Spotted! Just the most amazing little Kokeshi thing…


That, ladies and gentlemen, is a Kokeshi Doll.

Considered in their native Japan to be gifts of love and affection. First made about 150 years ago as a toy for children of farmers, Kokeshi are made by skilled craftsmen, and each is named.

This little one’s name?

Oh, did I not say?

She’s called “Happiness”.


Available for less than £15 of your pounds from my swish new find Sorella. I’d really like one for my desk very eversomuch thankyouplease.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
