Waiting, A Tunic and The Japan Post Office

I love shopping at Etsy. I usually buy handmade soap and lotion, but recently I bought a handmade tunic from India. It arrived on April 7, but I was taking a nap so I didn't hear the doorbell. I am not sure how it works in other countries, but in Japan, the postal worker leaves a card with details about your package and a telephone number to call for re-delivery. I called the 24 hour automated hotline and rescheduled the delivery for April 9th, between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. This week's shadow shot is of the envelope and tag that the post office added for the redelivery. The red kanji-chinese characters say "afternoon."

By the way, I am in love with the tunic! The cotton material and embroidered design are beautiful.

Shadow Shot Sunday is hosted by Hey Harriet. Visit her blog for more shadow shots.

I would love to visit the isle of Japan some day, the art and the customs have always been a fascination to me.

Have a wonderful Easter Sunday...

I love the envelope it is a little work of art. The envelopes that come to my house are much more boring and pedestrian. And yes I am going right now to check out that tunic. We are a nosy bunch aren't we!

BLOGitse said...

i can imagine you wearing that tunic...
next time you can post a photo of you having it on! :)
Like above, we're nosy!

Unusual place to find an interesting shadow! Great idea!

Subtle shadow. Works for me!

This is a great shot...I love that the shadow is only incidental. I really like 'found art' and this is a great example!

Hey Harriet said...

Lovely subtle shadows and what a beautiful tunic. I agree with BLOGitse about you posting a pic of you wearing it!

I like the way your postal system works. Over here if they deliver a package when not home they leave a card instucting us to collect it from the Post Office. I'd prefer to have the re-delivery option! We're a lazy bunch over here ;)

Cool tunic and neat shadow shot. I love the writing...very exotic to me. Much more artistic looking than our letters.

Very pretty - you could almost frame it for some artwork couldn't you? Don't you just love finding fun things on Etsy? This tunic is so pretty - love the colors & patterns on the neck & bottom!
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
