Aloha! When I lived in Hawaii, the locals used to say, "Aloha," all the time. The expression really grew on me and I often used it. It took awhile, but I finally learned that Aloha actually has three separate meanings. You can say, "Aloha," instead of saying, "Hello" when greeting someone. You can say, "Aloha," rather than saying "Good Bye" when you're balling your eyes out and saying farewell to your good friends. You can also say, "Aloha," instead of, "I love you" when you're hugging your Mom.
Aloha means so may important things, I felt inspired when I saw this arrangement at Pottery Bar. I said, Aloha=HELLO! when I saw the picture. As I walked away I said, Aloha=Good-bye (tear) for having to walk away empty handed.
Now that I have it in my house, I'm saying Aloha=I LOVE IT! and the best part is, I didn't have to pay for it! So Mahalo to Pottery Barn, for the great idea! I'll let you guys figure out what Mahalo means, but here's a hint, it's posted on all the US trash cans, but it doesn't mean trash. ;-)
Now let's get down to business, shall we? For this little project I'm giving you three links to PRINTABLE FRENCH SONGS! Yay!
Simply print out your new French song on beige cardstock or linen paper. I used an old frame from my gallery wall for mine. But any frame would work. Pottery Barn is selling theirs with black frames and white, brown, or black mats- for 59-199 bucks! Mine cost me nothing, zero, zip, zilch. (Well except that my time if Hawaii was pretty pricey- are we factoring that in?)
There you have it, a crazy easy project and a knock off at that! In the top right of this photo you can see the Anthropologie Wood Cut Art Knock Off I did this past summer. Don't you just love the bright pop of color?
You can pop over and print that one for yourself, that way you'll have TWO knock off pieces of art for almost no time or money! What a great deal!! With that- all I can say is, "Aloha to you all and to all an Aloha night!"
