Tools are very useful.

I have few files that I use on a regular basis. Those are the small ones that you see at the bottom.
I also had bigger files in case I needed them for bigger things.

You just never know how useful one tools is until you use them for the right thing!
Now the big file is included in the "useful" family, and this is what it helped me make.

Wooden ring, a new collaboration pieces with a wooden brand Hacoa.

There are so many colors and shapes. I love spotting one in the rainy season. Their colors cheer you up even with all the gloominess and rain.

These are some of the hydrangea that I came across this year when I was walking Rain.

Yes he's the one that lets me know when it stopped raining and we can go out for a walk this time of the year.

This time of the year in Tokyo, it rains a lot and also starts to get humid. It's not too humid just yet.
But, scents and different smells are more apparent. It travels well with the humidity, or just stays where they are......
A lot of advertisements are about how to keep the bad smells away, or adding good scents.

At the ileava studio, we are preparing for an event for July.
Our new wood and silver collaboration pieces are in the works!

So here, we have the rain and also the scent of wood.  I will post the finished pieces here soon~

About a week ago, I went to go see roses with my family. They are plated all along the train tracks and it is only in May that they bloom all at once. 
It was really nice. It would've been fun looking  at them from the train too, and I'll do that next year I think.

The best part I think was that there were all these rose petals on the streets. All different colors~

June is all about rain and hydrangea.
