you all know we love our beautiful state. one of the things we really love about minnesota are all of the wonderful local artists and crafters living here and making our already beautiful state even more so. there are some seriously talented people here. that is why today we wanted to focus all of our attention on minnesota artists for our love*birds post. we searched etsy high and low and found some amazing pieces to show you (it was hard to narrow it down so we may have to make this a semi-regular thing)! here are some of our favorite (and local!) things this week...
nora bird's picks:
how adorable is this little pair of chickadees? i love this! a tiny framed photo to wear! be sure to check out the rest of her store, too. she has some really amazing pieces.
erin is not only a friend and fellow awesome minnesota blogger, but she is also an amazing photographer. this photo of the state fair midway at sunset makes me smile.
um, i am pretty sure that my daughter needs this dress. it is so sweet! i love the vintage look and pretty floral fabric.
this MN/WI pendant is adorable. my hubby is originally from wisconsin, so i think this one is a must for me!
i am in love with oliver the shy owl. these coasters are just so cheerful and sweet! i want them on my coffee table.
megan bird's picks:
|mint medallion crochet bracelet|
from summertime fingerless gloves to some of the most beautiful rings i have ever seen, these crocheted items should all be in my jewelry box. swoon.
|vintage pink elephant mother and babies|
i have a soft spot in my heart for vintage animal figurines. weird? maybe. but one look at these cuties, and you have to at least kind of agree with me. i mean come on, they are all wearing bow ties!
|vintage inspired dress|
i love the audrey hepburn feel of this dress, and then bam, you turn around and there is this gorgeous cut out. love
|brass whale ring|
i love whimsical rings. enough said.
|welcome to mn print|
if you all know anything about me, it's that i love me some cute prints. and this is one that i really, really want! check them all out, though (especially if you live in minnesota) because there is also a grain belt one that will knock your socks off!
there you have it. some of our home state faves. are you as proud of your home as we are? who are some of your favorite local sellers?
