I had seen a Shinzi Katoh box that had bunnies riding in a car, and I thought How Cute! So I started hunting around for anything of his and found the very current Miss Alice and the grumpy Queen.
(I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will soon.)
They are really quite charming and the lids snap firmly into place. I don't think they are microwaveable, but that doesn't matter since I don't nuke any of my bento boxes.
They do need a bag however. They only nest when they're empty. And I saw some Alice in Wonderland fabric at my local sewing shop the other day, but I would loathe to battle the traffic this weekend as we are in the middle of yet another wine celebration, the Zin Fest.
For those of you that don't know - I live in the Central Coast region of California and vineyards have taken over. Every direction I look grapes are growing. What use to be cattle and hay fields, now cab, zin, syrah, etc.
So wineries throw festivals and everyone (in the world) comes here and gets drunk. (And the coppers make some dough too.)
I wait till they all go home.
Not that I have anything against wine. I am enjoying a glass of 2003 Brunello di Montalcino this very moment while I cook up my pizza. ( Guess I'll blog about that over on Foodie. )
Look what else I found at JFlair! Due Mugs! by Shinzi Katoh. Tea kept warm with dish for snack. Love the birdie on the branch!
