A Fellow Blogger's Antique Booth

On our trip back to California this fall we stopped to shop a little while at Merchant Square, an antique mall, in Chandler, AZ where a fellow blogger, Judy at My Artistic Side, has a booth.  The mall is huge, and a really fun place to shop.  Judy's booth is so cute, and I bought some small things to take home.

I bought the items in the photo below.  There are two dozen weathered clothes pins,  an old photo of a young woman, and a broken black bead necklace.  The necklace was sold as broken, which is perfect for me because I will be able to use the beads guilt free.

Painted Desert & Petrified Forest

Here are a few pictures from the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest for you to enjoy. They include pueblo ruins, petroglyphs, and petrified trees. (I have been using the Blogger iPhone app while traveling, so the pictures aren't appearing in the correct order.)

Old Town Albequerque

Here are a couple pictures from Old Town Albuquerque, NM. The beautiful old Mission is an active Parish. The weather is perfect this time of year, and we enjoyed a patio lunch.
