Up North Treasury

Aaaaaah, summer. Today in Wisconsin, the weather is perfect. The terrible heat and humidity has lifted and we can finally turn off the air conditioners and open our windows. The sky is cloudless blue and the breeze is light. It makes me think of going up north to the cabins. Oh yeah, there's nothing like taking a break from the metro area and crossing the line between deciduous and pine about halfway up the state.

We won't make it up there this year, so in wistfulness, I will share my "Up North" Etsy treasury which evokes many of those rustic, camping at the cabin feelings.  And for those of you who don't know what an Etsy treasury is, it's just a collection or curated list of items for sale on Etsy - not usually items for sale by the treasury maker - that's considered bad form.  It's possible the Etsy folks could choose your treasury for their front page (changed on the hour), but it's never happened to me.  At any given time there are over 20,000 treasuries on Etsy.  Making themed treasuries is fun and can be very addictive.  I've seen treasuries based on colors, places, shapes, ideas - you name it!  People get very creative.

Actually, if you click on an item below, it will take you to the listing page of that item on Etsy.

I hope you're having a relaxing summer
and having at least a few
of those "up north" moments.

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
