A long overdue booth re-do on our front booth at LoneStar! I love the colors and they way it turned out. It was fun to collect and fun to set up.

Well hello blogging world! For those of you who follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ruby-Graces/174205872640922), you already know our excitng news. We have taken a booth at a mall in Grapevine, Texas....Grapevine Antique Market. A friend told me that we are now a chain...ha! I am very excited about the opportunity to be here as they are going through a major renovation and upgrade and it is going to be a wonderful mall. After two coats of paint (I did not do a very good job on the first paint selection) and several trips....we are in a set-up for business. Thanks to those who have already been out to visit (sorry it was in such bad shape). Looking forward to a great relationship here! OH and don't worry....we are still at LoneStar! We love this mall and all the wonderful dealers there. The address in Grapevine is 1641 W Northwest Hwy, Grapevine, Texas 76051. Stop by and visit when you get a chance!

On our Round Top trip this spring, I found these WONDERFUL old iron stair railings! They are from an old school house in St. Louis. I fell in love and loaded them up. Of course, when I got home, I started to wonder how exactly I was going to display them. So I dropped them off at Mom and Dad's house and ask Dad to work some magic and build some wooden steps that look like cement....and viola! It apparently was not without some hard work and innovation...thanks Dad! I decided to do a setting that looked like it was outside a brownstone house in New York and had it all envisioned in my head. The day before we were going to re-do the booth...my head changed its mind and it turned into a wedding setting! Oh Well...I love the stairs and it was fun to do!

|Some of my recent finds!|
|I love this couch...|
|Look at the awesome burlap underneath....|
|A tear at the back....|
|Another view of the same tear...|
Okay blogger friends...I need your help. I found this WONDERFUL old couch in Canton and cannot decide what to do with it! My original intent was to leave it as is....but when I got it home and started looking at it, I wonder if tearing off the outer fabric and getting it down to the frame and burlap would be cooler????? I love the stuffing and all that is pouring out....but the burlap is awesome. What do you think???

|The Front Booth at LoneStar!|
|A friend found this white curio in the trash! It was missing a top and had clear plastic in place of the glass. He cut a new top, took the plastic out, painted and shabbied it and gave it to me! It was awesome....and sold the first day!|

Did you think I had dropped off the face of the earth? Nope, just living on a plane and in hotels recently. It does not give me much time to work on the booths or to blog...SORRY! Finally go the time at home to re-do and spruce up the booths. These pictures are from the front booth and all about the BLUE! It was really fun to do and I think Elvis would be proud of the Blue Christmas. Thanks for checking in despite my absence...I will post some updated pictures from the Red Booth soon.
