That's Hawaiian for Merry Christmas! And it feels like Christmas morning here at my house!
The box arrived from Sharon at http://www.redgeraniumcottage.typepad.com/
What a fun fun fun box!!! Everything was wrapped up in colorful tissue paper and raffia!
The cutest note pads, coffee (yum!), chocolate covered macadamias, Kona coffee glaxed macadamias, dry roasted macadamias in the cutest wooden pineapple bowl, Hawaiian salt, Hula Mints, an adorable keychain, a stitchery bag, and two drink umbrellas!! Sharon, we're going to have to have a meet-up where we can put those umbrellas to good use! Oh, and the nicest little drawstring bag with embroidery, and a seashell necklace!!
Yep, definitely Christmas Hawaiian style at my house today. I need to get a copy of that old Bing Crosby song cuz this is from memory:
"Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day.
That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway.
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night.
Mele Kalikimaka is the wise way to say Merry Christmas to you."
Sharon, thank you!!!! You definitely injected some sunshine and smiles on this gloomy, smoke-filled day!!
