February 5, 2014Thinking Hawaii – 1979 Style
This has been a brutal winter for most of North America – cold, tonnes of snow and general awful weather. I am ready to escape it, at least in my mind, with a little help from the June 5, 1979 edition of Family Circle.
*sigh* Just looking at the cover makes me want to take another trip to Hawaii – especially since it’s about -25 deg C outside here at the moment.
Aren’t these dresses so tropical and pretty? I would wear the heck out of the blue and white floral one, so gorgeous!
Totally lovin’ the style of the white floral one on this page, too. Would be such an effortless style for summer!
Now on to a bit more crafting eye candy – Hawaiian quilts. Such a lovely quilting style, with such intricate stitchwork – it’s amazing!
Loving these pillows – if you have any type of Tiki themed room in your house, Hawaiian pillows like these would be an awesome accent.
And now we’ve got some tropical crafting ideas for the home crafter. I love the rainbow afghan, so cheerful!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our sewing and crafting trip to 1979 Hawaii – and hopefully it warmed you up, if only for a bit!
