The first storied Christmas tree

21 12 2019

Mary Dominis, of New England, is credited with bringing the first Christmas to Hawaii in 1858. She was the wife of the first Governor. Last night on an evening tour of Washington Place, the official Governor’s mansion in Honolulu, I was charmed by her handmade ornaments.





Thank you, Perrin

Festa dei Nonni 2014 by Perrin

DH went to Italy to visit the kids after we both went to his high school class reunion in Pennsylvania, and I returned to the Islands to attend my class reunion. Both granddaughters attend Italian school. One day Miss Marvelous’s younger sister Perrin, almost 3, brought home this darling ornament for her Papa. It was Grandparents Day. Pretty good likeness of Popo and Papa, don’t you think? I like it.
