How honored I was while pulling up one of my favorite blogs to see that my friend and artist, Cindy at Fat Cow Studio had honored this blog with a Liebster Award!

Wonderful Shabby Christmas Tree....

I was so excited when I found this wonderful old shabby tree.  It has a great vintage color and feel...and I could not wait to get it to the mall.  It got to spend the night in our booth and was gone the next morning!  It was pretty in there for a moment....and now will be a wonderful addition to one of our dealer's home.  You shouldn't fall in love with the things you sell!  I know it has a wonderful home and will have a long life of making their home beautiful.

Happy Thanksgiving....

Pictures from our Harvest Booth at Lone Star....

Just a note to wish you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.  I have so much to be thankful for and this post is not long enough to share how truly blessed I am...but I do count one of my blessings the outlet I have found in antiquing.  It affords me the opportunity to do the things I love (shop and decorate), but it more importantly has brought so many wonderful people into my life.  I read a book a while back called the "Celestine Prophecy" and one of the prophecies is that everyone you meet is put in your life for a reason if you are open to it.  Working at Lone Star has created so many wonderful friendships.  Doing the Homestead show in Hico has been a blessing.  Shopping at incredible places like The Funky Monkey, Laurie Anna's, Canton and Round Top have all brought amazing people into my life that have blessed me.  The blogger world has brought so many talented friends into my life that inspire me every day.  I am thankful for all of you junkers, owners, shoppers, sellers, bloggers....and friends in my life.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

The Ruby Grace Christmas Booth...

I love the time of year....where we get to be OVER THE TOP with Christmas!  Take the already "Red" booth and bring in some green and you have a bright and cheery Christmas Booth.  Thank goodness it was a dealer work night and the mall stayed opened for everyone to bring in Christmas....Mom and I needed the extra time to get it all done.  It was so much fun to work with all the dealers who were merrily decorating their booths...we were all already in the Christmas Spirit.  While we were setting up, the cutest little 14 year old girl came in with her Mom and bought our red and white Christmas Prom Dress....but no worries, we ran home and brought in two more!  Stop by Lone Star and see all the wonderful booths already in the Christmas Spirit.  Ho Ho Ho!

My Love Affair with the Gerber Daisy...

If you have followed my blog long enough, you know that my favorite flower is the Gerber Daisy.  I love the colors and they are good for Spring or Fall Decor.  I spent some time a few weeks ago decorating a little for fall and decided to bring some fresh Gerber Daisies into the mix.  They make me smile!  Unfortunately, they did not last long (I guess they were not very fresh), but the were beautiful while they lasted.  Oh and yes, I did throw a couple of sunflowers as well.  Happy Fall Y'all!

Some Pictures from the Hico Homestead Fair...

I need to start this post with an apology to ALL the wonderful dealers who are not pictured here.  I took my camera out the first morning before the show started to get hundreds of fantastic pictures.  When the pre-show dealer meeting started, I got distracted and planned on coming back later.  Guess was not until I got home that I realized I never did.  Here are just a FEW pictures from the Homestead Antique Fair in Hico.  I should have several posts full of wonderful eye candy and feel bad that I don't.  Sorry to everyone who is not included, it certainly was not because of the lack of incredible merchandise and displays....just because of a forgetful and easily distracted me!
