For Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities, Etc.

If you are a Minnesota resident in the Twin Cities area, put check out my favorite shops in Buffalo, MN about 30-45 minutes from the Twin Cities, but worth the trip. People go to Buffalo every month from all over for FABULOUS finds, at GREAT prices - often one-of-kinds items.

I sold jewelry at The Three Sisters a couple of doors down - what a wonderful experience: working with such talented ladies, meeting new people every month - it was wonderful.

The Porch is on the corner and the owner's apartment upstairs was featured in Country Living. If you check out her blog you can see pictures. My sister and I toured her apt - WOW!

My niece and I checking out the place last summer.

Spring is Around the Corner

Cross your fingers - Spring is just around the corner, as it's summer in MN today. I love this picture from a fabulous Etsy photographer. It reminds me that soon the dock will be going out at our lake home and spring cleaning for summer is near.

WOW !!

I Want Candy...

This necklace is fabulous - I see vintage beads in the design, and other yummy beads in bright and wonderful colors.

I love looking at this shop - "Divine Rose" from Sydney, Australia. I find her shop so uplifting and inspiring.

Doll Dresses

from Emily, the adorable tabby:

I'm rubbing my head against the laptop, trying to tell my mom to get off the internet and give the tabby some love, but she wants to show you one more item - a super cute dress she bought for her niece, very well made - please check out the shop - "The Sewing Shed" on Etsy, of course.

A Favorite Shop

We aren't sure what we like best - the titles of the pieces or the jewelry pieces themselves. I check this shop out everyday - what a fabulous imagination !!

from BHG

Branch Out - Pruners, a relatively straight tree branch, white spray paint -- voila! A nature-inspired, functional work of art. Use tie-top curtains to adjust for the curves of the branch -- no rings or clips needed.
