This is how it starts...

When I was a teenager, my brother's old girlfriend bought my Mom a pair of pajamas with sheep on them for her birthday - you know, because she's a knitter. I thought it was cute so I bought Mom a stuffed sheep. Next thing you know, other people are buying Mom sheep (okay, a lot of it was me....) and about 100 sheep (and one wolf...) later, Mom had to say, STOP!.

I think I may have started the same kind of thing for myself... but with Hello Kitty. Several of my coworkers know I have a special Hello Kitty sticker on the back of my car....

And I recently needed a new purse, so I picked up this one..

...as well as smaller one for my niece's upcoming birthday, on lunch a few weeks ago. Well... it seems to have started a thing... on Friday, a coworker brought this in for me....
 She was part of a special promotion M.A.C. Cosmetics did a while back. I gotta say... I love her shoes.

And this morning when I got in, another coworker presented me with this...
Adorable! Now.. once I get that cardigan finished, I think I'll be knitting some fingerless mitts as thank-yous!

Cute HK stuff. I'm a big fan of HK. I was looking at some HK at Claire's today. But, I was good. I just looked. LOL

My daughter has always had a weakness for Hello Kitty. I have to admit, I'm guilty of being an enabler. She is hard to resist.

My brother ended up with a duck collection that way. His mother-in-law got it in her head that he liked ducks, and it all went downhill from there. (Naturally his siblings found it hilarious and gave him ducky items for every possible occasion...)

I see many Hello Kitties in your future!
