Ruth's Waltz.....

 Hi Friends,

As you all know I was visiting family in
Arizona for two weeks recently.
During my visit I was able to go back to
one of my favorite antique malls.
The Merchants Square in Chandler Arizona
has countless booths with everything from
bathing suits made with sea shells to vintage
toy trains and scrumptious booths with items
you wish you had brought a truck to bring them
all back home with you!!!!
One booth in particular drew me in...As I was gazing
longingly at all the wonderful items a lovely lady and I started
to talk and as it turned out she was the owner of this lovely booth.
 As we chatted with one another we found we shared some places in common where we use to live in N.J.  I asked Ruth if she would mind if I took some pictures of her booth and if she would allow me to do a post about her and her lovely booth.  Ruth was most gracious and accepted my offer. Yay!!

The soft lamp light Ruth uses in her booth makes for a delightful and soothing stroll through the lovely items that she sells.

I love the mix of different items with the soft creamy shades
 that were so pleasing to the eye.

Such a sweet hat for spring!!!

Some lovely fingertip towels mixed with the verdigris patina of the urn and sweet little bird.

 So many Beautiful things....
                      A pretty display of cards...

 Ruth also has some gorgeous pieces of Jewelry...

Some of my favorite magazines..........
Ruth also has another booth here at the Merchants Square.
This antique trunk is in her second booth.
I could not get over the great condition of this wonderful trunk!!! The matching hangers were still there. The drawers were lovely too. How I wish I could have brought it home with me.

Thank you Ruth Anne for allowing me to share your
wonderful booth with my readers. I hope to see you again next year!!!!

Well my friends I hope you have enjoyed meeting Ruth. If you would like to write to her you can reach her at ....I am sure she would be happy to hear from you!!! :)

In my next post I will show you some more pictures I took at the Merchants Mall that
I think you will enjoy!!! Till then........I wish you all a wonderful day!!!

Love and Blessings to All,
