1615 Phalen Drive is the official address but it is Phalen Park and all the way through the park to the last building/parking lot on the left-The Golf Clubhouse. We will be unloading the truck and assembling displays in that lot.
Please park in the lot just before the clubhouse on your right (The Pavillion Lot)  or the lot just after the clubhouse on your right. Both are very close. I will make sure the gates are unlocked.

Lake Harriet Trolley

  • Holly Trolley, 12:30-3:30pm, Saturday/Sunday, Nov. 29/30 and Dec. 6/7

I love Linden Hills.  It is the most charming neighborhood.  The chain of lakes, the downtown area, the trolley.  It doesn't get much better than Linden Hills.  I am bias,  I live here:) The Trolly has been on my list of things to do with my kids.  I just never think about it when i am planning a day out.  I love that they have these events on holidays.  Its is on my Minnesota Bucket List.  Looks like I get to check it off this weekend.  

The fare for Holly Trolley and Vinternatt is $4 per passenger.
Share the spirit of the season by putting a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots under our tree. Please go to for additional information.

Instagram wins again.  I have been following Primrose Park since their store opening.  I finally made it into the store for their dress sale.  I have to say.  Jennifer, the owner, has fantastic taste in clothes! Usually I go into a boutique and like several pieces.  I went into Primrose Park and loved EVERY SINGLE PIECE.  It is my new happy place! 

It doesn't matter the occasion, she has an outfit for it.  Dressed up or down, this is the place to go.  Trendy yet go-to style.

Bambino Decor

I am so excited to have found this shop.  Both of my kids need their room redone in the near future.  One will be getting out of his crib and the other thinks she is a teenager and no longer likes pink.  

Trina was so much fun while I was looking around.  I found this store via Instagram. The pirate pillow and the wall decals drew me in!  Every time she posted a new pic on Instagram I would swoon!!!  Pillows are an obsession of mine, I am obsessed with all of her options!

It doesn't hurt that she has Minnesota Art hanging either:)

 If you have kids, grandkids, friends with kids, need a baby gift....Go here!!  Warning: it may make you want to have a baby!! You have been warned.
