The Car and Trailer are Packed!

Well, the car and trailer are packed and ready to head toward LaurieAnna's.  I am so excited and anxious to get set up and meet so many wonderful folks.  I sure hope this stuff looks better all set up than it does tied down in a trailer!  Wish me luck.

Ruby Grace's Twirl & Curl...

Meet Lynda...she is getting her hair done at Ruby Grace's Twirl and Curl!

It is VERY pink and frilly at the Beauty Shop today!

And lots of fun stuff to pick from!
UPDATE:  The pink thermos sold!
UPDATE:  The 50's pink dress sold!

Hello, let us check the reservation book.  No appointment...that is okay, walk-ins are welcome!

UPDATE:  The pink frame on the table sold!

Grace is working on Lynda at station 1 and it could take a while...you know when Lynda starts to gossip!

No worries, Station 2 is open.  Ruby can get ya!

I think this old fixture was in a grocery store to display bread.  It has openings in each shelf to let the bread breathe.  But it is perfect at the Beauty Shop to display perfumes and other stuff for sale!

Evening in Paris, we got it!  Blue Waltz, we got it!  Check out the perfume case and smell wonderful. 
UPDATE:  The wonderful old pink suitcase sold.  The lady who bought it said her husband had an old vintage car this color and this suitcase was going in the back.  Fun!

UPDATE:  There were two chairs and a table to this set and they sold yesterday!

When Mom saw this cabinet, she tried hard to find a place at home or at the lake for it...but it finally ended up in the in the Beauty Shop.  Wonderful old chippy piece.

Tons of crochet doilies and scarves to pick from while you wait!

Drawers full of goodies at Ruby Grace's!

Shop for a dress or gown while you get your hair done!

We have transformed the pink booth into a 50's Beauty Parlor!  Welcome to Ruby Grace's Twirl & Curl.  It was so much fun collecting and putting this together.  We had a hard time getting it all set up as folks wanted to come in and reminisce with us.  It is so wonderful to hear the stories and memories that everyone has.  It struck a cord with many as the first day, our sales were great.  Come on in and reminisce...remember, no appointment necessary!

My Room at the Family Lake House...

Got this dresser top from Dorothy @ the Shabby Y.  I told Mom that I would love some old family pictures, so she found these of Great, Great Grandparents.  I love having our family history in this room.

I got this shelf from Lydia at The Lone Star Antique Mall and loved it.  I finally figured out that it would go above this window.  Old clocks make it perfect.  I found the Tea Room Sign at an antique mall in Graham, Texas.

My favorite piece is this wonderful desk that I bought from Lisa @ diggs (Montgomery Street Mall).  I had seen it and loved it, but did not even think about my room at the lake.  I was so excited when I went back and it was still there.  I found the burlap ottoman at Lone Star Mall at Betty Jane's.

Don't have a clue who R. L. Koenig is, but I love the street sign!

These wonderful old drapes came from Dorothy @ The Shabby Y.  There were perfect instead of a door on the closet.  The quilt hanging in the closet is one that my Grandmother made...Love it!

We found this bedding at the Spring Show in Round Top.  Bought the pillows and the lady made the rest of it for us.

The mason jar lights are from Laurie Anna's in Canton.  I LOVED THESE THE MOMENT I SAW THEM and did not have a clue where I was going to put them when I made the purchase.  They are wonderful (and practical) in this room!

I love the little tin stove in this shelf.
Mom has been wanting me to decorate my room at their lake house on Texoma and make it my own for some time now.  I finally found a few pieces and started putting some stuff together.  It started green and ended up burlap and blue!  The room is small, so it was important for me to be practical as well as pretty.  I love the way it looks and I think it now reflects a little of my style.  It was fun to do and now I just need to spend more time up there and enjoy it.
