Story Behind The Name

The name "Bella Rosa" came to me when I remembered a wonderful event that happened to me while visiting Italy. I was touring with a friend of mine...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 singing and saw me walk in. He immediately started exclaiming "Bella Rosa, Rosa, Rosa!" (I think it was my red hair?) He then turned and to my surprise, came over to me and handed me some roses. 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.
