Challenges

This week I completed a few challenges I have had on my desk for about a month.


First of all I want to show you our space at the Tree House Mini Mall. It is looking better all the time.
Unfortunately there have been some of our things disappear. One in particular was a very large blown cobalt blue glass bowl with a rippled edge. It appears that it has been stolen as has a very expensive antique phone from the booth next to ours. I don't know if I mentioned that when we rented this space part of the agreement was that each tenant has to work 8 hours a month just walking around to make sure nothing gets out the door without being paid for. Hummm. There are many spaces and lots of us are walking around so how did these items get out the door? We have to do the 8 hours plus rent and 12% of what we sell.

We are having second thoughts about this. We did hear that the place has been sold so it will have new owners soon. I hate to move out since I have waited for three years for a space to open up in any antique mall here in town and it is so much work to get everything tagged and unpacked and the shelving put up. Say a prayer for us.





I joined two ATC Swaps for this month. One on Creative Souls and One on Blissful ATC's so here are the two ATC's .

The theme on this one was "Leaves"

The theme on this one was "Wonderful Words"


I have gotten behind in my Comfort Doll Project so I made three little dolls and sent them off.

I always get a little sad when I hear about theft or any other crimes being committed. I am so sorry that after all that work and waiting for a space that this happened. Hopefully it will stop altogether OR the person will get caught. I can't wait to get my ATC in the mail it's beautiful. I'm still a work in progress, but promise to send ASAP. Have a great weekend.

I hope this works out for you hon. Waiting 3 years is a long time and your items are perfectly displayed...no surprise :) We have an antique mall here and I've never been. Writing it down so I'll remember to stop buy. I have stuff in the attic I'm not using from all my other stops years ago LOL

You'll do fine honey just more extra work but lets say a little prayer for the thief that she gets right with God before he comes back.

I know how you feel....I had some very valuable items walk out of an antique mall I was in. It is so aggravating, disappointing and disheartening too.
Your space looks great...i guess some loss is to be expected but still...
Love your ATC's!
