Spring has come to my booth . . .

As many of you already know, I have an antiques/collectables booth at Merchant Square in Chandler, AZ.  I was up there rearranging yesterday and putting out more spring items.  Here are some pics I took yesterday after I finished up.

Time for pink dresses and girlie things.  I love the little garden cart for flowers and plants on the patio!  It is definitely shabby but would look great loaded with herbs or flowering plants in pots.
I love this lamp!  The base is an 1800's whale oil lamp made from leaded glass.  It has been wired for electricity recently and works perfectly.  And it is heavy!  Leaded glass is heavy!  See that pretty picture?  The frame is metal and probably from the 50's.  On the dresser tray is a fancy shaped glass jar full of a dozen of the quail eggs mentioned in yesterday's blog.
Here are some items in the white china cabinet.  Have to lock the small stuff up or it walks!  See the butterfly necklace?  I put that together with a shabby (i.e. missing some stones) rhinestone butterfly pin, a rhinestone bracelet and necklace.  It went together really quickly and I think it is neat!  I recently found the pair of mother-of-pearl opera glasses made in Paris (lower left).
I love this large picture of the pretty lady with her fancy hat.  It is a print on canvas in a really nice frame.  There are enough different colors in that print to go in any room.
Here is a pretty pink and white vanity with chair.  This piece is so girlie -- perfect for a little girl or teenager!  The pink glass lamps are vintage and both of them work.  I love doing this!  Can you tell???!!!
Here's something you may not know.  I have very little of this in my own home!  I prefer the western/Arizona/cowboy look in my great room area.  My bedroom has some girlie stuff, but not a lot.  I prefer the cottage look -- comfortable and pretty.  I will show you my most recent redo in there in a day or two!

I love your booth. I had a booth at one time in antique mall. In all of the months I was there I made my rent one month. Why do people have to take things without paying for them? You had to keep a close tab on them. I know I lost one of my table toppers and a couple of tea towels. I didn't get paid for them and they went somewhere. Take care

What a beautiful booth!
I LOVE that lampshade in the second pic.

And your locked cabinet full of bling, wow! You really have some beautiful things, and beautifully arranged!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
