I am a handcraft maniac. I am felling in love with needle felting, beading, photography, drawing, clay pastries and miniature making.

Fairy garden making

This is a new mini fairy garden I made recently. It's construction is very simple, mainly using 4 pieces of wood and lot's of moss and flowers.

This fairy garden serves as a backdrop for displaying my needle felted birds and animals.


 Needle felted animals and birds are available in www.nozomicrafts.etsy.com

Wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park 足利フラワーパーク, Japan

 Ashikaga Flower Park is very large and beautiful flower garden in Japan. Different kinds of flowers bloom throughout the year. 
Wisteria is the main flower during April and May. 
There are mainly 4 kinds of wisteria in the park, the pink color ones blooms first, followed by purple, then yellow and white.
During my visit the pink color wisterias were still not in the peak season, but they still looked pretty. Can't imagine how beautiful it would be in their peak.

Japanese castles with cherry blossoms

Castles look more beautiful with cherry blossoms around. The castles I visited last week in Japan all are surrounded with cherry blossom trees, they all look amazingly beautiful.
