This is a beautiful girl’s hemp kimono with hand painted motifs of crane and pine. For the Japanese, the crane–or tsuru–is considered a national treasure, appearing in art, literature and folklore. The crane is regarded as a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled life span of one thousand years. Similarly, the pine is associated with virtue, a motif of winter and New Year, and as a symbol of long life. It stands to reason that these symbols would be incorporated into a child’s kimono, wishing the wearer good fortune and a long life. The garment is in very good condition, with only slight discolorations which are visible in the closeup photos. This girl’s kimono can be dated to the 1920s.

Dimensions: 38 ¼ x 38 ½"

I rarely draw Tanuth with Orime, who’s sort of his little buddy/snarky familiar spirit, so I decided to remedy this. 

You can usually find these two taking long hikes along Gairain’s game trails. She chills out in Tanuth’s back feathers most of the time when he’s in this form and will occasionally clamber up his neck to stare down from his head at people when they encounter them. She prefers to hide the majority of the time, however.

The most likely scenario here: she was perched on his snout while chatting with him when he got excited about something and glanced up to exclaim his excitement, only to send her flying. She puts up with so much of his shit is2g

un lugar mejor

Puedes oírme dime que tan solo duerme , dame la oportunidad y abrir tus ojos una vez mas hermosas palabras que intento decirte ,  vuelve veneno en mi garganta al no poder expresartelas… Poder expresartelas

Puedes oírme dime que son solo un sueño pude vernos corriendo
Un juro atardecer uso recuerdos colgados en mi pared te has ido lejos y se que no volverás a este lugar ninguna melodía es suficiente para hacerte saber lo mucho que lamento el final

Aun estas a salvo en mi mente y aquí te quedaras despierto para siempre se que el tiempo me llevara a un lugar mejor juntos eternamente

Cuando todo se termine el amor arrancara el dolor cuando todo se termine 
cuando todo termine tan solo es el comienzo!!!!…..
