可愛すぎる! Too Cute!!

去年の秋、ふらりと行ったアートフェスティバル。特に面白いものはないな〜と思っていたら、カラフルなブースが目について、ついつい引き寄せられました。テントのブースの壁一面に飾られているのが、小さな人形達。プリンセスや動物やお花などがあって、「かわいい〜!!」よく見るとヘアピンになっていて、なんと全てリボンでできているではありませんか!いろいろな幅の色とりどりのリボンを使って、見事に仕上げてあって感動ものです。

ブースにいたお姉さんに、どこかにお店を構えているのか、ウェブサイトを持っているか聞いたら、答えはどちらもノー。今は子育てで忙しいから、いつどこでまた出店するかわからないと。。。う〜ん、今しかチャンスがない!3つ買うと4つ目はただだよって言われ、迷いに迷って4つを選びました。「ひゃ〜、嬉しいぃ〜。」

「はて、でも買ったはいいけど、どうするよ。。」舞姫はヘアピン嫌いだし、いくらなんでも幼すぎるか。周りに小さい女の子はいないかな〜。あ、一人いた。U家のMちゃんです。翌日maido家の人たちと会う予定だったので、早速一つあげました。よく似合ってます。でもこうすると本人に見えないのが難点かも(^ ^;)。あとでmaidoさんがバッグにつけて、Mちゃんが楽しめるようにしてくれました。

さて、他に誰がいるかなぁ? 夏に五島列島で会った親戚の女の子の顔が浮かんできました。と思ったら、東京の友人にも小さな女の子がいる!と次々に思いつき、二つが海を越えて旅立っていきました。最後の一つは、、、? まだ私が持っています。誰の手元に届くでしょうか。(^o^)/

On an autumn day last year, we strolled into a local art festival. I was thinking there was nothing exciting to see until a colorful booth caught my eyes. The next moment, I was there, fascinated with the small dolls displayed all over the wall of the booth. Princesses, animals, flowers, etc. "So cute!!!" I was so amazed to find that they were actually hair clips made of ribbon. They were made with ribbon pieces of different colors and different widths, they were so beautifully and finely done.

I asked the person at the booth if she had a permanent shop somewhere or an online store. The answer was no. She said she had her hands full raising her kids. When and where she would have the booth again was unknown. Now was the only chance to get them! She was offering a "buy three and get one free" deal. After taking so much time, I finally picked four. "Yay!! I got them. I got them!!"

"But wait. What am I going to do with them?" My dancing princess hates wearing hair clips. She was too grown up anyway. "Are there any young girls around me? Oh, there is one! M-chan, maido-san's daughter!!" We were going to see them the following day and I gave one to her. "Looking good!!" However, the trouble was that M-chan couldn't see it. (^ ^;). Later, maido-san put it on a bag so that M-chan could enjoy seeing it.

"Well, who else?" The face of a little girl came up in my mind, one of the relatives I met in Goto Islands last summer. Then, I immediately remembered the daughter of one of my friends in Tokyo. Hence, two clips took off on a journey over the ocean. And the last one...? It's still here. Let's see who will get it.(^o^)/
