Fenton Hobnail Bell, Limoges Teapot, Hatpin Holder, Vintage Baby Bottle, Hallmark Snow White Ornament & More!

Here are the rest of my vintage finds from last weekend...soon to be on the Bella Rosa Antiques website. If you'd like to be on our mailing list and be some of the first to find out what's been added to the store... click here to add your name!

This is a gorgeous Limoges France teapot. Love the light green color as though it had a garden theme.

Thank you, this has SOLD!
Royal Crown Derby china 2 pc set....dainty but useful! Made in England.
Thank you, these have SOLD!
Got pink? What's a tea party without the perfect vintage napkins?

And to keep things neat and tidy a pair of celluloid crumb scrapers.
You don't see those anymore.

A very nice FENTON Hobnail bell. The original sticker was still attached when I found it! Unfortunately it came off when I was cleaning it!

Thank you, this has SOLD!
A "V" for VINTAGE!
Thank you, this has SOLD!
A pretty, old, sparkly belt buckle. Crafters could make something awesome with this! I can just see it now on a pillow with a pink ribbon going through it. Ooooh la la!

Thank you, this has SOLD!
I just love this hatpin holder. It is a beauty! Unfortunately it is a reproduction and will be priced as such. The real thing is usually sold at around 65.00.
But, when a repro looks this chic and shabby ....who cares if it's not the real mccoy!!

Sweet pinkie vintage baby outfit. . .
Thank you, this has SOLD!
And an old glass baby bottle. The rattle is adorable too and will be available in our new "For Baby" category. Guess I've been inspired by my past nine months with Dear Bebe!

This pretty Hallmark "Wishes Really Do Come True" Disney / Snow White ornament is not an antique but it sure is collectible and can be found in our "Collectibles category. Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! Items to be uploaded soon...

Thank you, this has SOLD!
Vintage advertising cards...and with beautiful printed roses like these, what's not to like?

A motto to live by...

Sweet pinky roses on a trinket dish...

I fell in love with these baby items when I saw them!
A petite aqua baby rattle. So sweet!

But then I saw this celluloid crib toy and knew it was coming home with me immediately! Pink and aqua! And it looks like it was never used...
still in the original box.
A pretty victorian pin...with the old style pin backing.

Thank you, this has SOLD!

And a Tasha Tudor book. This one is called "Tasha Tudor's Favorite Stories." Full of her lovely illustrations!

I'll be showing more photos soon...and getting them loaded onto the site for sale. Just wanted to give you a sneak peek!

Vintage Tablecloths ~ Pink Rose

Here is some interesting info from Kovel's newsletter. Something I didn't know before:

If you collect printed tablecloths from the sixties, be careful washing them. They will fade. The vintage cloths were usually 50 by 54 inches; repros are often 60 by 60 inches.
Here is a tablecloth I have currently available in my Bella Rosa Store.

It is gorgeous...in great condition! I measured and this one is 54 x 64.

I'll have to add a photo of it opened up completely...it has the rose on each corner.

Latest Vintage Finds Are Now Available

It was a great Father's Day, a whirlwind weekend, and Monday came upon me like the Road Runner! (Couldn't think of anything else fast.)

This morning my Dear Hubby watched Dear Bebe for me so I could get the latest items uploaded to the website for you. Summer is officially here and I am excited!
Hope you're having a great start to your week.

Now, it's off to work on organizing the office (a never ending task!). . .
And as always,
