mail lovely mail


Today was a happy mail day. I received a package from Japan! Remember the One World One Heart event last month? I was lucky enough to win something :) I now have a lovely wee flock of peace cranes and some cute extras:)

A friend just emailed me: the item with images of "emperor" and "empress" says "o-hina-matsuri". This refers to the Girls' Day festival celebrated in Japan on Mar 3rd. They explain a bit more here: http://bit.ly/hPo2Rc

Thanks so much to Mekkan in Nagoya , Japan. Here's Monty giving the origami cranes his stamp of approval.

Looks to me like Monty's just waiting for you to turn your back so he can eat them.

That's funny, but no, Monty would never do anything like that. Can't you see the little halo above his kitty head? Although I did notice that one is missing this morning :)

Glad to know the package has reached to you. And thank you for posting about this with pictures beautifully taken. Now the doll's festival is over and I'll be busy putting back them into the box. Keep in touch. Have a nice weekend.
