My beautiful work-in-progress traditional Japanese-style room ("washitsu") for my dolls. ^^ (It’s sort of embarrassing, but it’s so pretty and relaxing to look at up on my shelves.) (Guests never come into my room anyway, so it’s not too bad.)
Now with more random Japanese things!! :)
Some are handmade, some are bought online and some are from local Thrift Marts (the screen, the stone flower and the wardrobe being from the lattermost.)
Content Info (I know you want to know, for you own boxes! Well, here’s what’s in it):
- The kaidan dansu on the right was handmade and hand-painted/stained from little wood blocks from Michael’s.
- The bonsai was MacGyvered from an old toy tree, some little aquarium stones and a sashimi mini eraser (the black pot it’s in) (the eraser is the same on as in this set here.)
- Go board: handmade using wooden blocks and knobs from Michael’s, a printed/laminated top from Wikimedia Commons, dremelled/sanded large wooden beads and black and white "E" beads.
- Karuta cards (in the black case): handmade, printed from a custom printable made from Wikipedia Commons public domain Karuta cards and combined/resized.
- Temari: also handmade. Considering that I had no clue what I was doing, beyond a slight recollection of some tutorials I read months ago, they turned out surprisingly well! :)
- Kokeshi dolls and maneki-neko cat: from this set: Doll & Cat 7 Pieces – Iwako Japanese Puzzle Eraser – Color May Vary by Iwako erasers (note: which I got from Amazon for free using gifts card I earned here.)
- Black calligraphy case: from the Re-Ment Office Lady Girls in the City #7 Calligraphy Set
- Hina Matsuri set: from the Re-Ment "Petite Sample" series Hina Ningyou
The doll herself is a semi-customized Yeolume Blackberry (from the Pullip dolls line) wearing the clothing from a Dal Hanaayame, Pullip Youtsuzu (the red bow) and a Taeyang Maguna (the violet pants.)
The roombox is a mini dreambox, which is cheap and for easy stacking. :) Much better than the smaller squares I was using before!! :)
