It has been a while since it last snowed in Tokyo. It is really colder in January and February here than it is in December.

But even if it snows all day, there are never snow on the asphalt, only on lawns and dirt. So there would never be enough to make a good snowman in this neihborhood!
I was thinking of making a very very small snowman, but thought that I needed to pull out my good gloves that I wear for skiing or snowboarding... and that wasn't going to happen today.

This was a card that I made. My dog making the snowman.

So, as I watched the snow fall today, while making waxes and new pieces, I was thinking of the new Kate Bush song Snowflake.

I wonder how many times it will snow this year~

the sea

I was going to the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, there was a jewelry show that I wanted to check out. As I got off the train, I could smell the salty air.
I forget how close the ocean is from where I live.

There are boats you can take across the bay so I think I'll look that up next time and try to enjoy the bay more.

going out

"I won't be out too late."

I would say to my dog. If only he could understand. He always looks so devastated~

I wore my new necklace with a long champange colored pearl necklace. The length of the pearl makes me feel more slender.
The diamond shaped necklace is a gold and blackened silver with a little bit or sparkle as accent.  More styles are on the ileava site too.

what do I like to do?

As I was cleaning some stuff out of the closet, I found this!

My good friend who knows me too well, gave this to me a while back.

It's one of my favorite things, puzzles......  trying to figure this out over the holidays really made it feel like the holiday seasons when you can relax a bit.

I hope this year will be a great year for everyone!

I put this up on the wall. The greens and the acorn are so cute and they are real~!
