It’s almost February already but I’m not getting tired of reminding everybody that 2011 is the year of the rabbit. Probably I wouldn’t have known myself if Tokyo in December had not been full of rabbits. We went to that kimono fabric store, where they had the most fantastic hand-painted fabrics. I almost fainted – they were that beautiful! I had to buy something – anything – so I chose this cute chain full of little handmade charms, including a little rabbit. It now hangs in our dining room window, and I feel really bad about it, because it was supposed to be a present – and I kept it. Hope this doesn’t mean bad karma. However, I have the feeling that the chain radiates good energy – not sure, if it’s enough energy for Alex and me, but definitely for our cats, who are crazy for it.
