The patchwork quilt was sent by Hawaii based friends ( and blog readers) when our son was born, its a cot blanket and I was loathe to pass it on when we no longer needed it. Our son is 18 now and I have always wanted to up cycle the quilt but never got around to it. I am thinking I will create something with it for the chalet, so watch this space… The Carlton Ware pineapples were a gift from my friend and festival buddy. On my first trip to Hawaii with him indoors one of our highlights was a trip around the Dole Pineapple canning factory…no seriously! Unfortunately it has since gone and the Hawaiian pineapple experience is now out in the fields where they are grown, with a theme park vibe. I loved the retro feel to the old factory with vintage canned pineapple signs and ephemera. So these pineapples are an addition to our tropical themed cabin. I need to make some pineapple jam or marmalade for the pot I reckon.
