Happy 2019 everyone!
|Selfie with coat and scarf.|
The obi shows bamboo and a bit of plum for the New Year!
The plum was also in the lining of my coat,
and unfortunately I had no pine to fully
represent Sho Chiku Bai, the Three Friends of Winter.
|Showing off my new "wild mushroom" obiage!|
|Here is my missing pine! This is the paper used|
to serve the wagashi or sweets with the tea.
Pine needle motifs are subtly embedded in the paper, in
addition to an origami crane.
