It's been a quick week, but they all seem that way lately, it's so nice that we have no deadlines or commitments keep up with, we'd be floundering. Today, after the kitchen is cleaned, I'm heading upstairs to finish a puzzle off and clean my craft room, that's my contribution to health and safety today.
My theme this week is Japanese in nature. My first photo is a shelf on my desk that I've put a lot of my Japanese treasures on , 2 little scenes our daughter made for me, a Torii, Godzilla postcards, 2 Gudetama--the lazy egg--, and some Japanese mascots.
My second it a small Japanese garden my daughter made for me and a pagoda we bought in Japan to make.
My third has to do with 1,000 origami cranes. It is an ancient Japanese legend that if you make a 1,000 tiny origami cranes and join them by string you will be granted your wish. While on a train in Japan we saw an elderly Japanese man making these tiny cranes, he worked so quickly it was amazing to watch. Mac has done origami and use to show his students how to do it back when he was teaching. So we bought some origami paper for him to make some cranes with. I don't think he'll made a 1,000.
My fourth is a jigsaw puzzle, it will be the next one I do after the birds.
And my fifth is a small notebook, I loved stationary stores and Japan has wonderful ones.
That's my Five, do join the other bloggers at Five on Friday.
