Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

Mele Kalikimaka! (or, "Merry Christmas!")

Aloha!  Wishing  you all a wonderful Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!  Hubby and

 I have been sitting on our lanai this morning, watching the surfers and rainbows, too! A bit surreal for my first Hawaiian Christmas!  Thought you might want to see a few of the beautiful tropical flowers here!  Hope you all have a great day spending time with those you love!

What a gorgeous place to spend the holidays. Keep taking lots of pictures! Merry Christmas, Donna!


We spent Christmas 2009 on west Maui. It was awesome! Where are you all staying? We stay between Kahana and Ka'anapali when we go.

Merry Christmas,
