Japan Love

As I have said I have a some what love affair for Japan and more a less anything Japanese.I think it would be from my child hood where I used to watch a few Anime with my older Brothers such as Wolfs Rain.Then as I grew so did my Interest,Once game we used play at primary school was where we had to bow to each other and say hello in Japanese to each other,My first taste of Culture and a word from Japan. Odd game to say but it may have added to my thirst to learn more about Japan,I was a new girl at schools as we moved a lot with my fathers work I mind a few Kids ask if I was Japanese with my Jet black hair and I tan very easy so would have a olive completion.Kids say the Strangest things lol.
As I hit Teens my friends at (yet again a new school) watched lots of Anime from Sailor Moon to Dragon-ball Z and Yes I grew up with Pokemon,then I discovered Final Fantasy thanks to a close Friend whom had a big interest in Japan also,I remember we went to a after lunch time class to Learn Japanese. When I met my back then Boyfriend he was also into anime and or Films,Many nights we spent watching Anime and would watch it in subs as I adore the sounds and language of Japan.Not Just Anime I adore but it Ranges from the old culture before the World wars and Geisha's completely amaze me.Id love to go to Kyoto for the old feel of Japan.As I would love to go hit the city of Tokyo. Japanese Fashion is a love of mine as well they are the rulers of fashion in my opinion.Have to say some of it do look a bit out there for me.
My other Love from Japan is that no matter what they can make it REALLY cute LOL. If you are a regular reader you will know my secret love for Miss Hello Kitty,whom was created in Japan and taken on by the company Sanrio,And I have some collection of her in Plushie aka Soft toys.
''some of my Kitty's''
Last year Japan was hit really bad by a earthquake and then a Tsunami,It destroyed Lives,I happen to have friend in Japan and He felt the quake and posted it on Facebook I guess I knew of this quake before a lot of folks and when I sat and saw the damage,tears fell,My beautiful Japan took one heck of a hit from Mother Nature,Being a Witch I lit a white candle for hope and peace for Japan and let it burn of days on end,Lucky for me my Friend was safe and sound.
''me turing Japanese'' >.<
With my love for Japan and its Culture I do my best to understand it and because I love the Language I even have a good few JPop cds I listen too,as well I am trying Very slowly to learn to be able to say a lot in Japanese for some reason maybe due to me being dyslexic I can understand Romaji (Japanese written in our ABCs)fairly well and be able to sound out there sounds.Its my biggest dream to go there and see it all for myself.
Until we merry meet again ....Sore dewa mata! n.n xxx

Hello Kitty Xmas

As some of you may know i am a huge Hello Kitty Fan with a Range of Kittys from my own beckoning Neko Kitty to a knee high Princess Kitty! So its only fitting as a fan to put my tree up this year with a touch of Kitty.
Witchlet is also a fan she has a few kitty toys and has loved Kitty or ''itty'' she whispers when she see's her own hello kitty toys,which is so so cute!My love for The Hello kitty goes way back however is more with my love affair with Japan,Its a dream for me to visit the place and more so Kyoto and Tokyo and a must to go to hello kitty lands aka Puroland.I think id need a food few weeks to see everything I want to see LOL,Any way back on topic....Xmas.
So my tree or yule tree/xmas tree is white.

(hello kitty tree)
I wanted a white one as I have fond memories of the tree my grandfather had a skinny scrawny thing it was white but for some reason I was fond of the old thing,Also my grandfather would visit every year on xmas,when he passed over I started to rebel against xmas as it was not the same,He was no longer there at the table at xmas lunch or getting odd xmas gifts from him.(one year I got loo Roll...the other year I got Reindeer poo ...yea.)Its my way of keeping his spirit with me.
But Witchlet entered the world on xmas day and well I didn't want her to rebel against xmas(tho she will no doubt when older LOL) so I will be going out my way to make it her day!So xmas will not ever be the same know.
As I said my tree is white as much as I would love a real tree I do like my white one!
Well who else would look better on top of my tree that a star? Yup a hello kitty!
I have 4 Angel kitty's that know take place in my tree since last year and know the shops and stores have started to sell more hello kitty its much easier for me to theme the tree on kitty as you can tell from my pictures!

I took a lot of pride making the tree look very cute and kitty like with the candy canes and pinks and purples. I also made my own Pentagrams for the Tree out of glitter bending sticks!Which witchlet will get to do when she is older as I 2 purples ones until next year!
Witchlet is getting lots of hello kitty stuff for Xmas and her Birthday! I think we will both have lots of fun this year.

Wishing you all a merry Hello Kitty Christmas!
