Fun Friday Finds: Getting Cozy

By Sharon Parker

There's nothing like a little snow on the third of October to make a person think about their favorite way to get cozy!

Do you prefer to brew a steaming mug of tea? Or heat up some Minnesota apple cider with cinnamon and cloves?

Perhaps you've been perfecting the art of making mulled wine! (For inspiration, you might sample the glögg at the Swedish Institute's excellent café, Fika; or the mulled wine served at the bar at W.A. Frost in Saint Paul; the newly opened Le Town Talk on East Lake Street promises to offer their own version soon, too.) We really should be nudging more of our favorite bars and bistros to offer this wonderful warming beverage this winter.

For general inspiration, in October-inspired colors, here's a collection of handmade coziness, with a little vintage to round it out, from Minnesota Etsians.


(And, um, you might notice that this collection actually has nothing to do with wine, mulled or otherwise. But, coziness and color, yes!)
