Okay, I was the first of all my friends to ever eat an artichoke or an avocado and I've always I've shopped in odd markets looking for interesting foods all my life...at least to look at since I can't eat many things due to food allergies, but this one surprised even me! We wandered around the farmer's market at the Maui Mall after our movie looking at the pretty fruits and vegetables when we came across this..... Pretty, yah? Pretty weird! The thing was over a foot long and at least 8 inches across....all gnarly and twisted and spiky! Sent Keely a pic on the cell phone and she summed it up pretty well...."Looks like a giant pear from an alternate universe".

Our neighbors, Mary and Maile left a bag of these pretty Star Fruits at our door last week. We had tried them long ago on a trip to the islands but I guess the ones we had weren't ripe---VERY bitter. Even the kids (who use to like to suck on lemons) wouldn't eat them. These were sweet and crunchy! Made my lips do the tingly, tongue swelling thing so Phil enjoyed the rest of them. (btw....how can you be allergic to something you've only had one other time, years ago?????)

Here are some more lovely jewelry pieces made with sea glass....
Watch for more--have lots of glass to play with! And now that I have my package from the mainland from Diamond Bits I'm getting the hang of drilling the holes. So much easier with the proper sized diamond drill bits!

Have been watching for Sea Glass treasures on my beach walks and collected quite a few pretty pieces. Was showing my neighbors and they showed me theirs too.....Whoa!!! They've been here a lot longer than we have! And best of all---THEY SHARE!! (thanks Mary & Maile!) So now I've been playing....
Thought I had more pics downloaded from my camera but can't find them...oh well! Better post this now and look later or it will be forever until I add another post...I'm not very good about posting regularly in case you hadn't noticed!
Hope you're having wonderful end of summer weather where ever you are.
