I just used the search thingie on my site and it turns out I haven't mentioned Daiso. Which surprised me because I love Daiso! What's Daiso you ask? The best quick description I can give is "the japanese everything is $1.50 store". So not EVERY item is that cheap, but the completely awesome salt and pepper shakers in the photo above? $1.50 each. There was no possible way I was leaving the store without them. I bought a toothpick holder too. Because I totally needed one. Shaped like a cat.
So yeah, Daiso? Totally awesome.
