It looks like summer has finally arrived in Minnesota. After months of gray, overcast days the lush green grass and foliage and vibrant flower blossoms are a welcome sight.
There's an Etsy shop where you can get the freshness of summer blooms all year long. MaryFosterCreative is filled with fine art flower and foliage photographs by Mary Foster. Not only does she photograph nature's beautiful works of art, she grows the blooms herself!
The shop features flower and foliage prints as well as note card collections. Cards can be purchase individually or in sets. Imagine how thrilled someone would be to receive a lovely hand-written note on one of these gorgeous cards.
Mary has another talent ~ crochet! She makes adorable crocheted accessories inspired by her flower photography and offers these in her shop too.
Come visit MaryFosterCreative for a healthy dose of summer blooms and incredible talent. Tweet

My kids are out of school for the summer. Now it feels official. I have some adventures lined up for the family like a few road trips, camping and bonfires. I'm sure there will be lots of biking, time at the park and swimming. Have a great summer!

Today's Fun Friday Finds is inspired by our new HandmadeMN team Pinterest board!
We're just getting off the ground with it, but I thought it was a good idea to feature a few of these artists today. There are a couple of duplicates - that's because these folks have done such a great job showcasing their work on Pinterest, I didn't notice I was picking them more than once!
