Tennyo

Tennyo

Before Geisha there was Oiran. These educated Japanese courtesans, were entertainers using fine art, poetry, musical talents and other sort after skills. Summoned only by formal invitation and surrounded by strict rules of conduct, the Oirans paraded and entertained during the Edo period. Unlike the Geisha, the Oiran was mostly unseen by casual visitors, their street precessions in closed areas were shut off from the public eye. As depicted by Anna Tsuchiya's character in Sakuran, layers of color and elegance clad the courtesan's body. During the Oiran era the costumes became increasingly ornate and hairstyles (yokohyougo) complex. This exquisite piece of Japanese art by Eshimasa immortalizes the grace and beauty of the Oiran. It captures the alluring refinement of the elusive entertainers. This giclee piece is called Tennyo (angel) because of the captivating angel in traditional Japanese tattoo style on the Oiran's back.

But at a price that would make you hope she'll use it when it comes time for a wedding gown, too..... from the site: Every girl dreams of being a fashion designer. Now she can actually design her own clothes. It all begins with the Designer?s Portfolio, which includes everything a young designer needs to begin the process, including fabric swatches, pencils, sketchpad, and a questionnaire for her and her parents to capture the details. She will choose from swatches of organza, taffeta, charmeuse, chiffon, and other fabrics to decide on her ideal material. Next she will create her design, then collaborate with a professional New York City fashion designer, who will translate her vision into a one-of-a-kind garment. They will consult on color, fabric, and fit to ensure a perfect rendering of your child?s dream design. For the finishing touch, a custom label, named and designed by the young designer, will be hand-sewn into her one-of-a-kind garment. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery of the Designer?s Portfolio. Allow 8 weeks from the time you approve your design for delivery of garment.

Maybe it's because my daughters have always been mad about fairies, thus making "tiny little things" high on the favorites list. Or maybe it's because I would have absolutely LOVED to receive something so unusual in the mail when I was growing up... Whatever the case, check out the amazing things you can send courtesy of Leafcutter Designs. I'm thinking a letter from an elf is in our future at my house... from the site: World's Smallest Postal Service The World's Smallest Postal Service is a teeny tiny letter transcription service. It sets up shop in cafes and stores, and is now available online. Here's how it works: You write a letter (up to 6 sentences - see below) and I rewrite it onto tiny stationary (1 x 1.5 inches) with my microscopic ink pen. It then goes into a tiny envelope which gets addressed, stamped, and sealed with a tiny wax seal with your initial on it. The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a large "World's Smallest Letter" wax seal. I can send your letter directly to a recipient of your choice, or to you if you would like to distribute it yourself. (PS: The more letters you buy, the less expensive each additional letter is because the shipping charge remains the same for the whole batch.)

  • Is this cute?? Makes me cool just thinking of snow!!
