I found them this morning...
Tulips were blooming in the garden.
They were almost full bloom.
Sorry, that I had not noticed long time.

On my way to work, rows of cherry trees
which were planted at an embankment were about 30% bloom.
Because the weather was also nice, I parked my car and took some photos of
cherry blossoms and my favorite mistletoe.

When I was looking at some cute and small purple flowers,
a ladybug was crawling up.

The spring morning dew which appeared on the field horstails was also beautiful.

It was such a slow and peaceful morning.

Yesterday, I went to a good old cafe called "Brazil" to have a breakfast.

Their blend coffee was 380 yen with breakfast.
I went there once, and I really liked their "avocado toast".
Though it looked not so good, tasted so nice!!

There were many kinds of breakfast.
I found one more choice of "fried bread" had added to the menu.

Yesterday, I chose "chocolate cream toast".
The cream was served by a container, so I could spread it as much as I liked.
Apart from the toast, there were udon, cocoa jelly, melon, boiled egg and a candy.

Here's one more photo of pizza toast.

As it was a traditional cafe, of course, there were some table with game of mahjong.

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the Kisosansen Park with my digital camera.

The tulip festival will begin from end of this week.
But it had already been blooming enough though it was one week earlier.

The cherry trees which were planted in the open space with lawn, were in full bloom.
I think they may be early-blooming kind.

It was a beautiful contrast between blue sky and light pink cherry blossoms.

It has been a warm and nice sunny day today!
So, we went out to see some flowers.
Before that, we headed to a cafe to have a breakfast.

But we went to a different cafe because we had had an small accident.
I had not been there for more than 10 years!
Long time no see!
( also, long time no see, Felix!? )

There coffee was 400 yen with breakfast.
They did not ask anything, so, there seemed to be only one kind.
It might change a bit every day??

I liked the salad spaghetti.
It was plenty, tasted simple, but nice.
The black liquid in the small white cup looks coffee, but it's not.
It was a cup of onion soup.

There also was an egg sandwich with roll bread.
Their breakfast was quite nice.

We all became full, and left there.

新商品掲載しました♪ - 猫のティータオル -

本日、イギリスで買い付けた新商品27点を掲載しました。
HPのトップページの"New Items"をどうぞご覧ください。

↓ Please visit my 'Vintage & Antique' Webshop   


その中から、今日紹介するのは、かわいい猫ちゃんのティータオル♪
1873HLO.jpg

「ティータオル」とは。。。イギリスで、18世紀ごろから使われ始めた麻製の布。
初めは無地だったものが、刺繍入のものやプリントが入ったものも多く作られました。
プリントものは、お土産品として現在も観光地などでよく見かけます。

キッチンで、お皿やガラスのコップを拭いたり、ティータイムに使ったり。。。
とまあ、言ってしまえば「台ふきん」ですね。
可愛いものだと壁に飾ったりもするようです。

この猫の柄も、とっても愛らしいので使うのはもったいないかな
1873HLO-1.jpg
ちなみに、素材は麻と綿の混合です。

詳細は、こちらの商品ページをご覧下さい。

Today, I uploaded 27 pieces of new items to the web site.
Please go to the HP and look at its contents of "New Items" on the top page.

Among them, I introduce a pretty cat print tea towel.
What is "Tea Towel"?
It's a linen cloth which has been used in England from about 18th century.

At first, it was plain, but later, embroidered and printed.
As for the print ones, I can see them at souvenirs shop at sightseeing place even now.

It is used in a kitchen for wiping the dishes and glasses.
In other case, it is used at a table in teatime.
I can say it "台ふきん" in Japanese.

If some ones pretty or beautiful, they are often displayed on the wall.

This cats' print is too adorable to use.

By the way, the material of its tea towel is mixture of linen and cotton.

The other day, I bought some sweets made by shop in Kumamoto via internet.

This longtime seller cake is called "liqueur marron",
and it seems to be known by everyone in Kumamoto.

The shop "SWISS" was opened as a first confectionery in 1962.
They have been selling this cake since then
but they have not changed its recipe.
it really is oldfashion cake.

The butter cream with marron was very rich and heavy!
Both the cream and its sponge contained a lot of liqueur
and tasted good for adult.

The green aluminum foil which wrapped the cake, looked nostalgic!
And I found a curious character on its seal secretly.
It was really a mysterious chestnut character??

According to the brochure which attached to the other sweets...
His name is "Kumamoto Kurito". (or Kurihito or Kuribito??)

Anyway, it's too surreal.
He did not match for the image of the cake.
Though I really liked the cake itself.

I went to "software peer Japan Center" to do some work.
While I was there, I had a breakfast at a restaurant & cafe inside the building.
It was operated by "delica suito"
which was a well known dide dish and lunch box provider in Ogaki.

At the table, I could see nice view from the big window.

Their coffee was 360 yen and they serve free breakfast until 11:00.

As they are a lunch provider... there was only one breakfast with rice ball.
There were the day's rice ball(seaweed), salad, miso soup and a boiled egg.
It was quite healthy.

I ate rice after a long long absence in the morning.
But I thought it was a good thing.

Yesterday, I took a walk hanging my camera as rehabilitation.
I walked slowly in a small park along the bank.

There were buds of the magnolia swelling out.

I found Sweet little blue flowers in the shade.

Field horsetails had already grown up.

Finally, I discovered cherry blossoms in full bloom.
I think they were not plum flowers??
A bird was also enjoying viewing cherry blossoms.

Today, there was an official announcement
that the cherry trees are in bloom in Gifu city.
Many people may have a cherry blossom party this weekend.

味の方は、クッキーは軽めの食感で甘さ控えめ。

There's a bottle of rose water for confectionery that I bought
when I went to the United States.
It had been stored for about 6 month??
I thought I got to use it.

Then I baked some sugar cookies of rose fragrance, and also,
I did icing decoration of rose fragrance.

I had never done icing before, so I could not make right hardness icing.
It was difficult unexpectedly.
So, I could not draw roses beautifully.

Here's the ones.
I made them with much effort, so I up the picture of them.

I also made some bird's shape cookies.
I wanted to decorate them with lovely pattern in green icing.
But there was not enough green icing, so I did them haphazardly.

The taste itself was not so bad.
They were light and slightly sweet.
The icing added fair sweetness.
And they had good taste of rose slightly, and so so nice.

But the icing decoration was too bad.
I want to try to do it again some day soon.

Long time no see! Here's one more kanji name (substitute character) coffee shop!

But not joking or fun, it was a earnest name.
It reads just "SATORI" as it shows.

Somewhat Japanese taste, calm and adult cafe.

Their coffee was 430 yen including breakfast, and they brew it one by one properly.

There were two kinds of toast, margarine and cinnamon sugar, and I liked them.
Cup and saucer was made by Noritake, and they looked gorgeous.
Ladies of the coffee shop were both refined and fair.

I could spend an excellent breakfast time there!

Spring is coming near.
That's why I chose light gentle color for my nails this time.

At a first look, they look like young leaves or cherry blossoms, aren't they?
But the real theme is "succulent plants".

I had the small gold dots on my nails to make them look like thorns of the cactus.
But they might not look properly, though.

Apart from the cactus, there are many kinds of succulent plants,
and some have lovely colors like the photo.

I want to try such a group planting.

This is the last article about one day trip to Shiga.

On my way home, we went to a cake shop to buy some sweets on "white day".
Before I went to Shiga, I found there was a sweets shop which specialize in eclair.
To avoid "sold out", I ordered the day before.

When we arrived there, there were not any cakes left in the shop as I had expected.
It was good that I had reserved.
I took them back home happily.

I opened the box and was surprised to see the long eclair!
See some photo of them.
Mocha and special time-limited strawberry millefeuille and some others...

I also bought some baked confectionery of cannele de Bordeaux.
They were small and looked cute.

As it was a specialty store, their eclair was so nice!!
Contrariwise, the cannele de Bordeaux had not so good texture
in comparison with the genuine one.

This is a continuation from yesterday.

After walking along the lake shore, we went to a cafe to have a break.
It was built in the Meiji era, and is used as a youth hostel now.

And one space is used for a cafe.
It was a nice mixed style between Japanese and western,
and was comfortable atmosphere.

I ordered a pot of tea unusually,
because the flavor tea of "bergamot peach" sounded lovely.
Of course, we both ordered some sweets.

Set of two kinds of the day's sweets and ice cream, and chiffon cake.

In the cafe, the sounds of an analog record was nostalgic, and I liked it.
Their drink and sweets set were unexpectedly conscientious price,
so, I recommend the cafe!

Thanks to a generous carer, I could go out quite farther on Saturday.
We went to the ceramic art museum in Shigaraki to see "Risa Larson exhibition".
In front of the museum, I did not know why but,
I found that a big panda was overturned and laughed.

As for the exhibition, quite large number of her works were displayed,
but not too crowded.So, it was easy to look around.

She is a famous Swedish ceramist,
and popular for its animal and child theme works.
But I was attracted more by surreal works.
So, I bought its postcard and clear file.

I really liked the "floral design shirt and mustache".
One was sitting on a chair, and the other was lifted by his wife.

The combination of striped pants and floral shirt was amazing!!

By the way, the exhibition will be also held at JR Nagoya Takashimaya in June.

I dropped in the Lake Biwa.
And had a rehabilitation walk along the lake shore.

On Sunday morning, I felt easy having a breakfast at a cafe with my family.
At first, we had things to do in Motosu city, and after that, went to a cafe near there.

The cafe was renewed from the other cafe.

Their coffee was 400 yen with free breakfast.
The French toast was well soaked in the egg liquid, and so moist.
Personally, I prefer more crispy texture, though.

The other breakfast set of toast set was gorgeous with very thick toast.
Fried potato with its skin was added to the set, so it was rather big.

Hot dog breakfast set was already sold out when we get there.
Someone who want to eat it, has better to be there early in the morning.

From the new products, I introduce a pair of vintage earrings.
They are small flower earrings made of ceramic.

Pink rose, purple pansy and ... I am not sure about the tiny yellow flower,
but, anyway, they are so cute!

Don't you think that they look very English-like?
Yes, they were made in England as signed.

They are clips, so it's easy to put them on.
Bad thing is... they need careful handling because.
It may break easily if you drop them on the floor.
Actually, there is already one little chip.
Please forgive it as it's extremely small.

that my friend had bought me in Takashimaya, Nagoya.
They were chocolate-tip melon bun and sakura pie
which were made by German cake shop "Königskrone".

The pie would probably be limited sale during this sakura season.
It was so delicious!!
In a crunchy pie, there were sakura-taste bean paste and a big chestnut.

今日はその中から、馬のモチーフブローチを2つ紹介します。

ハンサムな黒い馬のブローチ♪
1821JBB.jpg
ベースメタルに黒く塗られた、シンプルな作りなので、
さりげなく身につけられそうです。

こちらは少し可愛らしい感のある馬。
1822JBB.jpg
タテガミや尻尾、足の部分にがマーカサイトで飾られています。
控えめに輝くのが魅力。

テイストは違いますが、どちらもヴヴィンテージ感ある個性的なブローチです。

There are some animal motif brooches among the new products.
All of them are costume jewelry, so they can be used casually.

Among them, I introduce two horse motif brooches today.

The first one is cool black horse brooch.
It's just simply painted with black on base metal.
So, it seems to be worn more casually.

The second one is a bit more pretty.
Its mane and tail and foot are decorated with marcasite.
They are shining modestly.

Each has different taste,
but both of them are lovely individual brooches with full of vintage taste.

As for the details of the products, see their product pages.

りんごのパウンドケーキが。。。

お休みの間、頂いてから少し日数が経ってしまったりんごでお菓子作り♪
黒糖とりんごのパウンドケーキを焼いてみました。
IMG_0204_20150309180640c6a.jpg
ま、普通に焼けたんですけどね。

ちゃんと膨らんだし、こんがりいい具合♪
IMG_0205_201503091806410df.jpg

黒糖使ったから見た目はイマイチですが、まあ優しいお味で、しっとり。
IMG_0206.jpg
でも不思議なんですよ。。。 わかります?緑色の部分。

りんごしか入れてないんだけど。。。なぜ?
皮ごと使ったから、皮の赤色がなにかと反応したのかな?
不思議~ お菓子作りはある意味科学だわ~

On Sunday,
I made a cake with an apple that some days had passed since I got it.

I baked a pound cake of apple and brown sugar.

I've done it quite well.
It swelled properly, and had lovely brown color.

As I used brown sugar,
it looked not so beautiful, but it was moist and had delicate taste.

But the mysterious thing was... I found some green parts in it.
I did not use any green ingredients.
Why it happened?

It might red skin of the apple had reacted with other substance??
It was very strange.
I had never had this experience.
I thought making sweets was somewhat scientific!

枝垂れ梅が美しく咲くお寺♪ - 光受寺 -

梅の花の綺麗なお寺があるということで、出かけてきました♪

境内には、赤や白、ピンクと様々な梅が咲いていましたが、
名を馳せているのは枝垂れ梅 (しだれうめ)。

梅のほかにも絵になるものが。。。

I went out to a temple to see blooming flowers of plum trees.
In the precincts, there were various plums were blooming in white, pink and red.
Most popular kind among them was "Shidare-Ume".

Other than the plum trees, I could see some attractive scenes,
such like blooming camellia and pussy willow which let us feel of coming of spring.

Full bloom of he "Shidare-ume", also named "Hiryu-ume"
seemed to be a few days later.

I want to come again to this temple with my digital camera.

トーストが凄いモーニング♪ - レイン -

瑞穂市役所巣南庁舎のすぐ北東にあるこちらの喫茶店。
IMG_0108.jpg

以前は別の喫茶店だったとことが、新しくなり、
まだ利用していなかったのですが。。。 
今日は近場でモーニング、ということで行ってまいりました。
すっきりしたつくりで落ち着きます。ちなみに珍しい全席禁煙
IMG_0110.jpg

コーヒーをお願いすると、「モーニングはお付けしますか?」と聞かれますよ(笑)。
丁重に「お願いします。」と答えましょう♪

コーヒー ¥380 とモーニング
IMG_0111.jpg

IMG_0112.jpg
まず厚みのすごいトーストに悶えました ふわっふわの極上トーストです。
そしておそらく日替わりですが、たっぷりの温かいお蕎麦も美味しかった♪

IMG_0113.jpg
この厚み、私のモーニング史上最高値です。

大変お値打ちなモーニングですが、コーヒーも美味しいんです。
香りがよくコクがあるのに、すっきりとした味わい。

近所だと思って舐めてかかっていました。。。 久々にノックアウトされたモーニングでした!

The cafe was located just northeast of Mizuho city hall of Snami building.

There was another coffee shop there, and it renewed.
I had not ever been there since then.

Today, I wanted to go to somewhere near my house to have a breakfast,
so, I chose the cafe.
It was clean and tidy, and non-smoking cafe unusually.

When I ordered a coffee,
then master asked me "You want to add breakfast to it, don't you?".
I said "Pleasae" respectfully.

There coffee was 380 yen, and it came with free breakfast.
At first, I was surprised to see the thickness of the toast.
It was fluffy and extremely nice.
Also, I think it's daily dish, the warm soba was plenty in the dish and tasted good.

The toast was the thickest one I had ever eaten as a service breakfast.

It was very good value for breakfast, but the coffee itself was delicious.
Aromatic, deep and clean taste.

I was despising neighborhood cafe, so I was knocked out completely!

新商品UPしました♪ - ビンテージレース -

本日午後から、お仕事復帰♪
しばらくお休みしていたお店もOpen!

そして同時に。。。イギリスで買い付けた新商品27点を掲載しました。
HPのトップページの"New Items"をどうぞご覧ください。

その中から、今日紹介するのは、久しぶりに買ってきたヴィンテージのレース2点♪ 
DSC08112.jpg

薄いサーモンピンクのレースはとってもラブリー
1844HLL.jpg

とっても繊細なつくりで、お花柄の他にドットっぽいのも入ってて、可愛い♪
1844HLL-2.jpg

こちらはゴージャスな幅広のレース
1845HLL-1.jpg

柄的には似てるんですが、、、色と幅でかなりテイストは違うように感じますね。
1845HLL-2.jpg
こちらのほうが、より大人っぽい

どちらも機械編みのレースですが、状態が良く、おすすめです

I returned to work from this afternoon,
and opened "Vintique Carmona" which had been closed about 1 week.

At the same time, I uploaded 27 pieces of new items to the web site.
Please go to the HP and look at its contents of "New Items" on the top page.

Among them, I introduce vintage lace.
I bought it after a long absence.

The one in light salmon pink looks lovely.
It has very delicate structure.
The dot-like pattern with flowers is pretty.

The other is gorgeous wide lace.
It has similar pattern to the pink lace, but taste is different.
This is rather adult-like.

Both were made by machine, but condition are good.
I recommend them!

久しぶりの夜遊び♪ - Bois Cafe -

経過良好につき、友人に夜連れ出してもらいました♪
夜遊び、といっても飲みに。。。じゃなく、夜カフェでスイーツ(笑)
IMG_0053.jpg

お店に入った当初は、しばし貸切
IMG_0057.jpg

ここに来たら、カフェラテがマストとのこと。
というのも。。。 このキレイなラテアート
IMG_0054.jpg

友人のハートはちょっと別のテイストで、これも素敵です。
IMG_0055.jpg
お味ももちろん、まろやかさの中にコーヒーの控えめなアロマが~

チーズケーキとガトーショコラをそれぞれ注文。
IMG_0056.jpg
うわさ通り、チーズケーキの美味しさはかなりのもの♪ チーズ度高いです。

久しぶりの夜の外出&ガールズトーク。気分が晴れました!
お見舞いの品までいただき。。。ありがとー(@^^)/~~~

I was making steady progress.
So, my friend took me out last night.
Not to drink, though.
We just went to a cafe and had coffee and sweets.

We had to order caffe latte there, because...
The cafe was famous for its latte art.
Both of our latte had heart shaped art, but each had different taste.
Not just is appearance, the taste itsefl was off course nice.
There was a subtle aroma of coffee in the mildness.

We ordered cheese cake and gateau chocolate.
The cheese cake was really nice as the rumors had said.

Night going out & girls' talking after a long absence!
I felt a bit brighter.

Thanks for taking me out and giving me some presents!!

ロゴに萌える喫茶店♪ - スワロー -

これも過去ばなです。

木曽三川公園の帰りに愛知側へ渡ってモーニング♪
"スワロー"という店名。好きな"燕"だし、ロゴもかわいくて、
以前から行こうと思っていた懐かし系喫茶。

まず看板のロゴにキュン
IMG_9902.jpg

そして入口のロゴにキュン
IMG_9900.jpg

メニューの燕のイラストにキュン
IMG_9897.jpg

さらに、トーストの小倉ののっかり具合にキュン
IMG_9893.jpg

ちなみにブレンドコーヒーはモーニング付きで¥350。
小倉はのばしたら、かなりたっぷりで、再びキュン

わたし限定(笑)かな? かなりのとってお喫茶となりました♪

This is also a story about the past.

After going Kiso-sansen park,
I crossed two rivers and went to a cafe in Aichi prefecture to have a breakfast.
It was called "swallow", my favorite bird.
And its logo was so cute, so I wanted to go there for months.

At first, my heart twinged to see the logo of the signboard.
And also, the logo at the entrance.
Then, cute illustration of swallow on the menu.

Furthermore, the way of putting ogura on toast was somewhat lovely.

By the way, their coffee was 350 yen including breakfast.

Finally, as I leveled every servings of ogura on the toast,
it was quite plenty of it! I loved it!

Not for everyone, just me?? But the cafe became my favorite, really!

ウィンターチューリップ祭♪ - 木曽三川公園 -

楽しみのための外出は、現在なかなかできないので、
ちょっと前の出来事を綴ります。

2月7日(土)~3月1日(日)の間に開催されていた、
ウインターチューリップ祭り in 木曽三川公園♪
IMG_9962.jpg
規模は小さかったものの。。。

春のチューリップの前に、
冬に咲く"アイスチューリップ"が可愛く咲いてました。
IMG_9963.jpg

パンジーなんかも綺麗でした 
IMG_9964.jpg
この子は"アンティークシェード"という名前の品種で、
そのネーミングにも惹かれました♪

春のチューリップ祭りは、きっと4月に入ってから。
楽しみ~ デジカメもって撮りに行こうかな。。。

Going out just for fun is not possible for the time being.
So I write the things which I did slightly before.

I went to the "winter tulip festival" in Kiso sansen park
which had been held from February 7 to March 1.
The event was small one, but there were many lovely tulips blooming.
The kinds of tulip were called "Ice Tulip" which bloom in winter.
They bloom before spring tulip and made me feel happy in this cold winter.

The pansy was also beautiful.
I especially liked the one kind which was named "antique shade".
I liked its name itself.

I think spring tulip festival will be held from early in April.
I am looking forward to go there with my digital camera.

明日はひなまつり♪

兵庫にいる姪っ子たちのお祝いに添えて贈りました。
IMG_9961.jpg
一応わかると思いますが。。。 折り紙で作ったお内裏様とお雛様

美濃和紙の柄が、着物っぽくていい感じ♪
久しぶりに折り紙なんてしましたが、意外に難しかったです。

本番は明日ですが、もう"ひなまつり"の宴は昨日済ませたみたい。
土日にやっちゃうおうちが多いんだろうな。。。

I attached these small gift to some presents to my nieces
who are living in Hyogo.

As you can see, they are an emperor and a doll with origami.
The beautiful pattern of the Mino Japanese paper looks like real Kimono.

I did origami after a long absence, it was difficult unexpectedly.

The real Dolls' Festival is tomorrow, probably,
many family had finished its celebration on last Saturday or Sunday.

I had to be in bed for full two days.
Today, I finally became able to get up for some time.
Then I went out to have a breakfast at a cafe both for refresh and rehabilitation.

My family took me out because I could not drive by myself.

We went to a cafe which seemed to be loved by local people.

Their coffee was 380 yen with free breakfast.
It was toast, boiled egg, and one dish that probably changed every day.
The white ball dumplings were hot and soft and chewy.
Full of happy taste!!

And the reason for the plenty of ogura, there was a ogura in pot on the table.
So, I could put it as much as I could!
It really was a nice cafe for ogura lovers!!

Furthermore, like other traditional cafe,
umekobucha was served after the breakfast.

Thanks for the lovely breakfast!
I was feeling depressed, but it really comforted me.
