Beautiful Dainty Floral Kitchen Homewares from Ceramic Ai

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

I’m always on the lookout for pretty things
to bring into the home – especially soft and delicate
floral patterns!

There is something delightfully princessy about these
sweet and soft watercolor-like flowers
on these coffee, tea, and other kitchen supplies
by Ceramic Ai~

Hana Tsumi Mino Ware Chazuke Bowl Set

I’m glad there is a description for this on the product page –
chazuke is a Japanese dish that involves pouring tea
over rice, but this bowl set could be used for anything
and also comes with a pretty pink napkin!

Hana Zukushi Mino Ware Glass Dessert Bowl Set

When I see this precious dessert bowl set,
I am already fantasizing about eating ice cream
from those beautiful bowls!

Hana Kobo Coffee Dripper

Okay, I’m not familiar enough with coffee drinking
to know the purpose of this coffee dripper. nn;
I seriously just picked it to show off because
I love the soft purple watercolor flowers!
If you’re a coffee drinker, I’m sure you can appreciate it
much more than I can. :D

Hanawa Mino Ware Earthenware Teapot Set

I cannot believe the price available for this
for a full set of traditional-style teapot and two
bowl-style teacups!!! (/*o*\)

Hana Gasane Mino Ware Small Plate Gift Set

Of course, finishing off your tea set with
several matching plates makes for the most striking statement
when you are entertaining guests!!
…Or just enjoying tea for yourself at home. nn

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Having little things in your living space that are cute will make you smile every time you use them!  Filling your lifestyle with these small happinesses will begin to positively impact your mood.  And yes, even small, unimportant items around your house or apartment like these can contribute to that difference.  Cuteness is that powerful!

Bow-Accent Ruffled Switch Cover

The square cutout at the center of this is sized for Japanese lightswitch plates,
so this may not fit over a vertically rectangular lightswitch, but alternatively
it could be hung over a hook or other small feature on the wall!
This comes in a few polka-dotted colors –
the brown one makes the cute bears look extra chocolatey!

Kitty Cat Hanging Pocket

Omg these cute kitties!!
These look super convenient for tossing things into
when you come in the door, etc etc~
The fabric that the kitties are printed onto,
and the wooden dowel that they hang from
give this a cottage-y, vintage-y look!

tape measures come in!!

Every time I see these chimes in anime, I think they are so simple and elegant!

Cute Bunny Incense Holder

Incense holders are not complicated tools – you only need that little hole
at the top to place your incense stick in, so the base can really
be shaped or painted like anything~
These tiny bunnies are so simply sweet, they are a subtle way
to add cuteness to your incense enjoying. c:

Cute & Convenient Homey Items

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

I’m a firm believer in the concept of a “kawaii lifestyle” – that even mediocre tasks you do and that mundane homeware items around your living space can be made cute, even if for no other reason than to make you smile as you go through the day.  It’s not even as if it’s expensive to infuse cuteness into your everyday life – here are five saccharine items to affordably indulge in to sweeten your life.

Sweet Bunny or Bear Cushion (2 Styles)

I am pretty much always in need of a lumbar cushion,
