Sneak Peek: Treasures in the Woods and All Around the Lake

Summer at the lake means
relaxing and enjoying the outdoors....
But it also means great
places to find new inventory
for my Bella Rosa and Etsy shop.
A quick peek:
a Lady head vase, rose hat box,
a PINK LuRay salad bowl,
condensed milk holder, a Jack
and Jill book.
But wait! There's more!
Six jadeite FIRE KING mugs...

These lovely apothecary
jars are from Wheaton
glass...which is right near
my old hometown!
Found them, ironically,
in this Dear Blogger's booth,
Here is the sign
from her booth.
I'm like
"Hey, I recognize that sign
from the blog world!"
It was a weird moment,
in my real world
because they both
collided and it turns out
Laura stays not too far from
our lake house.
It got even funnier when
we realized we had been
standing across from each other
in the local fourth of July
parade and didn't even know it!
 How great is that?
What are the chances?

I spotted this vintage star
ornament and grabbed it
really FAST during this
year's crazy rummage sale.
I posted about it here,
last year. The sale was similar
to last summer, but maybe
the line was even longer
to get in!
Unfortunately we only
found a few vintage things
at this year's sale.
Okay, so I went off
track there...let's
get back on track:
A train will get me on track
as well as these other vintage toys...

Some vintage jewelry....

Pyrex mixing bowls!
The small pink one
is perfect all by itself.

An atomic / retro
alarm clock....and a
booklet about the new
baby prince!
Interesting to see the
family history now that
Kate and William are
having a baby.
And what a fun time
it was looking for
all of these vintage
I found the clock and the jadeite
mugs here:
 A little thrift shop in the woods!
Bebe and I love going here.
She finds fun toys
(Old Polly Pockets are her
biggest thrill) and I
find vintage goodies!
Now for the hard part...
getting them listed.
Stay tuned!

I love your wonderful vintage finds and I am sure getting away for the summer is a blessing. we did it for years and then retired here in the mountains.

I know the"hunt" is the most fun when you are looking for treasures.
Happy Pink Sat.
