Parasols and a big fan…


I’ve gone back to the Japanese Chiyogami papers for this one. This paper makes me think of elegant geishas teetering along the street carrying their parasols daintily over their heads. I loved the book ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ by Arthur Golden, I have read it several times including trying to read it in French when I was being serious about learning French. Needless to say I didn’t manage to finish it and reverted to the English version eventually.


I also loved the film even though it got mixed reviews. It might be that I have a serious crush on Ken Watanabe or it might just be that it is a very good film. I couldn’t possibly say…


No, that’s not a very good photo of him but it does have a parasol and a geisha in it so let’s try again.


That’s better. And while we’re at it let’s have a gratuitous George Clooney shot to really cheer us ladies up….


I’m feeling much cheerier now!
