Behind that very long name is a beautiful Japanese lunch set that “releases the soft scent of spring” into the air upon being opened. I’d love to have one, but they’re only sold in Tokyo, and only until the end of April.
My friend who hides behind the name pumpkineyes is holding a contest entitled Songs About Books. Strangely enough, no songs are required for entry. Just think of a book you would like to write, if time and life permitted, and send her the title and the first 100-200 words (which you unfortunately do have to write). Some nice handmade gifts will go to the best 5 entries. You have until Tuesday the 4th of April!
