Memories from Japan. 冬の日本

Japan was for many years a country of dreams and inspiration, until, two years ago in January ... Elsa's papa was sent to work in japan for some weeks. Elsa and I followed. 
She was about to turn 5 at the time, curious and enthousiastic, she immensely enjoyed it... the hot springs and many temples specially, and to our surprise - she who had never been much interested in food - raw fish and dry squid!
1. Elsa's watercolour inspired by camelia, then  in bloom in Tokyo. 2-4. Nikko. 5. Tokyo bay. 6. one of my old painting, now in Elsa's room.

One year

It's been a year since I open "bateaux de papier". One year. I don't know what I was expecting at the time - I was merely led by my interest and admiration for a few blogs I had started following - but I wasn't expecting how much joy, meaning and frienship it it will bring in my life. I have made new friends here, now very dear to me. Thank you, all of you, for being there, for sharing so much, this is precious.
