Day #5. Notes from the future. My Japan diary. 11/16/15

Hand crafted Temari

Hand crafted Temari

This morning we flew to Fukuoka for the fourth day of trunk shows at Strasburgo stores. The day was filled with the joy of seeing friends, and the laughter and good vibes we always share together.  Oh yeah, and we sold some jewelry too!  I received the most beautiful Temari from my friend Yoko Nakamatsu.  Temari’s are highly cherished gifts as they symbolize friendship and loyalty. They are intricately crafted, and are visually stunning and colorful.  I was very moved by Yoko’s kindness and generosity. She was quite happy that I finally started using diamonds as it turns out it’s her birthstone. All that was missing was Marylin Monroe signing “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” 

Until tomorrow,
