Welcome to our bedroom [Jun. 22nd, 2008|11:37 pm]

Today Don and I decided to move our bed from one wall to the other. Because our bed is so large, relative to the rest of the room, we had to take it apart ~ and each piece is very heavy. A while ago, we bought shelves for candles, but realized that if we put those shelves above our bed, cats would jump from the bed to the shelves, and set the house on fire.

So today, we moved the bed across the room, and then mounted candle shelves on the wall where the bed was. Cats supervised.

Ah, sorry. I thought that was directed at me.

*giggle* I saw I had NINE comments about our bed, and thought, who knew people were so interested in our bed? But five of the comments are you two! I don't mind... I love it when people have conversations in my comments. =)

It's actually a scarf that we had framed. The creature is a Daruma, and it's Japanese. They're usually made of wood (maybe they can be ceramic, too?) and come with hollow, empty eyes. You get one when you have a goal or some kind of personal challenge, and you color in one eye and put it up on display in your house. When you reach your goal, you get to color in the other eye.

They're always sort of egg shaped, always have the crazy eyebrows and 'stache, and always have those strips on their bellies. Sometimes they have the Chinese character for "good fortune" on their bellies, too.

And yeah, I love that particular picture of Tortoise!

I looked at it and said to myself 'that looks like a Darumma doll'. I'm stunned I was right.

I'm not surprised! You're right a lot!

Oh, and you asked where it's from ~ specifically, it's from the Tokyu Hands department store in Sannomiya, Kobe. It cost around a thousand yen.
