bunny love

after dying eggs with my cousins in my aunty's kitchen, chocolate bunnies were, hands down, my favorite part of the holiday so enjoy this impromptu roundup of easter finds for both little ones and the young at heart:

1 - hokulani bakeshop's iced animal cookies are almost too cute to eat.

2 - scoop up handcrafted sweetness like this felt bunny pin in berrysprite's etsy shop.

3 - your keiki will love gathering up eggs in a peter cotton tail bucket. you will secretly enjoy the accompanying chocolate dipped treats from big island candies (i won't tell if you won't tell).

4 - these adorable not a chocolate easter bunny toys from kailua dollmaker denise mollison have proved to be a popular pick this easter season. the last batch of bunnies are on hold so drop denise a note to add yourself to the waitlist.

this is something i've been meaning to do since, well, i started h|h two years ago but somehow never got around to it. now that the writers strike is finally over and my fella has gone back to work, the computer is all mine so there's no time like the present to finally cross this off my "to do" list.

anyhoo, be sure to stop by on friday afternoons for a little roundup of posts from hawaii bloggers and assorted stories and fun that may have skipped your radar during the week (plus a few timeless links mixed in from the past year or so).

  • if you fancied berrysprite's adorable fish bag featured last year, click over to holly's blog for a step-by-step photo tutorial.
  • molokai wrestles with the la'au development and teaches the rest of us a lesson in the process. {via airspace workshop}
  • ossipoff's iconic ibm building may be demolished to make way for ward's proposed mixed use complex.
  • just for giggles - snl spoofs the fierceness that is project runway winner christian siriano.

have a happy weekend!


oh so kawaii

baby butterflies

if you adore all things kawaii, you will fall in love with berrysprite's etsy shop which is overflowing with handmade cuteness. one look at the little crocheted menagerie, mystery fruits, and wee pouches and you would think that holly, berrysprite's crafty owner, had been creating all this goodness for years.

not so. she is, surprisingly, a crochet newbie and an inspiring example of what is possible if you have a passion for your craft. two of the whimsical items that originally caught my eye (the fish bag, below, which would be perfect for boy's/girl's day & the little japanese girl which reminds me of four words that gave me the heebie-jeebies during small kid time: pitter patter pitter patter) were snapped up in the wee hours, however holly is always happy to recreate pieces that have already found a home and also accepts custom orders.

you best get your orders in while holly still has time to get crafty since grad school is calling her name at summer's end. and don't forget to take a peek at holly's blog to discover what's percolating in berrysprite's honolulu craft lab.
