Pau Hana, Mi Pilialoha

I was having a birthday. So I planned a party.

The party itself wasn’t a huge undertaking, but my plan to finally, after seven years of talking about it, finally make my basement into a tiki bar/lounge in time for said party… that was a huge undertaking. A good number of people helped, in ways large and small. A greater number of people showed up to help me celebrate both the anniversary of my birth and the completion of Phase I of the Pau Hana Lounge.

Thanks to the general wonderfulness of my friends, I feel all warm and fuzzy.

Or maybe that’s the steam from the dishwasher. ;)

I’m retiring some items in the Vintage Home category this weekend so if you’ve had your eye on any Melmac or the lovely Franciscan Ware divided serving dish in the Larkspur pattern shown above, now would be the time to buy! 30% off the entire category through Monday, July 4th.

NOTE: The sale isn’t yet live as I type this, but sale prices should go in effect at/around 9am MST today. Good luck getting what you’re after!
