🎃Trick or Treat! 🎃

Hi everyone! 

Today is the last day of October and also Halloween! 👻🕸🎃


 Recently Halloween  in Japan become an event for young people, enjoying many costumes  and a mood of Japanese Halloween style, not scary one, mostly cartoons or Japanese game character’s costumes!  🎃🕸👻

Well, Violet didn’t wear any Halloween costumes but decorated as she does every year! And also cooked a pumpkin pie🎃! ( although I cannot eat!) 

Here is this month wreath:


And here are her paintings also the witch and cat , her handmade dolls! 🕸👻


Hope you all dear freinds have great moments in the last day of October!😻🐾

Before August ends…

Hi dear friends, 


It has been a long time again since Violet has posted anything.(Not even a photo of me!) 🐾

Well she was very busy. I know that. Last month we had a surprise. Violet’s daughter came back from the States to visit us. It was really a huge surprise!! 🙀 I will never forget Violet’s face when she opened the door and saw her. 😸 Boy how she screaaaaamed!!???? And even for a while she got so confused and was talking to me in English, Japanese, and Persian!( Although I know all of those languages!!!) 🙀😺

I was so glad to see her after 3 years, honestly I missed her caresses and rubs, playing with her, sleeping on her bed and sometimes biting her feet in the middle of the night!!…. And above all I missed her brushing my hair every morning….. 😻 

 

She has already left and gone back to the States but I’m already missing her and I can see Violet feels sad too but I’m trying my best to keep her happy. Anyway, before the end of the month I’d like to show you her August wreath and her oil painting for this month.



Have a great weekend , coming week dear friends❤️🐾❤️

Season’s Souvenir 2

Hi everyone ,

Today will continue about violet’s memories in past April!  Sakura talks again🐾🌸🐾


During Sakura season people here enjoy flowers and also special sweets in this season!  Here violet will show you some of them!

Those sweets are made by sakuras flowers and their leaves flavor,rice,sweet beans and wrapped in salted sakura’s leaves. Also using Sakura dried flowers in sweets and dried salty sakura tea that tastes really good!


Those blossoms are beautiful even when they start to falling down. It looks like the petal are dancing in the air and sometimes like snow….

In mid late of April, a new type of sakuras ,Yaezakura(means one flower consists of as many pink petals)will bloom and again another joy .


Now, there is no flowers on tress but  beautiful memories (for violet taste too!) are remain! 🐾

Time to enjoy fresh green leaves everywhere and looking forward sakuras next year…..

🌹Happy Mother’s Day🌹

Every midwife knows that not until a mother’s womb 

softens from the pain of labor 

will a way unfold 
and the infant find that opening to be born. 
Oh friend! 
There is treasure in your heart, 
it is heavy with child. 
Listen. 
All the awakened ones, 
like trusted midwives are saying, 
‘welcome this pain. 
It opens the dark passage of Grace.
Maulana Rumi


Season’s  Souvenir

Hi dear friends,

Today I would like to show you some memories from last month!

From the end of March to middle of April is cherry blossoms (Sakura) season. People enjoy Hanami( walking or having picnic under sakura’s trees).  For people in Japan sakura has a deep meaning. The flowers are not staying long but the memories of them stay forever….. Usually school graduations and start is in this period so they are a symbol for an encounter and farewell too.



Well ,I, as a home cat don’t  prefer to go outside for a walk in such crowded place so Violet draw me some sakuras and also bought a branch of them to show me how beautiful they are! Hope you enjoy too🐾


Will continue about sakuras again in next post🐾

Have a Lovely weekend dear friends!

Hi dear friends!


Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time since I posted anything. Apologies to those whose comments or private mail I haven’t answered to ask me why I’m not here ….

It has been very busy days for me and honestly I haven’t been in the mood to even draw sometimes…..

But I miss you all (better that I say we miss you all)

May 1st and I’m back blogging again. 😊

With a little more information and different subjects for posts or drawings.

First of all I would like to introduce myself a little bit more. I’m a foreigner living in Japan for many years. I’m originally from Iran. I’m a mum of two daughters and a wife of my Japanese hubby. 😁

I want to introduce Japanese or Iranian culture and food…. through my drawings and photos and of course under Malus’ management. 😁

I may not be able to post everyday but will try as often as I can.😊

Hope I can make you smile while visiting my blog. ❤️

Have a great day!

Violet & Malus
