Anuenue made it back home after a long journey of being invisible to the postal service!
I'm going to start off by apologizing to everybody for the quality of the pictures... we've been super busy with family in town and we're leaving the day they leave to go to the mainland for a family funeral, so there will be no other time (foreseeable) in the near future. Right now, it's dark and everyone else is asleep, but we're headed off before sunrise, so I'm not going to have a chance to use better light.... Also, apologies for the backdrop, everything is in disarray because husby and dad are also trying to build a shelf, and the only open space right now is in front of where the shelf will be. At least that pile of wood is good for something!
Here's Anuenue with all her stuff!
Wow, she brought a lot of fun goodies back! So many playbills and brouchures, an awesome calendar from NASA, Japanese candy, Presidential playing cards, bandages from the National Gallery of Art, a bag from Baltimore, a magnet from California....
She brought some fall (a pumpkin and some wonderful fabric leaves!), because we don't have autumn here in Hawai`i.
I absolutely love these lanticulars that Ptarmic Wumpus sent!
There are 2 from a project she's working on at NASA, and one from the National Gallery of Art! Sadly, these are more exciting in real life than in photographs.....
Also, she brought this delightful alpaca ornament from the Alpaca Festival! Squee!
And then, her lovely scrapbook with pictures from all across the mainland! (she not only visited Maryland and D. C., she visited California, New Mexico, and Atlanta (even if by accident) too! (Am I missing any places?)
Wow, thanks, Ptarmic Wumpus!! It looks like Anuenue really enjoyed her trip!
