gold foil, and the obi has golden embroidery on it at the outline of the fern? (i think it's a fern plant)

I just love this!
