Kawaii :
1) A Japanese word meaning cute.

Since the 1970s, cuteness (, kawaisa?) has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behavior, and mannerisms
Cute merchandise is extremely popular in Japan.

Truth is I can't get enough of Kawaii Cards.

let's have some fun! A small contest!
The 8th envelope that reaches me will
get their return envie
stuffed with kawaii goodies-ribbons, bookmarks, stickers, stamped images,note, mini envelopes...

The 1st & last envelope that reaches me will be given with an extra atc.
I'm not hurrying anyone but just to add some excitement into this. Remember overseas mail is unpredictable. It could take as short as 3days to perhaps 2weeks. So everyone has a chance.

Fingers-
You probably have more access to HK and Badtz maru stuff than we do in the States. I love the stuff you can get in Asia. I got a beautiful HK purse made from silk online, and it was so expensive!

let's talk kawaii.
Recently, i saw kawaii wooden toys in singapore and they are from Decole!!
They had wooden mounted stamp sets of little red riding hood and three little pigs.
Heart melts.
My best friend protested cuz they're a tad too expensive for small stamps.
Probably I'll figure out how to order from decole.jp or wait for a sale at that toy shop.

malinmaskros
08-23-2008, 05:34 AM
Decole is sooo cute!

fingers
08-23-2008, 01:13 PM
yup!Love their colours and designs.
decole's stamps are so cute,
but the whole website is in Japanese.
I would need help from my cousin to read and order from them.
