State Fair week and monarchs-aflutter and school buses on the street — oh my!
You know how that all adds up: The end is near! The end of summer, that is.
The colorful flowerbeds will soon give way to colorful tree tops.
The fluttering of butterfly wings will be replaced by the fluttering of leaves.
And yet, still, there's beauty everywhere. And aren't those cool evenings wonderful?
Here is a collection of handmade items from our Minnesota Etsy team to celebrate this most excellent transitional time, and remind us to get out and enjoy it all, as summery things begin to tuck in like Sleeping Beauty, ready for a long nap.
