Every craft room needs a stash of washi tape, the paper tape wonder from Japan. Then you need a place to stash your stash. I remembered I had this little cabinet tucked away in my closet, it would be perfect with a new coat of pink paint.
I removed the door and gave that tired blue cabinet a coat of pink Anne Sloan paint. The pink version is an improvement don't you think?
The camera is a tape dispenser that I found at Anthropolgie.
My growing collection of washi tape, not surprising there is a lot of pink.
This colorful little chick fits right in.

Andrea gave me this box of washi tape, I think she got it from the Japanese bookstore, Kino Kuniya, in NYC. This bookstore is a favorite spot to visit when I'm visiting Andrea in New York City. One time when the Cottage Guy (my hubby) was with me I said I wanted to stop in Kino's. Great we both love bookstores, off we went to explore, I when down to the craft section. He came to find me about 5 minutes later, saying did you know all the books are in Japanese?!?! Yes I knew that, the craft books are really well illustrated. I admit I have bead books in Japanese, Korean and Russian.
I'm going on a short trip to visit Andrea later this week, I can't wait!! I hope to visit the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens this trip but not on a Monday, as I found out last time, they are closed on Mondays. Hopefully I'll get some great photos to share!
A special thanks to Nita at Mod Vintage Life for featuring Andrea's post on her succulents at her party Mod Mix Monday.
