Taking a chance...


If you are a Facebook friend of mine, you may have seen a week or 2 ago a post about my going for a ham & swiss croissant and ending up with a fabulous opportunity. This is about that moment. :)

I work in a historic area called Victor, NY. The buildings are older and the village is quaint. One of those building is The Historic Dryer House. The women that recently refurbished the building and started a Tea Room also take vendors for nearly every nook and cranny in the two-story home-turned-business.

I am now one of those vendors. YAY! The opportunity was a bit more complicated than my relationship with La Bella Mela, but I had to give it a try. And the two businesses are nearly an hour away from each other in two different counties—so, no conflict (which was important to me to preserve the relationship I already have at La Bella Mela).

Here are some pictures of my little corner all set up with the beginning of my craftiness.





I am so excited about this endeavor and I have the highest hopes for taking a chance on this. Any ideas what else I can make for this space? I have so many ideas!! I get to use that whole wall adjacent to my table, so many more framed items are in the works.

Have a great Friday, and thank you for sharing this moment with me. I know I owe a huge debt to all you for supporting my crafts and giving me the confidence to give this a go.

Oh Diana, how cute : ) I just love the look.
Something I've been wanting to make is a pin cushion inside an old style tea cup.

How exciting! If I lived anywhere near there I would have to come and clear out some of that corner! I like the comment about making headbands, I'm always on the lookout for cute things for my girls. Can't wait to hear how it works out!
