espresso: (sensei (食事))
I love coffee, and I think I have good coffee karma: every time I've stocked up on new bags, that's when somebody sends me a lot more coffee. At the moment there are around six bags of beans waiting to be brewed! It's such an overwhelming, happy thing.

This made me very very very happy today.
I didn't think it was possible to love him more than I already do!
He looks like he's wearing a dress, but this is actually just the top. His legs were too stubby for the trousers.

Today I got these in the mail. I'll be getting literally cartons of eggs in a few months, but now I think I can do with these just fine. There is also one small bottle of vanilla extract that I forgot to add. The whisk is a good choice, but I also got an electric handheld mixer just in case.

Actually I think I have everything covered except that I don't have an oven.

There have been quite a lot of additions to the stash, mostly outdoorsy stuff. I've been hunting for green felt for a backdrop but couldn't find a nice shade to work with.

My first complete set! I got it at 40% off.

Unfortunately I'll have to review this tomorrow instead.

I saw some small metal bars for scrapbooking on sale, and used some for wall-mounted holders. I wanted to hang more cups, but I realized I already sold my cup set, and the ones I have left don't have open handles. Sigh. I'm also thinking of using the bars to hold up some shelves.

I got him a wall clock. You have to look at it closely to see it's a Hello Kitty vintage clock. It's from the Sanrio Vintage Mini 3 series.
There's also a Tuxedo Sam electric fan which is huge but cute. I'm saving it for summer.

If Wikipedia's to be trusted, today is Itoshiki Nozomu's birthday. It also happens to be my birthday as well, which gives me -- or us? -- a very good reason to crack open a box from Re-Ment's Mini Sweets series.

The second floor doesn't look too stable, but I kind of like this layout. You can actually stick a light up that ceiling. Hmmmm.

This one's more coherent, I think.
I'm focusing on the living room part this time. It has a lot of potential.

The furniture finally arrived.
Major scale discrepancy problems, but it doesn't look bad if you choose the pieces.

I thought I could make half a room work, but it looks like I need to get the other half.

a.k.a. the kitchen rack and mug set that narrowly escaped the Bermuda Triangle.

I absolutely refuse to believe that this is lost in the mail. I went over the particulars and apparently, I should be getting it this week or the next. If it doesn't show up next month, however, I'm doomed. And for all the griping I'm doing about it, I sure am reckless enough to get

I'm trying to switch for the set with blue cushions, to match the violet one I already have. [edit] Blue cushions set get.

In the event that all these arrive -- and by all means, they should -- I might have to do a bit of furniture selling. There's no way I can fit three tables in that room plus a sewing machine, which I don't really need. The same seller put another version of the same set, this time with a telephone. What. How many versions of this old set do they have anyway? I'm starting to doubt if I purchased an original or not, and frankly I don't even care; I just want things to get to me when they should.

I'm talking to you, kitchen rack and mugset in limbo.
