Stel-laaaaaaaaaa!

Stella. The big, scary, blizzard of the year, is happening in March. We were SO CLOSE to having Spring. SO close! I have been hearing the Spring birdies chirping though.

 
This is the view from my office window.
My shop is normally closed on  Tuesday's
so I don't have to worry about opening up today!
 
 
 
over on my other page for Vintage & Co. I'm
looking for new recruits... I'd like to build the
party up a bit... it is hard because I am running
so many things!
 
 
This is the sofa table I worked on.
It had the original furniture store label
stapled underneath. It came from a store
that is now a thrift shop! Oh the irony!
Anyway, it was marked 1989.
 
 
 
Not too old but old enough to be updated.
I chalk painted it white and gave it the
stress treatment. LOL. 
 

 
 
In the picture it
looks like I painted the center taupe but that
is a burlap runner. I love the stone wall at the
shop... makes everything look that much better!
 
What do you have going on this week? Are you
snowed in like we are?
 
Next post I'll share a couple of finds from
last weekend... we went to an annual
 church sale, right down the road
from where we live.
 
Stay warm! Think Spring!

What is Selling on Etsy in my Bella Rosa Antiques Shop

Hello Friends!
Today I'm going to try and get my office whipped back into shape... I've been so busy I've let it slide ... into vintage chaos. Piles of things here
and stacks of things there.
 
So while I am working on it I'm going to share some things that have sold in my Etsy shop. I'm always curious about what has sold in other shops so maybe you'll find this post
interesting!
 
Here are the 10 most recent items:
 
 
A sweet pair of little ballet pink baby shoes.

A vintage Holy Communion box,
rosary, pin and pendants.
 

A Jack Dempsey restaurant menu.
 

 
A Honesdale, PA plate in memory of the 1902 flood.

 
A Bond Hotels "restaurant china" plate.

 
A vintage and very lacey romantic card.

 
A Lefton Bunny planter or vase. I have a
few of these myself and I don't think I
have this one. Now wondering why I
didn't keep it????

 
A Little Women book.
 
 
 
A Hull pitcher. Love these.
The blend of pastels is so pretty.

 
And a vintage children's book from a local school
called "Miss Fifi Duverall." She has a heart
for the Golden Rule and comes up with a plan
to teach it to other dogs. So cute!
 
Hope you have a wonderful week!
