I can't believe the trip Gabby and Lulu are having. Gabby will never want to come back to Minnesota!

Fluffy is getting a little antsy. We need to start some sightseeing or he is going to tear this place apart.

Turns out Fluffy is a proud Texan. I caught him roping and riding my pup Milo. I have no idea where the cowboy hat came from....

Fluffy and I enjoyed the spring weather on the deck tonight. Have plans to show him the Mighty Mississippi tomorrow which is a few blocks from my office.

We actually dumpster dived that outdoor patio set from a (rich) neighbor last week. We sewed some new colorful cushions and viola!

 I received a beautiful flag from RSCowtown. It has a sweet little flower and a song verse I love. Thank you. It is beautiful.

I received this bright beautiful flag from alwaysinmyroom. It is my first prayer flag. I love the vibrant colors and flowers. Thanks!

It's partially constructed with a vintage hankerchief. Love that detail!

Fluffy arrived in Minnesota today after a two day journey from San Antonio.
He was traveling with a friend and his pet chicken. Very cute!

He also packed a snuggie. Good idea. Minnesota springs can be cool.

We spent the evening relaxing at home.









Fluffy is quite the climber. Part sloath perhaps?











He made some fast friends in my kids rooms....

Quaggy is such an exquisite crafter! Amazing work.

Here's the flag I made for myself with a similar spring theme. I am just really noticing now though that my bottom edge is so crazy crooked. Oops.

I guess my swap asesthetic is more about messy creativity vs. perfection. Smiley

Gabby is en route to San Antonio today. Painting a little hostess gift before she left.

Gabby and Lulu spent their last day in Minnesota outside helping me clean up the yard and garden. Beautiful and warm sunny day. My tulips, lilies and irises are coming along nicely. Last year deer ate my tulips. Will spray w pepper this year.

I am already gathering together some little surprises and ideas for the swap! Also compiling a mental list of all the things about Minnesota I want to share and visit. Smiley
Gabby is an avid journaler so she will be traveling with her diary and her beloved Lulu bunny.

You know, people often lump Minnesota into the Midwest but we Minneapolis hipsters have renamed ourselves the North Coast. We have beaches along Lake Superior with waves so big people actually can surf -when the ice comes off! This is totally for real! Here's some pics from a recent article on it.






And this whole lumbersexual trend sweeping the nation. Whatevs!--Paul Bunyan, flannel, beards --we've been doing that look for AGES! Check out this fam rocking the plaid.





Some other cool stuff--The Mighty Mississippi River starts in northern Minnesota --its just a little stream that visitors can dip their toes in.



The whole "Land of 10,000 Lakes" motto is actually wrong. We have 11,842 lakes that are 10 acres or larger and probably a million ponds! I own a boat so I hope my little visitor can swim and water ski.

When I first moved to St. Paul, MN in 2004, I rented an apartment a block from the home where F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote his first novel "This Side of Paradise." Here it is right here. LV and I will have to stroll by.



The coolest dog in America heralds from Minnesota: Snoopy! Charles Schulz grew up in St. Paul, MN and launched his career though drawing the "Lil Folks" cartoons for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The houses in the Peanuts cartoon do strongly resemble MN. And all that ice skating, snowflake tasting and snowballs --of course it's Minnesota!



Schulz grew up with a dog named Spike who he liked to draw. You may remember that in the Peanuts cartoon Snoopy's brother was named Spike.



I can't wait to learn who will be visiting the North Coast! Don't forget the bug spray!

I'm new to the Little Visitor swap but I think my little Gabby is ready to travel. She's a funky, junky, eclectic, hipster, crafty urban explorer.

She'll make the initial trip with her shabby little bunny Lulu. ( Lulu will be seeking permanent residency. )

Gabby is sweet but mischievous.  She swears to me she will be on her best behavior.... we'll see.
Gabby is on a few meds--which I will be sending along with her for her host to administer. (She takes one jellybean and two orange tic tacs a day. )
