Aloha Flower Folks!
So what does a floral designer do on her vacation?
She searches for a paradise of flowers and other artists to visit.
I usually spend at least 2 weeks on Kauai, But Alan, my Hubby wanted to return to Maui for some diving and visits with friends.
We arrived on Maui to wonderful late summer weather with cooling trade winds. Staying In the Kahana area in a beach front Condo was a plus, close enough to walk to many sites with shopping and galleries nearby.
The condo was decorated in beautiful Japanese Shoji screens and a bamboo canopy bed, that was lovely to see, but hellishly hard, LOL. Making napping on the sand with a good book a delight.
I met some wonderful artists and designers as I visited the towns around the island. look for an article or two soon at UBloom with photo gallery images.
In the mean time, here are some of my faves from the trip.
Rissi, Our Hostess with the mostest at the Old Lahiana Luau,
Jack the Dog & Big Blue the Cat from Anuheua Flowers in Makawao,(farm owners Judy & Bill Merten were a deligh
the carved art and antiques,at the Maui Swap meet,
And spotting the fact that due to economic factors, even Buddha was for sale in Lahaina!
Lots of fond memories, and new friendships to cherish.
And now back to work in my studio with wonderful fall weddings and parties to plan. I look forward to the winter holidays ahead, and welcome your calls for party and holiday house decor .
As they say in Hawaii- Mahalo ( Thank You!) for a fun season!
