Shinzi Katoh Shopping

I'm now into day three in Tokyo. I've been wanting to blog but was having internet connection issues. Fingers crossed they're fixed now. I'm about to dash off to Nippori Textile town but thought I'd leave you with some Shinzi Katoh eye candy. The shop (or actually shops, it's divided into two areas) is small but full of sweetness. I think the only thing that saved my credit card was that there were too many things I wanted so I couldn't decide and that I was so tired by the time I got there.

I'm a real sucker for an Alice in Wonderland design.



...or a Red Riding Hood design for that matter....


I think I'm going to go back there either tonight or tomorrow and pick myself up a tea set. Imagine having a tea party pouring tea from an Alice tea pot and drinking from Alice cups placed on Alice saucers. Then of course, I thought the Alice plate would look adorable with little cup cakes with pink icing and those little silver ball things. It would all have to be laid out on a table in the garden with a red gingham tablecloth of course. Anyone want to join me?

I'm so envious! They are fantastic photographs - I could buy all the Little Red Riding Hood and Alice Shinzi merchandise in a second!

I would love join your tea party. And more importantly, I have to get me to Tokyo! (Not long now...)

Thanks for posting Melanie - nothing like a bit of vicarious living through other people :)
