Bella Rosa Five Year Anniversary Giveaway! Five Winners Win a Gift Certificate to My Shop

It is hard to believe 5 years have gone by since I started my online store, Bella Rosa Antiques.

5 years!

Where does the time go?

I had just found out I was pregnant with my Dear Bebe and I was opening up my own shop. Believe it or not, I really thought I would not have it open for too long. I was turning forty that year and well, as it turned out, I enjoyed having my own shop while staying at home with my little Sweet Pea!

To celebrate, I am having an anniversary giveaway! 5 winners will be chosen to each win a 25.00 gift certificate to my shop!
(The gift certificate includes shipping. If what you have chosen exceeds the gift certificate, you'll just have to pay the balance. Jewelry and paper ephemera are free to ship!)

All you need to do are these 5 things below to be eligible for the drawing:

1. Go to my shop here and tell me what your favorite item is by leaving a comment on this post. One entry per person.
2. Become a follower of my blog.
3. Mention it on your blog with a link back to this post.
4. Relax.
5. Enjoy the day!

That's it.

Just spread the word!
The winner will be chosen on June 5th! Be sure to leave your email in case you do not have a link to a blog.

(UPDATE....due to our recent trip out of town the deadline has been extended 'til the end of the week on June 7th!!!!)

Thank you to all of the patrons, readers and friends I have made while blogging and antiquing over the years. I couldn't have done it without you.


Linking to Pink Saturday....Beverly is celebrating 5 years of PINKY greatness! Congratulations!

Congratulations Jillian!
Everything in your shop is beautiful...I went through all the pages but what caught my eye most were the cobalt blue bottles on the first page (they would look great in my medical cabinet!) I have been a follower for some time and I did put up a link to your giveaway at the top of the side bar of my blog. Now I will go do the last 2 things...take a break with a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy the 1st day of sunshine that we have had for what seems like ages! :)

Happy Pink Saturday 5th Birthday and Happy Bella Rosa Fifth Anniversary.

You know I have followed you from the beginning, and your link is up on my blog.

So many pretty things, but I was immediately drawn to the vintage placecards.

I thought I WAS a follower of yours already, Jillian, but I guess I wasn't!! NOW I AM!!!

You are making me work hard for this giveaway! ha ha!! I have you linked on my PS post......and I loved looking at all of your items in your shop. There are so many neat things there, but I'm a huge fan of patriotic I'd love any of the 4th of July post cards you have! The one I REALLY loved is already sold! But that's good for YOU!!

I can't believe it's been 5 years since we met via Pink Sat. I still recall the day when you announced you'd had Bebe and what a shock it was cuz you didn't let any of us know!! She was a great surprise to us and a wonderful gift to you.

Are you loving your lake house this season? I know you are!

HPS 5th birthday....and if you draw my name, I will be very happy...and if you don't....well....maybe I'll win next time! ha ha!

L, Dana

You have a world of great items to consider. Since my birthday is August with a green Peridot stone, if I were so lucky to win, I like the Vintage Mint Green Swarovski Crystal bracket. I am also a follower. Good luck to some lucky person.

Congratulations on five years! Going through your items and trying to pick a favorite was quite a challenge. I think I decided on the forget-me-not creamer and sugar. Although that tall country rose pitcher is a stunner! I'm fairly sure I'm already a follower and I will let everyone know about your giveaway on my blog!
Have a lovely weekend,

Oh, goodie! I'm back in Blogland just in time for your five year anniversary!! Yes - I've been MIA for a few months this spring but I'm starting my summer sabbatical now and getting back to posting more regularly - and - perhaps getting my own Etsy shop happening. Career change on the horizon - much needed.

So - I totally want in on this give-away! I will go to the store site and comment as directed. I'll put a link and mention in on my teatime post for you, too, this week. My first time to teatime in a couple months or more! Whew! Good to be back! Will email with details of what's new on our end - hope we can get together this summer. We need a break!

Okay - so I took a look through the shop - choose just one??? Really? At least three teacups and saucers caught my eye - but my heart would leap at the postcard ephemera - and do flips when books came into view. I think I have to go with the Longfellow poems - would look great on my mantel next to my Tennyson edition; but I also like the great four book series of great literature - red with gold that you also note to be great for the mantel. Problem is - how to fit them all with my others. But, that just takes a little re-decor time that I don't mind.
Joy to you and congrats on five years in Blogland!
