Steampunk-Style-Vol 2

We met on Twitter and have become good friends as we both like the same things.

We both like steampunk and to dress up. I liked Mari’s costume of Commander Franky Cook,


from the film, ‘Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.’



We have so much in common. We are both Tom Boys. We can both ride motorbikes and fly.

Mari has taught me many words in

Which I had been getting wrong before. My favourites are

スチームパンク Steampunk
友達 Friend
Beautiful! 美しい! I love it!大好き!

I have to use google translate to change English words into Japanese, and it is not always very good. Every day I learn something new and interesting from Mari’s blog.

And she told me about twitter logs, here is hers
and here is mine

Mari kindly sent me some of her books and also my name. i was very excited as when the package came it had many beautiful stamps on it. I saved the stamps to show my daughter Emily when she came back from university and then I stuck them around the image.
Marie Gave me a copy of her new sewing book. I have not made anything from it yet, but I Love the style
