Just saying hello …

Saying hello is a lovely thing to say to someone, especially when it’s genuinely conveyed with a good amount of charm and cheer. The best thing about saying hello to someone is when you get a ‘hello’ in return …

Taking the theme of ‘hello’, I did some serious research on madeit, because there’s just something rather lovely about pretty things inspired by that most wonderful of greetings.

Top Row (left to right):

  1. Letter K – International Code Flag Art Print, $20 by Empressionista (surely a unique way to communicate? I want these in L & T for Mr & Mrs Quiet Paws).
  2. Hello Little Fawn Necklace, $29 by That Vintage (I want to talk to a cute deer).
  3. Hello Speech Bubble Badges, $6 by Loopi For You (when the words won’t say themselves).

Bottom Row (left to right):

  1. Say it Cushion, $45 by Pepper Stitches (just perfect for posing with).
  2. Wrap Me Up Pack – Pushi, $10 by Write To Me (send a handwritten hello).
  3. Debossed Letterpress Notecards, $13 by Ruby Victoria (a lovely hello with texture!).

Surveys have shown that people tell an average of 4 lies every day, wouldn’t it be nicer to quote how many ‘hellos’ we share in a day? Or perhaps there should be so many that they are impossible to count? Yes, perhaps that’s nicer still …

    One word that offers such potential. A smile, perhaps a beginning. A word that bridges worlds….all started with one word. Hello.

    Love the ‘hello’ items, but quite shocked by the four lies per day stat. Lies can lead into all sorts of trouble, confusion and break bonds.

    Not enough people say hello anymore in passing. It’s a shame. Your right ‘hello’ is inspiring.

      Hi Andrew – As you point out hello is filled with potential … and perhaps that’s why it’s so appealing. You never quite know where you’ll end up after hello – perhaps it will be the start of a wonderful conversation, or perhaps it will lead to discovering a new friend … the possibilities are limitless! 🙂

      I must admit that on a daily basis my ‘lie quota’ would be quite high … that’s generally because I rarely tell the truth to the question ‘how are you?’ or ‘how’s work?’ … but perhaps one day that will all change!!

      I say hello to people all through the day, but sadly discover that a hello is not always returned. HELLO!! 🙂

    Hello’s are terrific but I also love the ‘hello’ that Tintin says when he comes across something suspicious or out of the ordinary – ‘hello, what’s going on here!’

      Hi Gabrielle – Haha, oh yes Tintin does indeed have the best of hellos …. now you’ve also reminded me about the English ‘bobby’ hello … ‘ello, ‘ello, ‘ello’ … 🙂

    What a gorgeous group of items. I love the notecards especially. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that people tell an average of 4 lies a day. It certainly brings to mind the phrase, “Don’t believe everything you hear.” 😉 Have a beautiful day!

      Hi Piper – Thanks for your visit! I’m so glad you liked the little collection of ‘hello’ goodies!! (I adore the notecards too – and they’re such a bargain as well, so it’s a double adoration really!).

      I’m wondering whether the stats about the number of lies each day includes only the super duper really bad lies, or whether it also includes a mix of white lies as well? I must admit that I probably tell more than my share of white lies each day … but I certainly think I avoid telling anywhere near four of the really bad variety!

      I hope your day was lovely and that tomorrow brings you another glorious day your way!! 😀
