A Few of Our Favorite Things

These are some of our favorite people, places and things we've encountered along the way. Thanks for visiting us and them and supporting local and regional artisans and businesses!


Etc. magazine is one of our favorite local publications, check out the March 2009 archive for an article on minglewood house and studio.

Another unique South Dakota experience, Strawbale hosts their Summer Porch Series every Thursday throughout the season starting in June. Browse wares for local and regional artisans, enjoy the sounds of select musicians and sample the fare of local gourmets and the winery, all with glass in hand! See you there!

Olivia the Yorkie refuses to be seen transported in anything but a Rebekah handbag, and I agree~ any one of my numerous Rebekah Scott Designs handbags is the best accessory!

Lindy's jewelry is stunning, you know you want some! She joined us for the minglewood spring reception and I'm headed down to meet her friends in Omaha for a couple of shows there (watch the news & events section http://minglewoodstudios.com/). No worries--we'll get her back to Sioux Falls soon!
