Sorry I have been so absent, it is that summer thing in Minnesota…we are all outside busy!

Last week I took some excellent photos of our booth at the farmer’s market. I have been sending in applications for shows. Some request pictures of your product and some ask for pictures of your booth space and I had none, at least none that were that great. Tell me what you think! We are going for kind of a cottage feel, did we do it?

Rainy Day Grey

It actually hasn’t rained here today, but it sure looks like it wants to…and rain would be welcome. The trees are starting to bud and I know if we could just get a little rain, the colors of spring would just pop. Until then here are some lovely selections from my HandmadeMn friends that helped brighten my overcast day!

An Unsung Treasury

Have you found the Treasury clocks on They are a great tool if you like to post Treasuries to Etsy! Both treasuries are timed to let you know when they will open up for postings.

I put a collection together on Saturday night and checked the clocks…about 8 hours until both Treasuries would open up. But mother nature intervened. I was coming down with a bad head cold and was taking the day pretty easy, fell asleep (much needed rest) and slept right through the time the treasuries opened up. :’(

Below is my treasury. All the beautiful items are made by members of the HandmadeMn Etsy Street Team ( Unfortunately you can not click on any item that might interest you as I was only able to take a “snippet” picture but all members of the team are posted on their website above (if you want to check out the Etsy shop of any artisan.)
