I got a few more Japanese craft books last month and finally found some time to scan in some of the pages up on my Flickr. This one is my favorite called "Bonjour! Paris" (ISBN4-08-102061-2) I wish I had it the last winter when I was in Paris so I could actually find some of the great fabric or craft stores that are featured in here (not to mention cute patisseries and restaurants). These books always have a crafty/stylish lady with her petite fille roaming around doing fun things and all happy la-la.
[Je pose une question pour mes amies françaises - Comment dites-vous "crafts" en français? La création? Ma professeur du français a dit "l'artisan ou l'artisanat" , mais elle ne pas sur. merci!]

I love the interior of this shop. If only there was a cute place like this nearby I can shop at. sigh....
This shop Ultramod looks like it has some great notions like vintage buttons or something.

Every Japanese woman must have a french country kitchen I gather from all of these craft books.
Here's the rest of the new Japanese craft books I got....
