Quick and funny story as to why I have not posted this as scheduled: I was stuck in NY after the final Tokyo Rebel tea party with Misako Aoki due to the storm. So when I should have posted it later in the day on my bus ride home I was actually stuck trying to figure out where to stay for the night until I could catch a bus ride back to MD. Instead of my traditional 3 prompts per post you get 2 BONUS, I hope you enjoy!

I have been trying to get myself back into the habit of using a quill and work on my calligraphy skills. It takes time and patience and to get the feel of holding the quill just the right way and apply the right pressure. I am also not the best when it comes to handwriting but I am hoping that I can improve that over time.

I tried to print this out from my phone in prep for this post and failed ended up with just the word block section for some reason. Lace a la Mode does have 2 other ones to choose from but there are tones around the internet to check out and do if you want to do one.

I wanted to make a physical one that I could tuck somewhere amongst my things but I decided to go with a pinterest board for now. It just got too big to print out some of them and difficult to find pictures to grab from. This simply was an easier way of doing it for now. I think in the future I will want to make a physical board and from it to hang somewhere, right now my building doesn't really allow for things to be hung up so if I can make it a reasonable size I can sit it on one of my shelves.

This one was very easy because I was at a tea party today for the Tokyo Rebel store closing with Misako Aoki. There were so many cute lolitas there that I would say that I knew maybe about half and then half I hadn't met before. Of course, there was Misako Aoki, who was even cuter in person, she looked so perfect! I'm fairly certain I complimented quite a few people I had never met before as well as friends, there were just so many cute people there.

I'm so excited about this series and I can't wait to get my hands on the jsk I reserved, the sakura tea time oriental jsk. It's very reminiscent of Tea Time Nostalgia with it's tea cups cascading down the scroll tapestry segments but then drastically changes it's aesthetics from Western style scrollwork to a more Eastern styling details with the vines weaving and the sakura flowers gracing the branches. The print is also covered with tiny birds that look like finches.
Once I receive it I will be posting comparison photos, as I have Tea Time Nostalgia in green, to showcase the similarities and differences. I'm really can't wait to get it and I've been checking the website every few days to see if it's been released.
Well that's all she wrote, I have to go pass out now since I'm dreadfully tired after NY and had the weird desire to clean everything and clean all of my garments I wore while out. I picked up Meta's Star Rose Ribbon jsk and I wore it with other things I picked up so I wouldn't be stuck in the same coord, I love this dress so much!
It's off to dreamland for me, cheers! XOXO
