my neighbour totoro


I've always been a fan of Miyazaki's movies, my favorites being Nausicaa and probably Castle in the sky. But I've always had a special fondness for Totoro as well, so when my friend B. went to Japan on vacation this summer I couldn't resist asking him to bring me a plushed version. He was lucky enough to go visit the Studio Ghibli Museum and it seems the souvenir shop was irresistible.

He also got me a copy of the latest edition of Cotton Time, which of course is full of amazing crafty ideas. We had a rushed lunch the other day where he told me the highlights of his trip (I., já tenho montes de dicas para quando te formos visitar) and now I want to go visit Japan even more badly (ha, as if I needed more incentive). Thanks, B., I love my Totoro :)
