This is what happens when I go through my mail and decide what to recycle or not.

Floral Arrangements in Japan...

Rosehips + Aoki(the green stuff)

Hibiscus pod, Lilly, Chrysanthemum

orchids, chysanthemums

My grandmother is a licensed teacher of the Ikenobou style of Ikebana (flower arranging).  These are some of the arrangements I made and she graded as A++ this fall.  I'm sure her grading was not biased... being her cute, sweet granddaughter and all...  ;)

A completed pair!

It may have taken me until the very last day I was in Japan (finishing the thumb on the limousine bus on the way to Narita Airport), but my mittens were completed! And MacAroni got a kabuki tattoo.
