Summer Headquarters......

 In a few days we will be packing up and heading off to our summer home for our yearly extended stay.

I look forward to these few summer weeks and always find it goes by so fast. 
There is always some major project on the "to do" list we tackle. This year it is the bathroom redo.

But we do find time to rest, relax, and enjoy the company of friends and family.
 "The summer night is like a perfection of thought."  ~Wallace Stevens

And we always start each day with a long morning walk when the air is still cool.
 "In summer, the song sings itself."  ~William Carlos Williams

I will also be scouring the great flea markets, antique and second hand shops in the area, finding unique, interesting pieces to add to my shop or upcycle into one-of-a-kind jewelry!

Have a great July everyone.......and if you find your self in Ottertail County, stop by and say "HI"

It's been too long............

It has been too long since my last post, but we have been so busy here at Nostalgic Summer World Headquarters and our Summer Headquarters are now open!

So here is a short catch up with more to come very soon!

We opened the Summer Headquarters late this year, the slow to start spring and everlasting snow kept us away. But it's now open and we are ready for a lovely summer!

We participated in several wonderful Art Shows this spring, a few new and one wonderful show we did last year as a benefit for the women of Cornerstone Women’s Shelter. They were all great shows...but I'm glad the spring shows are over! We did make the Eden Prairie News for our booth at the Arts In The Park Show!

I've been hard at work on a few new pieces....I'm so happy with this new line "The Geometric Collection" and the positive response! 

Here are a few pieces from The Geometric Collection:

All the above pieces are available on Etsy

Elongated Rectangles....coming soon to Etsy

Black & White Ovals

I hope you've enjoyed this peak at our new collection....Happy June!
