The legend of Hawaii, the Ohia tree, and the Lehua blossom
The legend says that one day Pele met a handsome warrior named Ohia and she asked him to marry her. Ohia, however, had already pledged his love to Lehua. Pele was furious when Ohia turned down her marriage proposal, so she turned Ohia into a twisted tree. Lehua was heartbroken, of course. The gods took pity on Lehua and decided it was an injustice to have Ohia and Lehua separated. So, they turned Lehua into a flower on the Ohia tree so that the two lovers would be forever joined together. So remember, Hawaiian folklore says that if you pluck this flower you are separating the lovers, and that day it will rain.

- Flour Sack Towels -
From the 1850s to the 1950s, everything from flour, sugar, chicken, feed, sausage, and even voting ballots were packaged in tightly woven cotton bags; known as "FLOUR SACK" in a day held. Thrifty housewives would wash and bleach the sacks, then cut and sew underwear, pillowcases, toys, dresses, and what was used most, kitchen towels from them. Their popularity passed down from mother to daughter.
