A Splendid New Year
For whatever reason I am not sure but almost every greetings, since the first I sent to friends and business associates this year-end, for Xmas and for the coming new year, I would wished for them to have A Splendid New Year. "Splendid", simply defined would mean excellent, illustrious, impressive, good, grand... all the beautiful and positive thoughts that flow through my mind on saying this word.
Hence I am wishing everyone here the same, A Splendid New Year!
Now back on my post. What you see is a mixture of old and new. Some very old, like the door knockers on the wall and the coins on the shelf, what you might say as vintage. And since they are not anime related, they would be considered irrelevant on this site. The new ones that you see are my Christmas presents. I bought most of them, over the course of the last 12 months, only unboxed recently . My children gave me the Hario coffee maker and grinder, and also the coffee powder. I love coffee and coffee accessories. To some, they are just appliances but to me they are works of Art. I had them and the figurines spread out for the camera, on the new counter added recently into the Studio. The 2 ladies bust however, would be there for a while, kinda like a permanent display. I have most of my collection kept or displayed in the studio. I could not leave them at home because of "Global Warming"...the heat would ruin some of them if not all. I did not stop collecting figurines after I turned 50 ( I am hitting 52 in a couple of months ), besides also collecting old and used ( pre-owned / pre-loved ) stuffs. In addition to those you see in this and previous post, there are still others. Many are in their original packaging. Some are not even out of the carton boxes they arrived in. A number of the newer ones are preordered and will only arrive in the next few months...
Finally completed this "green" wall. It's made up of individual 250 x 250 mm size plastic leafy tiles. Discovered also a new tackless way to display notes and cards on the wall. These are held in place by some form of friction-grip, when the cards are placed between the leaves.
