Favorite Thing #17

As a kid whenever we took our yearly summer trip to visit my grandparents in San Francisco, I loved going to the Sanrio store in Japantown. That was better than visiting a candy store! They had the cutest things and my favorite... Hello Kitty!

Back then it was harder to find Hello Kitty items but now you can pretty much find her in most stores. Obviously I've outgrown that phase a long time ago but of course my daughter is into it now. I passed along many of my "vintage Hello Kitty" items to her. She even told me she wants a Hello Kitty birthday party. I guess she forgot that I threw her one when she turned one.
Who was your favorite childhood character?

  3. You're so talented, Eva! Most ppl's character cakes look nothing like the character, but yours are spot-on! Imagine if you started a cake making business :O! Anywho, I loved Sanrio too and love visiting the stores in Chinatown. I loved the duck, whatever his name was ;). And Garfield too!
