Last night while the children were sleeping I did some more unpacking. I ran across a few of our Japanese souvenirs, and I started to feel terribly homesick. Crazy, right? It’s Japan. I was supposed to be homesick for America while I was gone! And I was – but really the thing that I missed most was my family. Now, here I am back in America, far away from my family and Japan. Sigh. Well, we’ve been able to keep a little bit of Japan around us in our home, and you can too through the magic of Etsy!
Did you know that Etsy has a section for selling vintage things as well as handmade? I wasn’t aware of that, but just look at that lovely Kokeshi doll!

I’m totally stealing that yen bracelet idea. I have a bag full of those one yen coins and they’re light as a feather – it couldn’t be too much trouble to drill through them and I already have the supplies to turn them into jewelry. Also, that ramen ring looks delicious.
