If you are considering a drive up north to see the leaves this weekend, I recommend you stop by the Ripple River Gallery, near Aitkin, MN on Saturday, October 2nd. It’s about a 2-hour drive north of the Twin Cities.
The gallery is hosting a Fall Open House & Raku Firing! You can find details here. There is also a wonderful woodworking show on display in the gallery.
You will see Mille Lacs Lake on the way…
… and many colorful leaves at their peak
You might see the fearless deer that were grazing in Bob & Amy’s yard on Wednesday.
You’ll experience the warm hospitality of the owners, Bob Carls, wood turner, and Amy Sharpe, weaver and gallery manager.
I dropped off a few runners and pillows, including this new rabbit pillow.
