#926 I like small things 〜a haniwa couple〜
I like small things ever since I was a child.
I realized I bought three small things last month.
One was a tiny haniwa.
A haniwa is a traditional Japanese cray figure. The one I bought was only about the size of the first point of my index finger. I met it at a small gallery in Osaka on the hottest day of this summer. The figure was holding a book and it looked so cute. I had a crush on it.
The second item were a vintage mini cup and saucer from England.
When I went to an antique shop in Chiba. I bought it as a souvenir.

↑This is the antique shop, “Sakura Manor House“.
The last one was also a small haniwa doll which was sold in a museum shop in Chiba.
I bought it for the book-holding haniwa. I wanted to make a haniwa couple. I’m very satisfied with making a couple even though they were born far away from each other.
↑They are only about the size of the first point of my index finger.
↑I found the haniwa girl at “National museum of Japanese History“.
It may sound silly to some people, but I don’t know why I am sometimes obsessed with small things even though I understand that they are useless. However I can feel a peace of mind when I am just watching them.
