Hello, hello, hello,
I had the best Aunt Rita. It was ok to knock on her back door and then just walk in, she would always greet me with a great vibrant voice, a happy one, almost singing "hello, hello, hellooo". It always made me feel welcome, I think she made everyone feel welcome. Her kitchen/breakfast nook was a bright sunny yellow, very fashionable with yellow bamboo furniture. She was one of my style icons from the small town I grew up in. I used to love to study how she created her home, entertained. She had a wonderful plaid couch, hidden bar and game table too in her family room. Lots of cards, latch hooking and martini making going on in that family room. I think Aunt Rita's would have been a pleasant place to quarantine.
Maybe you have an Aunt Rita, or a happy place in your memories. I mine my memory for those treasures then I carry with me so I can summon when I need something to cheer me up. I know I can't be your Aunt Rita, but know you are welcome here. And I will be happy to see you. I never want to be nosey, but yet I'd love to hear about your treasures if you'd like to share✨
If you like we can chat about Japan, the shop, makers and countless other topics someday soon.
Hello, hello, hellooo.

PS this happy latch hook rug, ala the 70's is available at your Michaels.
PSS this really is a pic of my Aunt Rita, isn't she sooo pretty? BTW that's not her couch.
