The Perfect Weekend at Glensheen Mansion

Ely, Heim-made

Glensheen Festival of Fine Art and Craft

What a weekend we had! The weather was gorgeous, sunny, warm temperatures and hardly a ripple on Lake Superior. We couldn’t have asked for more beauty.

The ambiance of the Glensheen grounds and gardens is spectacular (have you ever been?) and the crowd truly seemed to just soak it all up as everyone meandered through the festival, munching on warm peanuts and homemade ice cream.

Once again, our little Heim-made booth was quite busy. Our new, nuno-felted scarves were the biggest hit! These scarves are hand dyed by Mama Roza (that’s me – the Polish Mama!).

Some folks took full advantage of our SALE on summer hats and snagged themselves some stylish shade.

Next up? The Minnesota State Fair. We’re working like crazy to get ourselves ready for the Great Minnesota Get Together. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates from the Fair!

More soon,

Rose
