Local Wayzata area resident and retired educator, Bonnie Martinson, is now creating unique art pieces working in the mediums of porcelain, ceramic and oils. She is a certified master of doll making by the International Porcelain Doll Artisan Guild, blue ribbon winner at various art events and art exhibitor at art shows in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Making personalized pumpkins for Blanc de Blanc's customers is enjoyable because they become family heirlooms for years of enjoyment.  Bonnie works in her home studio here in Minnesota, as well as at her winter home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Susan has always had a big interest in food and cooking.  At a young age, Susan was the designated daughter that would fry the bacon and toast the English muffins for family Sunday brunches, make the shortbread pudding cake for birthdays and try new food “combinations” to spring on her parents and sisters.  Eventually the ”foodie” bug hit hard enough that Susan focused her professional energies on her love of catering and entertaining. After relocating to a beautiful farm, Voila! Putting on the Ritts was born. Please join Susan on her journey to create and share fantastic entertaining ideas, cooking classes, gardening tips and party recipes to make your next event unique and memorable. And the adventure begins...

Making Old Things New

Steller Handcrafted Goods loves the textures and colors of wool and the idea of taking something old and making it new. Upcycling is a central part of their business. They forage for unique sweaters at thrift stores, garage sales, antique shops, estate sales and more. After finding forgotten treasures, they give them a second life. Steller relishes the little embellishments—vintage buttons, hand stitching and the mismatched nature of one-of-a-kind creations. They make mittens that will warm your hands and your heart.
