Sakae: creates Exquisite Japanese Floral  Hairpins 

on Facebook, Flickr

These transparent ornament hairpins, which Sakae makes, have a beauty that catches your breath.

Sakae started to make Kanzashi (Japanese Hair Pins) about 7 years ago.  She was inspired when she saw a girl dressed in a gorgeous long-sleeve kimono.  Sakae thought to herself “If her hair had a transparent butterfly decoration, her look would be perfect…. Why has she not put one on?”  Then, she began to look for a butterfly hair pins at stores.

"It was my good luck, during that wonderful summer in Rome, to be the first of her screen fellows, to hold out my hand, and help her keep her balance as she did her spins and pirouettes. Those months were probably the happiest experience I ever had making movies… she made everybody in the world fall in love with her."

Studio Ghibli | 1985 - 2014

After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet. Studio Ghibli is no longer producing animated films. So here’s to you, Ghibli, and everything you’ve given us.
