I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been craving sushi for the last few days… or because I have been watching martial art movies, but in any event, I think I’m gonna start out this week with a little of the Far East in it…
Oragami (pronounced or-i-GA-me) is the Japanese art of paper folding. “Ori” os the Jaanese word for folding and “kami” is the Japanese word for paper. That is how origami got it’s name. However, origami did not start in Japan. It got it’s beginnings in China in the first or second century and then spread to Japan sometime during the sixth century.
These Origami inspired handbags show just how far the influence of “simple” paper folding has come…
Each Origami inspired piece by Katie Sylvester in the Sylka line- whether it is a handbag, clutch or purse- has been constructed from a single piece of leather or fabric- just like traditional origami. Prices range from the very affordable $25-$250….
Of course, if you are looking for an INDULGENT sort of piece...
Chloe has released this origami inspired handbag with a $650.00 price tag attatched.. making it a wrap around so that is easier to hold... well done!
For a little bit of a FUN... why not grab a FORTUNE COOKIE SCARF!!!
These Fortune Cookie scarves by Xenotees are the second best thing to ever come from a fortune cookie... the first being the fortune i received one time that was BLANK!! lol
These Xenotees fortune cookie scarves will warm your heart in addition to warming your neck with their uplifting predictions and statements. If the Cookie says it... you know it MUST be true!!
These scarves are a "LUCKY" find on etsy .... and can be procured for less than $5.00 including shipping!! now if THAT's not a lucky find.. i just don't know what is!
So NOW let see what happens when we cross the far east with Twitter LOL... serious.
Ahhhhh Yes, the fortune cookie with real life tweets inside.. say Swear!!!
These little gems taste and feel like a real fortune cookie.. but on the inside lurks something a little different. Instead of finding an old school fortune... you will find an actual tweet from an actual twitter user. So if your tweets are witty and what knot.. you very well might open up a cookie and find you are the author of your OWN fortune....
Twitter user Neven Mrgan is the mastermind behind this soon to be legendary snack, and will be rollin them out to retailers sometime this fall... although..the Twitter offices have maintained that they already have a version of these little morsels chillen at Twitter HQ..
