The birthday party was held at an art studio called, Colour My World, and the kids had a great time making a mixed media collage, followed by Storytime using puppets and various games. Theme= Yellow. Thank you so much for coming despite the rain!!! The adults had fun watching them, with a glass of wine in hand!
Many thanks to Ms. Anna Tam and her staff at Colour My World who made the day a very special one. We’ll be contacting you about the enrollment into the classes, too!
Handmade using Japanese lacquer
Passed on for generations
Small and cute
To be used by children
As they eat on their own
Created by Atelier Nushisa who stresses the importance of charm in things that are old that continue to teach us as well as things that are handmade, which give warmth- something familiar- like the taste of a favorite dish your mother made when you were a child.
I believe I am one of the very few carrying it outside of Japan….While there has been a huge number of interest on this and with little stock, I am thinking of doing a pre-launch sale of only one-set (red band) before my site goes live in early July. If interested, please sign up for my newsletter on Storytime (www.storytime.jp). I will send out the information via the newsletter.
Until recently, she was pronouncing, “Lello” instead of “yellow”. Now that she has learned how to say “Yellow” properly, she proudly says, “My favorite colour is YELLOW!!!” ALL THE TIME ( maybe at least once a day)!
Her third birthday will be coming up soon, and guess what the theme will be? Yes….YELLOW!
You can find the thoughtfulness in organic fabric that is incorporated in some of the collection …or the sophisticated yet fun use of the colors in her collections, as well as the creative details (ex.fringe along the pocket line, or even the colors used inside the dress as opposed to the outside). Attaching some FUN photos from the photoshoot- the girls all had fun!
Also, all the children did a fantastic job. So energetic despite the rain outside..and very patient. I think they had fun (I hope!).
I would like to thank the cute little models,their mothers as well as Rensis for doing a great job despite the long day- Thank you very much!!!!
Here is a sneak preview of some of the photos (obviously taken by me and not Rensis).
