japanese masking tapes.

while i was in japan, i saw these colorful masking tapes, and i loved them.
so i had to get them all color! so pretty!
they are made with washi(japanese paper), very thin paper tape.
i found out that you can get these tapes in here and some of etsy shop. ( here and here )

and i wanted have tape dispenser just for these tapes.
where to look? etsy! i found a great wood shop "Banished wood working" , scott who makes cool wood toys custom made these tape dispensers for me!
i just received these tape dispensers yesterday and i'm very happy with it.
if you need one of these you should convo him! i asked him longer length but he will custom make any size for very reasonable price.
this is what i like about etsy, all the talented people from all over the world.

anyway, i just wanted to show off my new tape dispenser and tapes. haha

the visitor.

"thanks for the food!"
"yum yum"
"this is my home!"
it has been great weather in chicago.
the other day i was open my window and doors to get fresh air. while my cat niko was out enjoying outside, other cat visit my place and ate niko's food!
she was walking around my apt, checking bathroom and everything.
there are 4-5 cats living backyard of my apt, but niko doesnt really like to socialize them so it was good niko wasnt home.
