I'm not REALLY into "cute" all that much, but I LOVE HELLO KITTY! The reason is, she was my first inspiration to start writing letters. I grew up in the 70's and pen palling was a big thing (Hell....no computers or cell phones back then). Plus my Grandmother was (and still is) a HUGE letter sender, so she was always keeping me supplied with stationary and stamps. Hello Kitty products back in those days was all about stationary etc. I couldn't get enough.
Today you can find Miss Kitty just about everywhere. I love the little mini postcard packs that you can collect. The books I found at the thrift store for my daughter (we share them...LOL).
This is all that is left of my childhood collection (from 1976). Thanks HELLO KITTY- for fueling my passion.
