This one's for you other Mo

Our local amazing Asian Market had their annual Hawaiian Festival last weekend. We go every year- saturday and sunday so we can get our shave ice fix. And listen to Hawaiian music and sit and wish we were actually in Hawaii and not in some parking lot in Oregon. Monica, who I call Mo also spent some time living in Hawaii so I knew she would appreciate the shave ice. This one was pineapple, passion orange, guava. Soooo gooood!
There was a booth with amazing vintage Hawaiian Muu Muus and shirts. The most awesome fabrics. These photos don't do the colors justice.

And we also found tropical flowers. I love tropical flowers. I love all flowers... They even had Plumeria leis and my husband bought me one and I wore it all day.



It started out looking like this but now looks like a rotten banana all black and brown with little peeks of yellow. I have it hanging on the wall next to my bed because for as unsightly it is it still smells like Heaven. The kids have decided that they don't actually need a tree house and want to put the money we would have spent on a treehouse into a vacation to Hawaii. Sounds good to me! We already have a fort in the bamboo patch in our yard so I vote for Hawaii too!


There have been some great things popping up in blogland made out of Party Dress. I am going to go right now and set up a flickr group and I would LOVE to see everything and anything you have made with it! The next collection went out to Blue Hill with all the tweaks so I think we are looking good and that one may be ready to go. As soon as I get the word I will show and tell here!
Aloha nui loa!

I was giddy when I saw you had a fresh post. And wow... a fresh Hawaiian post!

I was so bummed T and I couldn't make to Uwajimaya's - so glad you blogged about it. I swear I can smell the Plumeria's on your post.

I love that we have so much in common, and that Hawai'i is one of them! Hey... I just thought of something... not Aloha, but aMOha!

Can't wait for tomorrow... it's Amoha Friday... no work til Monday...

My son and family live in Honolulu. One of my favorite things to have is shaved ice. Yummy.

I am currently sewing a little short skirt for my sweet daughter who is an adult daughter. I love sewing for her. I will post the skirt soon. Nest I will use the fabric for an apron for me!!! Yipee and fun...

What beautiful fabrics and flowers! I'll have to watch for that event next year. I'm very curious about your next fabric line....
