It was like I walked into a freeze frame of a bygone era. The place I would be house sitting for the following few weeks was a glimpse into mid-century Hawaiian design.

I’m back on mainland and, just as quickly as my tan lines are fading, so are my memories of my recent trip to Hawaii. My experience house sitting an exquisitely eclectic house has me lusting after any and every design and decor items remotely Hawaiian in look and feel. So, in an attempt to bring home a slice of the laid back, breezy style of Hawaii, I’ve pulled together this collection of tropically spirited kitchen and tabletop items.

The Aloha State and I are becoming good friends as I’ve spent a fair amount of time there during the last few years. Admittedly, most of that time has been on Oahu, but this latest trip included my first visit to Big Island (aka the island of Hawaii). Along the way, I uncovered a lot of food finds to share with you, and, to really do the trip justice, I’ll be making the next few posts all about Hawaii.

Last week? Oh, last week seemed to be filled with sniffles and chills and more boxes of tissues than we’d like to count. That “thing going around” got to us, and while some good R&R never hurts, if we don’t see that little red Netflix logo for a long while, it would still be too soon.
The remedy is that we’ve shipped off to paradise this week. Aida’s saying “aloha” to Hawaii, which means we’re saying “well hello there” to some vicarious vacation time on Pinterest. Imagine the salt in the air, sand in your hair, coconut in hand, and the clearest blue water ever seen. Imagine tropical iced tea with a garnish of pineapple picked up 5 minutes from where it was picked itself.

Let’s put semantics aside this week because rather than a Last Fridays , I propose a First Friday. You see, last friday, I was practically hallucinating from a fever and was sick in bed clear until yesterday when I dragged myself out of bed in the name of my Girl’s Getaway trip to Hawaii this weekend. You know I love a good getaway, and, seeing as I date a Hawaiian, you know I’m always game for a trip to the islands.

Sometimes we miss Hawaii so much around here that the only cure is some ukulele music and a platter of these Huli Huli Grilled Chicken Skewers.
