Happy Valentine's Day, my friends♡♡♡
It's 14th night in Japan, a bit early my Origami Giveaway winner announcing

Thank you very much for everyone who participated my Japanese Origami giveaway.  As I promised in my blog on Feb.1st ,   I chose the winner randomly with the same way my last year's calendar giveaway.  My hubby picked one of you and this time I will skip posting the pictures of process.   Without further ado;

Two PSs>
*Google Chrome Problem
It seems I had combined trouble with Google Chrome and the funny unfamiliar toolbar which I accidentally downloaded!!!  I had tried every possible procedure! Several times of installing and uninstalling without success. This evening, I finally could disappear the blank space for the toolbar, which I couldn't uninstalled perfectly from the control panel. Yay, it worked; dush board and friends' comment forms starting to appear☆☆☆   Thank God and What a relief!!!
Seeing me I had been SO upset thinking unable to contact with my friends, my hubby said "Don't you sigh many times, it is not the end of the world".  I thought, "Easy for you to say!" haha.  Anyway, I REALLY AM HAPPY being able to catching up for your posts.  

*Chocolates for my husband
I bought 2 boxes of Chocolates for hubby and he had his fair share p;)
                                                                           Love you always,  Miyako*


  1. Happy Valentines Day to you and hubby.
    Glad you have computer problem solved. Those chocolates do look good!

  2. My dear Miyako I can't tell you how pleased I am to have been picked the winner in your giveaway. I will send you an email this morning with my address. I'm happy for you your computer problems have been fixed. I had some problems last month and it was very upsetting not being able to leave comments. The chocolates you gave your hubby are the perfect ones to give the love in your life. Are those little teddy bears? They would be a hit at my house. Have a wonderful day my dear friend. xoxo

  11. Miyako, I am happy you got your computer issues solved. It's so frustrating when something goes wrong. It makes you want to undo everything you've done. I can understand about the sighing. That's what I do when I can't fix what needs to be fixed.

    Hope you have had a wonderful day.

  15. Olá, Miyako!
    Parabéns pelo seu blog, fiquei muito feliz ao visitá-lo!
    Admiro muito a cultura de seu país,e aprendi um pouco da técnica do origame em um curso que fiz aqui no Rio na embaixada do Japão. Passei a ensinar aos meus alunos e vi resultados surpreendentes.
    Grata por passar muita paz e alegria em seus posts!
