WOYWW – Hello Kitty!

Hello Kitty Tins

Happy WOYWW, dear friends! August is upon us and it’s one of my favorite times of the year! Not only is it my birth month (I’m not sure why, but my mom keeps asking, how many times can a girl turn 25?) but it’s also the month when back to school supplies hit the marketplace in full force – which means, you can find treasures for your craft room without even trying!

Case in point: Yesterday, I am at the grocery store with my husband. I am standing in the dairy section, picking this week’s yogurt flavors. Prince Charming leaves me alone for a minute to search for some essential. I turn my head slightly and – lo and behold – something pink and pretty catches my eye!

So, I do what any normal woman with a weakness for pretty pink things would do. I drop whatever yogurt containers I’m holding in my hands at that moment into the shopping cart and I take off!

Faster than you can say “Jack Robinson”, I whirl my cart around and zoom over to see what has caught my fancy. I pull an object off the shelf. In my hands sits the cutest little lunch box you ever did see!

Hello Kitty Tin with Cupcakes

Now, I must tell you: I never understood the Hello Kitty craze. There’s a whole store of Hello Kitty stuff in our local mall that I’ve walked by time after time without batting an eyelash. But – there must have been fairy dust in the air because, at that moment – I fell in love.

Hello Kitty! I think I’m smitten!

And then – as if kittens and cupcakes and pretty pink boys weren’t enough to send me on a sugar rush – I see a second flash of pink!

I bend down and pull another tin box off the shelf.

Hello Kitty Tin with Birdie

I could hardly believe my eyes! I’d found another Hello Kitty box in a different pattern! This tin is filled with flowers and birdies and buggies and rainbows! There may be clouds in the sky but in kitty land, apparently everything is pink!

I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot!

Now, Prince Charming must be feeling mighty magnanimous that day, because he raises an eyebrow – but not a fuss – when the tins somehow find their way into our shopping cart and into our home.

Now, if you have young daughters at home, these tins would be perfect for packing their first school lunches in!

Hello Kitty Handles

In my home, however, these pretty pink kitty boxes will soon be adorning my craft room in some sweet corner and holding a bevy of trinkets and treasures that I can easily tote from place to place!

So – that’s what’s on my desk this week. What’s on yours?

    We had plenty of Hello Kitty in our house while my daughter was growing up. She liked the little bunny and the ballet stuff they used to carry. Pens, pencils, erasers, backpacks, pencil boxes – they were everywhere! Have fun organizing!
    Happy Pink Saturday!
