Sorry if it seems I have been MIA...I feel like a bad blogger! But I have the most exciting news! A new 'gallery' opened in town- right on Main Street. I have been wanting to go in for a few weeks, and finally stopped and met with the owner, Joan. She is a silversmith, and in her past life did community development in Kansas. She prefers the shop not be called a 'gallery', because that gives it too snooty an aire, but for lack of a better word today that is what I am calling it.
Here is a look at the cool place she has named 'Artizan's Alley'
Here is a peek at the inside:
So....here is the really exciting news.....
This is my spot in the gallery!
Yes, this is my little piece of the world! I am sooo excited!!
So, if I seem distracted.....now you know why. :)
Of course, there is the big job of readying the space, and selecting which items to display. I spent the better part of the weekend over Labor Day looking for and acquiring a white Baker's Rack to go with the white commercial grid wall panels I already own. I missed out on one or two, but found the perfect Baker's Rack on craigslist for a mere pittance, and it is in 'like new' condition! My sister is planning to share in the space with me, but also has not narrowed down which items to sell.
Oh- there is also a cute little luncheon area in the shop with the best under $8 menu I have seen in a long time called 'Apron Stringz'. Joan and her husband also used to do special event catering. The menu is made up from fresh ingredients and ideas, so if you are ever in Old Town Keller, then be sure to stop in and have a bite to eat, as well.
So, that is all my news for today! I do have a couple of great tutorials I am working on, and hope to post one by the end of the week.
We seem to have gotten past tropical storm Hermine for the time being, although it dumped about 6" of rain in my area. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those that continue to be affected by the flooding.
