I was out all day doing the holiday show at Kings County General Store — thank you SO much for everyone who came through, stopped by my booth, and for all your sweet words, wonderful support, smile, laughter, everything. I had another great time, thank you so much!

6 days until Christmas, I had a wonderful day :) I hope you did, too!

Another Holiday Market Tomorrow Dec. 19th

Kings County General Store people kindly invited me back and so I am doing another holiday show tomorrow, Sunday the December 19th at Southpaw in Park Slope. It’s sponsored by BUST magazine and it’s going on from noon to 7pm (The hours got extended) and the first 50 people would get a tote bag filled with goodies! Please stop by if you are in neighborhood or if you are planning to stop by GIFTED market, it’s walking distance to each other.

Happy Holiday Shopping! (I’m not done yet. aww)

Cozy Trees

There is a tree in my neighborhood that looks really cozy… because it is wearing a pretty red sweater :) It makes me smile every time I pass by. Sharing these photos so it makes you smile, too :)

It’s been another busy week… I hope you are hanging in there, too… :)

UPDATES: I found another one wearing a yellow sweater right next to this tree!

Do you see them together?

First Day of Spring

Beginning of this week is not so springy with rain and grey sky, but the past few days have been so gorgeous that we went to Prospect park everyday on the weekend just to enjoy the sun and the spring — everyone was thinking exactly the same, the park was packed and everyone was having a blast!

It was 70-something degrees, I was just wearing tee-shirts, but all the trees are still brown with no leaves and it looked weird — I saw little buds coming out, though!

The dog beach was finally open — saw many dogs around and a few were actually swimming and having fun! Made me smile :)

and I found some flowers! Everywhere else was all brown, but these little lives found their way to bloom — so inspiring.

On Sunday, there was an Irish parade on Prospect Park West (I think it’s for belated St. Patrick’s Day ceremony, too) — it was another gorgeous day and their spirit and everyone’s vibe were so nice.

Love these costumes!

Happy Spring to all of you :) xo Hijiri
