Happy times

How could these smiley-face sponges (from a 100 yen store in Osaka) not make doing the washing up a more pleasurable experience?

Mood cookies

These cookies are from Alex & Michael, Daimaru department store, Shinsaibashi. They are ‘mood cookies’. They say on the pack: “How are you feeling today – happy, sad or angry?” Just turn the cookie upside down to make a sad/angry face.

Addicted to… LOFT!

These mugs from LOFT say “Way to go!”, “What’s up!” and “So happy”. Animal cutting boards. The amazing, so-strong-they-never-need-sharpening ceramic knives! ‘Coloured-pencil’ chopsticks! Cow saucepan (from the makers of the Frying Pan-da). The homewares level of LOFT is one of the cutest places on earth.

Snack happy

Smiley-face ‘sable’ cookies by Morinaga. Sable is a French butter cookie made with flour, sugar, butter and hard-boiled egg yolks. They are famously crumbly, which is how they got their name – sable is French for ‘sand’.
