Happy Hour

The 1950’s saw a revival in Polynesian pop culture…

 

The 1960’s brought us avocado green and harvest gold…

And I got out my trusty sewing machine, mixed the two decades together, and came up with this little bag

I had so much fun whipping up this “fabric cocktail” I think my blender was jealous… 

Cheers, my dear readers!

    1. Thanks Tina! Me too with tiki bars, and almost anything else tiki as well. It was a good day when I found the coconut mugs-stuff like that really makes my pulse go racing!
