Totoro and the Neko 隣のトトロ
I dreamed I was walking with Totoro, in a forest of magical light.
All around us the flowers were singing, as we whispered long into the night…
And then one day,
A magic day he passed my way.
And while we spoke
Of many things,
Fools and kings,
This he said to me…
“The greatest thing
You’ll ever learn…
Is just to love
And be loved
An Adorable Neko Outfit for a Quiet Afternoon with Totoro
This post is a tribute to three of my favorite things… Miyazaki’s very special anime My Neighbor Totoro, the hauntingly lovely song “Nature Boy” by eden ahbez (sung by Nat King Cole), and a wonderful, new-to-me store called IZM by the talented Komachi Lemon. Not only does this store offer adorable neko hoodies, but there are a variety of other great outfit parts and accessories. While you’re there, be sure to visit the cute Café on the other side of the sim.

This is the location where we took our photos, but it’s temporarily closed… sims always seem to change or disappear right after I blog them! :)
