プーシキン美術館展~ブッフェDinner♪

昨日の続きですが、、、
愛知県美術館で開催中の"プーシキン美術館展"を見てきました。
ロシアの皇帝・貴族・大富豪が収集したフランス絵画のコレクション展です。
IMG_4304.jpg
ルノアールなど、印象派の作品はどれも好きなものばかりで。。。

あとこの度は、この優美で繊細なロココ美術の作品に惹かれました。

This article is a continuation from yesterday.
I went to the Nagoya art museum to see the "Pushkin Museum exhibition".
It was special collection of French art
which was done by the Russian emperors, nobles and super wealthy in Moscow.
I liked all the impression arts including by Lenoir.
In addition, I was attracted by the French rococo art this time.
It was so beautiful and delicate.

Those splendid arts really stimulated me and I was quite satisfied.
Then I headed to "Nagoya Tokyu Hotel" which I could go on foot,
to have a dinner.

The main meal was roast beef,
but cakes at the restaurant were all so delicious.
I tried to eat all the kinds of cakes.
I made a special dessert dish with some pancakes and toppings
such as fruits and cream.

It was a very satisfying half day off.

初JAZZ喫茶♪ -YURI-

昨日は午後からお休みをもらって名古屋市の美術館へ。
その前に。。。スイーツ休憩♪
栄にある老舗のJAZZ喫茶「YURI」さんへ初来店。
IMG_4302.jpg

「いかにも」じゃない、入りやすい感じで、店内もいわゆる喫茶店風。
レコードがたくさんあるのと、少し大きな音で流れるJAZZが違うところ。
IMG_4303.jpg
生のレコードのJAZZ、いいですね~

コーヒーとスイーツ、いただきました。
私はかぼちゃのケーキ、そして奥のがバナナのケーキ。
どちらもアツアツなのです

Yesterday, I had a half day off, and went to an art museum in Nagoya city.
Before that, I took a short rest with coffee and cake
at a Jazz and coffee shop "YURI" in Sakae for the first time.

It did not looked very "jazz music cafe".
It looked normal cafe, so I could enter without any hesitation.
Some differences were... there were a lot of records
and the sound of music was slightly loud.
I liked the sound of record.

I had a cup of coffee and pumpkin cake.
And my friend had a banana cake.
Surprisingly, both cake were very hot.
Moistened and full of taste of material, and really good!!

As we were so comfortable in there,
we forgot the passage of time and enjoyed that place.

I will write the continuation of this story tomorrow...

Has the rainy season already started?
I thought so when I heard the news.
Today it is rather chilly compared with the passed unbroken fine weather.
During the chilly rainy season, and to avoid sunburn on sunny days,
wearing scarf around neck is recommended.

I would like to introduce two vintage scarves made by "Jacqmar".
The scarf brand was founded in 1932, and be loved by collector all over the world.
It's famous for their variety of attractive print patterns,
but these two are quite classic flower pattern.

One is a print scarf has various flowers and greens on it. It's like a flower garden.
The other pattern is arranged flower with ancient vase.
As for the details of each scarf, please see the product page of my web shop. .

Last weekend, I had a breakfast at "Earl Grey"
which was near the Sunomata-cho library.
It was in the residential area, but its yellow color was outstanding.

The breakfast was daily special.
We can have it only for the price of drink.
Coffee was 380 yen.

It was like a basic breakfast in Gifu area, but it looked lovely and heart-felt.

I felt relieved sitting in a cozy window seat.
The cafe should be loved by the local people.

こんにちわ。赤ちゃん♪ &グランフロント大阪

昨日は日帰りで大阪まで♪
というのも先週金曜日に、大阪に住む我が妹の赤ちゃんが誕生したから。
予定日より随分早かったので、急遽。。。

こんにちわ、べいびい

Yesterday, I went on a day trip to Osaka.
Because, on last Friday, the second baby of my younger sister
who was living in Osaka was born.
It was very earlier than a due date, I was in a hurry to go there.

Hello, baby!!
Hands of baby were so small and pretty.
They were holding infinite possibility. . .
I was deeply moved.

On the way home, I dropped by the newest landmark of "GRAND FRONT OSAKA"
for a short time.
At "UMEKITA HIEOBA", I liked the stepped water fall.

I looked around some stores which I had been interested to visit,
and finally, I went to a new bakery from NY.
I wanted to buy "pretzel croissant" of "THE CITY BAKERY", but it had been sold out.
So, I purchased biscuit and scone which were barely left there.
And I left for my home.

"フラ"イベント&バラまつり -花フェスタ記念公園-

昨日は、"フラ"のイベントに参加のため、可児の花フェスタ記念公園へ。
ド緊張でしたが、無事に終えることが出来てホッとしました

出番の後には、世界のバラ園を散策。。。

満開のバラ・バラ・バラ

今回気になった品種。イギリスの"フィリス・バイド"。
IMG_4200.jpg
アプリコットピンクのツルバラですが、満開になると淡桃色になり、
その後花弁が反って長く咲き続けるそうです。

バラのお菓子をいくつか購入して帰りました♪

Yesterday, I went to the "Flower festival memorial park" in Kani
to participate an event of Hawaiian hula.

I had been so nervous until it started,
but I finished it without any mistakes and was relieved.

After the attending the event, I walked through the "World rose garden" in the park.
Almost all kinds of roses in there were full in bloom.

This time I was attracted to the rose of "Phyllis Bide" which came from England.

It's a rambling rose of apricot pink color.
After it has fully bloomed, the color turns into light pink,
and its petals are curved and last long.

I bought some sweets of rose flavor.
The "Rose & rosehip cookies" is for myself.
The name sounds like that it will make me beautiful when I eat it!!

新しい仲間♪  

先日、知人の花屋さん「Dominique-ドミニック」さんにて
我が家では3個目となるエアプランツを購入してきました。
月に2-3度の水遣りで済むから私にぴったりの植物なのです

不格好さが妙に愛嬌あって、この子にしました。

一目ぼれして、頂いちゃったドライフラワー。

フラワーというより、ドライ果実らしいです。

The other day, I bought an Airplants which was the third one in my house.
I bought it at my acquaintance flower shop "Dominique" in Gifu city.
They can grow with only a few water, so it is good for lazy person like me.

I liked its strange shape, so I bought the Tillandsia seleriana.

What appears behind the Tillandsia is the dried flower
which I fell in love at first sight in the flower shop, and he gave it to me.

It's not actually dried flower, it's dried fruits of sternkugel.
Sternkugel means "ball of the star" in German.
They are so fairytale-like!!

They both are my lovable new housemates.

From the new product which I uploaded the other day,
I would like to show two pieces of necklace made with iris glass.
Iris glass is also called "rainbow glass",
and is characteristic of transparent filaments of pink, green and blue color
into clear glass.

The first one is made with design metal shape and small pieces of iris glass.
It is a image of lovely small flowers.

The other is made with slightly bigger pieces.
The glasses have clearness and brightness.
As they are not foiled back, the beauty of their original color is stand out.

Both necklace is refreshing and brilliant.
Good for coming summer season.

The rose which I bought when I went to the "Flower Festa Park" in Kani last year,
is in full blossom.
"Jubile du Prince de Monaco" is a rose
which was given in commemoration of the enthronement's 50th anniversary
of the Principality of "Rainier III".

Its color of edge is pink red.
So pretty and also elegant.

Roses in my garden bloomed so good this year, but it's almost end.

As well as the roses, strawberry was bumper crop.
I can eat fresh strawberries every morning.
It's a time of the supreme bliss.

I owe it all to my mother.
Thanks a lot!!

From the new product which I uploaded the other day,
I would like to write about cute motif pierced earrings.

Both pierced earrings were remade with vintage glass beads and new parts.

The first one is pretty bird motif.
They were probably made in Czechoslovakia.
The style is "Egyptian revival" which was popular in 1920s.
The taste of milk glass and expressions of the birds are so good.

The other one is vivid color art glass of carrot motif.
They were made by hand work, beautiful glass beads.

They both are so lovely!!
Good for cute motif lovers.

"Soup curry" is originally from Hokkaido, and I really like it.
A soup curry specialty shop opened in Gifu.
It's "Soul Spice".

Most of the soup curry shop has unique atmosphere,
but this shop was simple, and like a cafe.
Because it is run by women??

There was plenty of soup and big cut colorful vegetables in the bowl.
I put some rice on the spoon and soaked it into the soup.
It's a standard way of eating soup curry.
As for the hotness, I ordered 30 level.
Normally, the hottest level is 7.

Spices worked accurate but moderate.
The soup was mild and tasty.
It seemed to be able to eat even by beginners.

I liked the "bu- bu-" which was big boiled soft pork in it.
Thanks to the shop, my choices of "curry food" will be increased.

After I went the rose garden, I kept going to the next town over the river,
and went to a cafe "MORI No CAFE" to have a breakfast.

The cafe used to be "MARIMO coffee" before.
Now, it is run by "Morimoto Cobo" which makes homemade ham and sausage.

My interest was... their pancake breakfast.
The pancake was small and had a mark of M on the top of the surface.
It was served with caramel and chocolate sauce.
It was not a chewy pancake, but was fluffy.

The breakfast came with a salad with their homemade ham and sausage.

Their pasta lunch on the menu looked good.
The cafe was cute and had a natural taste.

Yesterday and today, "Rose festival" had been held at Ono rose garden.
I went to see the roses.
It was quite crowded, but the roses were in full bloom.

This year, I liked the rose named "Anne Frank".
Its fragrance was good and the mixed colors with apricot and pink were so beautiful.

There were three kittens dumped in a cardboard case beside the park.
The person who dumped those cats thought that
there should have been someone who could keep them?
I felt like I'd been drawn into their eyes.

I did not buy any seedlings of rose this time.
But I bought some cut roses for dried flowers.
I was said "Do you still need more roses???" as I expected.

During the last GW, I took an excursion to a cafe in Inazawa city
and had a breakfast there.
Risa-san who is a master of "MORNING" recommended the cafe some time ago.
It was Japanese-modern comfortable cafe.

We ordered Mikamo blend coffee and iced coffee.
The syrup for iced coffee was black.
Was it made from brown sugar??

The breakfast was elaborate.
Mini egg sandwich was made with colored bread.
A small toast of orange peel bread, potato gratin,
and a small cut of chiffon cake.
The potato gratin which was made with curry taste mashed potato
was absolutely good!

I became curious about the seasonal drink.
Especially, hot strawberry chocolate drink sounded nice.

Long drive paid off, after all.
I was quite happy with the breakfast excursion.

This is a souvenir of Tokyo from my friend.
Dried fruits with chocolate from a chocolatier which is popular with celebs.

It was called " Love Sweets"!

Some dried fruits such as a melon, an apple, mango
and kiwi were partly covered with chocolate.

The interesting one was tomato.
It was exquisite taste.
Mild taste of chocolate matched the acidity and sweetness of the dried fruits.
I was surprised at unexpected deliciousness.

It was so hot in the daytime, I had ice caffe latte with double espresso.
The other one in the photo is caffe latte with Caramelization.
Throughout the lesson, I smelled its sweet fragrance of caramel,
so I was happy with it.

After that, I went to the nail salon.

It's like an abstract-style painting.

I went to a bakery cafe "Le lupin bleu" which opened in this January to eat lunch.
I had been interested since it was opened.

It was Canadian log house, same as the cafe which I wrote about yesterday.
Since I went there after the lunch time, it was not crowded.

There was a bakery space near the entrance.
I chose a piece of bread and ordered a cup of coffee at the counter.
Then I took a seat in a cafe space.

The bread was topped with maple syrup.
It was so fluffy and moist inside.
A little sweet and so yummy.

The bread was good and the cafe itself was cute.
And I am interested in their breakfast and lunch.
I would like to go there again!

Yesterday, I went out to Nanno-cho and had a breakfast there.
It was a big Canadian log house coffee shop "Lake Louise".
They also sell fresh home made bread inside the cafe.

According to my self common-sense,
breakfast should be served at the price of drink only.
But at this cafe, we should have paid extra charge.
I went to the cafe for the first time and I did not know it,
so there was no other choice.
I had a high-priced breakfast unexpectedly.
It was in total 700 yen.
( coffee 400 yen + breakfast 300 yen)

The content of the breakfast was ... sesame bread toast,
half melon bread, salad, long sausage and potate salad.
Quite big and everything was tasty, so it was fair enough?
I think I am living in the lovely area
where there are full of conscientious coffee shop.

The cafe was calm and had a relaxed atmosphere,
I could enjoy a leisurely breakfast.
It was an occurrence that seldom happens, so,
having such an expensive breakfast was not so bad.

昨日は、待ちに待った?!"探偵はBARにいる2"の公開日。
レイトショーで見に行ってきました~
IMG_3862.jpg

前作、私的にはかなり面白かったので、今回も期待♪
で、それを裏切らない、とっても楽しい作品でした。

ハチャメチャなのに、ゆるーい感じとVintage感満載の映像と音楽。
おんぼろViewt(ビュート)、相変わらずボケボケの松田隆平も楽しい。
オカマ役のゴリさんが結構ハマり役でした。

洋ちゃんの、かっこいいわけじゃないけどナゼか渋くみえてしまうとこ、いいな。
シリーズ化してほしいです。 「探BAR3!」、ありでしょう

Yesterday, the long-waited movie "A private detective in the bar 2" was released.
I went to see the movie at night service time.

I personally really liked the first one, so I was waiting expectantly.
After all, it was pretty funny more than I expected.

It was so insane, but full of relaxed feeling and vintage-like image and music.
Worn-out car "Viewt" and dissimulating "Ryuhei Matsuda"
were same as before, and so funny.
"Gori" was quite a suitable person for the role of a gay.

"Yo Oizumi" was actually, not so handsome, but sometimes he looked so cool.
That was also fun to see.
I hope that the movie is made into series.
There should be "A private detective in the bar 3"!!

週末モーニング♪ -珈琲店グラス-

ご近所北方町に3月にオープンした"の珈琲店グラス"さんでモーニング♪

もともと喫茶店だったのかな?改装し新しくしたみたいです。
中央にはらせん状の階段があり、二階にも席があるもよう。

I had a breakfast at "Coffee shop Glass" which was opened in March In Kitagata.
It used to be an another coffee shop or restaurant, and seemed like newly opened.
There were a spiral stairs in the center of the shop,
and it seemed that there were some seats on the second floor.

At first, coffee came with a cup of corn soup.
Then a plate came with various dishes on it.
Macaroni salad, sausage, boiled egg, two kids of bread and ANMITSU?!
The dishes were special of the day and bread was homemade.
The day's bread was croissant and mini round bread.
There was orange peel in the round bread, and tasted good.
Surprisingly, as for the bread, we could have a second (and more) helping.

The breakfast was only 380 yen.
Both quality and quantity were perfect!

今年も咲きはじめました♪ -庭の花-

楽しみにしていた庭の薔薇が咲き始めました♪

以前からある薔薇たち。。。
IMG_3819.jpg

IMG_3817.jpg

昨年購入した、"エモーション・ブルー"もちゃんと咲いてくれました
IMG_3818.jpg
母のお世話の賜物なんですけど

薔薇の下、地面に密かに咲いてた"ブルーベル"。
IMG_3816.jpg
華やかさはないけど、この控えめで可愛らしい花も素敵です♪

The roses in my garden have started to bloom.
I'd been looking forward to see them blooming.

Apart from the roses which had been there for years,
the new one called "Emotion Blue" which I bought last year
had bloomed properly too.
It all owe to my mothers care, though.

Under the roses, "Blue Bell" was blooming secretly.
Though they were not so gorgeous like roses,
I liked their modest and pretty appearance.

本日のスイーツブレイク♪ -モーリー-

事務所近くの"生ジェラート家 モーリー"でスイーツ&コーヒーブレイク♪
出来たての「生」ジェラートとケーキ、コーヒーのセットをオーダーしました。
札をもらって、待ち。。。
IMG_3813.jpg

手前がカモミール、奥が豆乳リゾットのジェラート♪
IMG_3814.jpg
ミルク味ベースにほんのりカモミールの香る優しい味。
一方のリゾット。これは興味津々で頼みましたが。。。
なめらかな豆乳クリームジェラートに、ツブツブお米の食感が楽しい

ティラミスケーキとコーヒー。
IMG_3815.jpg
ケーキはいたって普通かな。。。口当たりよくって美味しいです。
コーヒーは苦味の立つ、少し個性的な味わいでした。

盛りだくさんのスイーツで、残った仕事へのやる気アップ~

生ジェラート家 モーリー 岐阜県大垣市安井町6丁目15-5

I had a sweets & coffee break at "Gelato Morry" close to my office.
I ordered a sweets set of gelato and cake and coffee.
I got a tag and waited at the table seat.

On the left, front one was gelato of chamomile taste.
It was gentle milk taste and had slightly chamomile flavor.
The other one, on the back was soybean milk risotto gelato.
I ordered it because I was interested to taste its unusual combination.
The soybean milk gelato itself was so smooth.
And the texture of rice was unexpectedly funny!!

Tiramisu cake and coffee...
The cake was good in its way.
The coffee had a little bitterness and kind of individual taste.

My motivation for the rest of work was improved with the various lovely sweets!!

レトロでおしゃれなワーゲンバス♪

GW中、イベントに来ていた友人と合流。
最近買ったという愛車を見せてもらいました~♪

ほぼ同級生?なのに、新品みたい!塗装し直してあるらしいです。
内装もキレイにリフォーム中とのこと。
かわいいけど。。。もちろんエアコン無し! これから耐えられるのか~(笑)

いちばん気になったアクセサリーはこれ!

During the past GW, my friend came to near my house
to see his friends' performance at an event.
So I went to see him and his new car.

VolksWagen Wagen Bus, made in 1974

It's almost the same age as me, but like a new car!
Beautiful and in good condition.
He said it had been re-colored.
He is now organizing its interior.

It looked so lovely, but of course, there was no air-conditioner.
Hot summer is coming soon.
Will he be able to bear the heat??

The most interesting interior was a picture of "Shingo Yanagisawa".
I took my hat off to his individual sense.

Thanks to buying the retro match which I wrote about it the other day!

I went to "Tanaka Coffee" to have a breakfast.
There were a lot of ducks out side the cafe, and that's why I chose the cafe.
I thought my niece would liked them!

I had a sweet breakfast which was chiffon cake on that day.
Plentiful fresh cream and caramel sauce were served with the cake!

The other breakfast was bread set.
The day's bread was "Miso".
It was served with salad, chawan-mushi, and delicious sausage.
Both breakfast was 350 yen.

On the way home, we took the long way and stopped by the "Akasaka Sports Park"
to see some wisteria flowers.
It was too late to see their peak.
But some were still blooming beautifully and many people were there to see them.

GWのお出かけ -ブルーメの丘-

GW後半は天気もずっと良くて 絶好のお出かけ日和♪
ちょっぴり遠出して、滋賀県の"ブルーメの丘"に初めて行ってきました。
チューリップなどの花がお出迎え
IMG_3750.jpg

園内の大きなお花畑にも、まだチューリップが満開。。。

The weather was so pretty during the later half of the GW,
every day was perfect for going out.

We went for an excursion to "Blumen Hugel" in Shiga for the first time.
A lot of flowers including tulips were welcomed us at the entrance.

There was a big flower garden in the park, and all the tulips were in full bloom.

Smiling sheep made me feel better.
And I got healed by two alpacas.

I was worried about the traffic jam of going and returning,
but we didn't hit any big traffic jams.
That was really good!!

チョコづくしのケーキ♪ -TOURTIE`RE-

GWのお菓子を買いに、ご近所パティスリーの「TOURTIE`RE」トゥルティエールさんへ♪

ついでにコーヒーブレイク
ビッシュショコラ
ビッシュが「木、丸太」という意味だそうなので、丸太のチョコケーキ!
IMG_3623.jpg
ガナッシュ、ムース、スポンジ、と全てがチョコ。
甘くってほろ苦くって、軽いけど濃厚なチョコの美味しさを堪能できる、
チョコ好きのためのケーキでした

パリブレスト
IMG_3622.jpg
飾り気のないシンプルなケーキですが、
その分クリームの上質感が重要
しっかりめのシュー生地に濃厚なクリームで美味しかったそうです~♪

やっぱり美味しい TOURTIE`REさんのケーキ。。。

↓ Please visit my 'Vintage & Antique' Webshop   


I went to a neighborhood patisserie "TOURTIE`RE" to buy some sweets for GW.
Incidentally, I had a coffee break there with their lovely cake.

-bûche de hocolat-
"bûche" means tree or log, so it's a chocolate cake which shape is chopped log.

Ganache, mousse, and sponge were all made with chocolate.
It was sweet and bitter sweet, light but mild cake for chocolate lover.

-paris-brest-
It's a plain and simple cake, but therefore cream should be high quality.
The choux pastry was well baked, and the cream was so thick and tasty.

After all, cakes of TOURTIE`RE are so delicious...

可愛いヴィンテージのマッチ♪

1166.jpg
120程のマッチがプラスチックのケースに入っています。
パステルのレインボーカラーがなんとも言えずキュンとくる感じです

その名も「ハーレクイン」。
1166-1.jpg
ハーレクインとは、フランス語で道化師(ピエロ)を意味するアルルカンの
英語読みだそう。
ピエロっぽいといえばそうなのかも。。。?

From the new product which I uploaded the other day,
I would like to write about a set of vintage matches.
You might think "Is it useable?" or "How is it used for the other purpose?",
but it looks so cute!!

There are about 120 matches in a plastic case.
Rainbow-like pastel colors are so lovely.
It is named "Harleuin".
It means clown in French.
Hmm, if I say it fits in with the image of clown,
is it so?

It can be lighted at the back bottom of the case.

Made in England
Circa 1950s-1960s

Good for match collector, or also good as a unique interior.
As for the detail of it, please see the product page of my web shop.

小さな楽しみ♪

最近密かに楽しみにしてること、それは。。。この子達♪
IMG_3607.jpg

そう。ドライフラワーを制作中です。
制作って言っても、ただ乾燥するのを待ってるだけなんだけど
ただ、そのためにわざわざ切花を買ってきて、です。
バラも♪
IMG_3609.jpg

ドライフラワーのアレンジメントに行って、
「はながら」さんに作り方のコツ、ちょっぴり聞いたので実践です。
完成までは約一ヶ月かな?まいにち触って乾燥具合を見て楽しんでます。

ドライフラワーには蕾から開花したてくらいの花がいいらしいので、
咲きすぎちゃってた花は飾っときました。
IMG_3610.jpg
ところで、どっても可愛いんだけど。。。この花はなんて名前だろ??

The thing which I look forward to secretly is ...
Yes, I am now making dried flowers.
Even if I say "making", I am just waiting for them dried.
But I bought some cut flowers just for it.
Some kinds of spring flowers including roses.

The other day, I took part in a class of dried flower arrangement.
After the class, I heard some tips to make beautiful dried flowers from Hanagara-san.
So I am now practicing some of them.
It will take about 1 month.
Everyday, I touch their dry condition and I enjoy it.

Fully bloomed flowers are not for suitable for dried flowers, so I displayed them.

By the way, this flowers are so lovely, but I do not know what the name it is.
What a shame!!
