No, I have not dropped off the face of the earth. I have just been working like a madwoman on my upcoming talk, “Create a World of Tiki in your Home”, April 13 at Arizona Tiki Oasis. I had thought this would be *relatively* easy, because I’ve given a version of the talk before. But then, diving in, I decided to change out all the photos… I’ve talked to a bunch of people who’ve built home tiki bars… and I’ve found even more resources.
Meanwhile, I still need to tidy up my own Mahalo Lounge… I need to put the darned camera on a tripod so’s I can get decent images what with all that dark lighting… and then, I’ll also have some photos of my own space to show. So… new stories might be a little slow coming here on the blog for a while, while I finish all this up. Afterward, though, golly: I’ll have a whole bunch of new info and inspiration on creating your own home tiki space to share on Retro Renovation. Several folks I’ve spoken too already have said they’d be happy to share their stories and photos here on the blog. I’ve been meeting such wonderful people — just like here on the blog, that’s what makes it all so gratifying and happy-fying!
