... to all my dear readers. Please have a good and pleasant start into 2013, with your family and friends, the year of the snake in Japan/China. Snake is also my Chinese/Japanese zodiac sign.

Of course I made a New year picture for you again, I hope you like it ~

Hello my dear readers,

tachibana (mandarin orange), seigaiha (semicircular repeated wave)

Sleeve length: 48 cm

I also wanna show you one of my christmas presents I got from my sister yesterday. It was really a surprise *_*/

I will wear this Komon and the Kanzashi definitely on the next Japan-Day in Düsseldorf. ♥
