Although I've been out of school for quite some years now, I still just love shopping for school supplies! As a writer I'm always loading up on pens and pencils, journals of every shape and size, and notebooks for a variety of purposes. This year, I realized some of my best "school supplies" were all gifts from tea friend Lani in Hawaii.
This set of erasers includes, clockwise from top, sweet rice cakes and red bean jam wrapped in oak leaves, sweet rice cakes on bamboo sticks, sweet rice cakes wrapped in cherry blossom leaves, green tea, and little cakes filled with red bean jam. What an elaborate set of erasers!
There are also cute little teacups ...
... and a teapot and teacup set. I must confess, though, that I enjoy looking at them too much to actually use these erasers. Would you?
