Aloha State...

 Taking a detour from design at the moment to get your feedback. This August we will celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We are planning a trip to Hawaii. We have never been and have decided to go to The Big Island; but are open to suggestions before we book it this week. I would love to hear about your favorite places to see, things to do, and places to eat if you have been to any of the Hawaiian islands. Thanks!

Boathouse Retreat...

A lot of our summer weekends are spent at the lake. I wouldn't mind having a place like this to relax in on those weekends. And don't forget to make sure you're covered and take out contents insurance .
Happy Weekend to you!

JuJu Hat...

What is that you ask? I didn't know either until last week when I posted the Sunny Side and one of the readers said she love it over the fireplace and another asked what it was. I didn't know so I looked it up and thanks to Google and Google images I found out what they were and that they are popular design accessories that add a whimsical pop of color to any home. What do you think...do you like them or not? 

Cameroonian JuJu Hats
During royal court affairs, tribal chiefs and dignitaries in the Cameroonian kingdoms wear a spectacular headdress known as the tyn, or juju hat. The feathers are symbolic of prosperity, and represent the wealth of positive qualities associated with birds. The pieces, which are woven onto a raffia base, splay out into huge circles and make impactuful wall art.
