Fun Friday Finds: Minnesota Skies Show Signs of Spring

By Sharon Parker
Arty Didact

I tell ya, one day it feels like spring is just around the corner, and the next day it sure seems far away.

But the sun doesn't care; it just keeps climbing higher in the sky each day, and in just 22 days (March 20 this year), it will gain the upper hand, and winter will have no choice but to concede defeat.

And the sky over Minnesota just keeps getting bluer and brighter, doesn't it?

So here's a celebration of the bright colors of the Minnesota sky as the northern hemisphere continues its inexorable tilt toward the sun.

HandmadeMN Fun Friday Finds ~ Lucky in Love

by Mollie

Today is Friday the 13th, a day typically associated with bad luck.
I actually find this day to be lucky for me. I hope many of you do too.

And tomorrow is Valentine's Day. I am not one to overly appreciate the day for what it has become in terms of holidays. If you love someone, you should show it on as many days that you are able, not just Valentine's Day. But for many, it is one day they feel they can go full steam ahead and do things they maybe wouldn't normally do as far as sharing their feelings, doing something special for their someone special, etc.

Here's today's treasury, filled with wonderful trinkets perfect to give anyone, anytime.
{As usual, click the image above to be taken to the treasury.}

What are some things you enjoy doing for or with those you love?
Spending quiet time together?
Enjoying a nice home-cooked meal?
Eating lots of chocolate?
Taking a walk around the lakes?
Going ice fishing?

Whatever it is, I hope you take a moment to see how lucky in love you are, and share your appreciation with those you love.

On behalf of the HandmadeMN team, I'd like to thank you for your faithful following of our blog and for your continued support and patronage of our shops.

We love you!
