Story Behind The Name

The name "Bella Rosa" came to me when I remembered a wonderful moment I had while visiting Italy. I was touring with a friend ...and while we were waiting to leave for our next destination...I somehow wandered into a beautiful rose garden. There, an elderly gardener was happily trimming the vines and saw me walk in. He looked over and very kindly exclaimed "Rosa Bella, Rosa Bella, Bella Rosa!" (I think it was my red hair, it seemed very popular in Italy!) He then turned, clipped some roses and to my surprise, came over and handed some to me. How sweet was that moment! I think I smiled the rest of the day...and STILL today, it makes me smile. What a wonderful memory!

And thus, Bella Rosa Antiques was born.
