Some local island flavor

 {Honolulu photographed from Diamond Head volcano summit}
The blue, blue sea and skies around you

Tropical lei (men traditionally wear leafier leis)

Sharka the cuddly toy shark (very popular!) won't bite

Friendly monster at Kailua Beach :)
~ Wishing you a week filled with blue, blue skies (at least in spirit)! ~

{All photographs taken in Hawaii, of course. :) Friendly monster made by my brother.}

Blue skies to you as well. You know here in Phoenix we usually do have blue, would love a drop or two of rain. That sand monster is fantastic, I can barely muster a lame sand castle. I blame it on growing up in the desert - that and my lack of artistic skill.

Oh, this is so gorgeous, Jude! Sigh!! Thanks for giving my eyes something to dwell on and dream!! And thanks for your nice welcome back - I missed you, too!

Your brother is amazingly talented I must say. And I have not played with soft toys for a while now but those adorable sharkas might make me start again. :) lol

I found your blog via zoe loves fashion's blog and kinda am very happy because of all the random goodness it has to offer. Keeping me occupied on this rainy/ windy night.
