something blue

i made this handkerchief over the weekend for a dear friend of mine who is about to become a missus. i used some liberty tana lawn that i had and hand stitched the rolled edges. perfect for catching a stray tear on the big day!

i always carry a hankie for myself especially in the summer, so i know i will be making many more of these.

we went to the IDS west this weekend (which was nice, alot of familiar faces and work there) and of course this was one of the two photos i took, at the entrance of the convention centre. (which is amazing BTW)

however i also took these photos on our walk back to the car, of the art deco marine building.

(click on the images if you want to see them in more detail)

it was finished in 1930 and used to have uniformed doorman standing at the entrance.

i used to work a couple of buildings over, and after passing the marine building each day i guess i just kind of got used to it, took it's beauty for granted. well on sunday it was like i was seeing for the first time. it is so beautiful!

i love the canada geese and the ship detail.

aloha, again

these are the only other pictures i took on our trip. i favored holding a drink more than a camera i guess.
notice a theme?

this was the other apparent theme. birds looking into the camera.

we are back from our relaxing vacation in waikiki. well, sometimes i don't find waikiki itself particularly relaxing since it can be quite busy, but our hotel always is and we made sure not to do too much of anything other than eat and drink.

drinking the best mai tai's (see this post) and watching kanoe miller dance the hula at our hotel.

view of diamond head as the sun was setting. (and trying not to torch my hair.)

our view of the spectacular pool and beach.
oh it's always so hard to leave..
