Who Lived Here????

Wouldn't you love to know....

What kids played here....

What couple grew old here.....

How the interior was decorated back when....

Who lived here....

Who grew up here.....

Who loved here....

How many times were these trees climbed....

Whose memories does this old house hold...

How many families lived here in the life of this place.....

How could it come to this?????

I am not sure why I am drawn to old beautiful abandoned houses.  My mind races with wonders of the families that lived there.  How proud they must have been when they first moved in, the dinners that were cooked in the kitchen, the hours of play that happened in the yard.  I always wonder how these homes get in such ill repair and end up abandoned.  If I had an ounce of handyman in me, I would surely live in one of these stately places.  Such beautiful old homes that hold so many memories.  All these wonderful pictures came from Pinterest by the way!

Spring at Ruby Grace's....

Wouldn't this cart be a great cup cake display????

I love this yellow, chippy table!

Yes...I have suitcases in all 3 booths!

I even have suitcases hidden under tables....look down AND up!

So much to see!
-Update:  Blue Table Sold-

This would be a perfect Easter dress!

This is the dish patterns that my Mother got at her wedding shower 53 years ago!

The shabbier the better....

So 50's....

Tea anyone???

Fancy Bloomers...

The back of the dress is as pretty as the front!

More of those dishes...



It appears that we were in the spring mood when we re-vamped the middle booth!  We brought everything we had that was yellow, pink, blue or green.  Usually our booths are very color specific, but we will just call this one "Spring".   We got to talk to so many wonderful folks as we were working on the booth and so many of them shared memories of things we were bringing in.  I love to see folks smile when they see something that brings back a happy memory.  Happy Spring EVERYONE!

Front Booth Re-Vamp!

As my blogger friends know, many of the items in the booths make stops by my house as I try to keep them ALL!  This cabinet came close to staying, but just could not find the right now, it is in the booth.
-Update:  Glass door cabinet sold-

I love this old would be a wonderful, unique piece to decorate with.

I do have a dish and platter fetish!

This french bed is in such good is hard to find with all the decorative trim intact.

Getting to be prom season...I am sure this beauty won't last long.

I think old encyclopedias are so wonderful for decorating.

Did I mention the platter/dish fetish?????

This bust is one of my favorite things...I will be VERY sad when she finds a new home!

Of course...gotta have suitcases!

This rack was FULL of pearls...this is all we have left.

Another view of this wonderful dress.

Great Column

The chippy green paint on the cool!

Lots-O-Silver (well, silver plate).

I sure wish I had the cabinets that these old doors came off of...they are incredible.

-Update:  Sold-

Thanks for hanging with me through the lack of blogging that has been going on here.  Life has been crazy and the camera has been stuck at home.  I think constantly that I need to update the blog, but find life and sleep getting in the way!  I had a GREAT time at LaurieAnna's and it was wonderful to see many of you there.  I love, love, love this shop and the people in it...and I feel privileged to now work there.  I just thought I would share some pics of the newly freshened front booth at Lone Star.  Many dealers were there while I was it would be a good time to visit and see all the new stuff.  I promise to be a better keep checking back.
