Contrast . . .

 Sharing today some of my favorite pins that show my current (and yesterday and tomorrow) obsession with light and dark, natural materials and texture.  I love white, but I love it most against a dark and natural wood.  Throw in something woven (baskets, an old hat, a rug) and it's simply perfection.  Bella Vintage Marketplace is only 6 weeks away - create your shopping list now using these photos as inspiration and follow us on Facebook as we are introducing our fabulous vendors, sponsors, food trucks and entertainment almost daily!

Creative Planting. . .

For flowers and plants, inside or out, there are so many ways to re-purpose vintage items as planters.  Here are some of my favorites. . .

Old silver pieces to hold succulents . . .

Succulent table decorations ... how cute are these? A quick, easy centre piece. Add moist potting mix to wine goblets or your favourite candle holder & top with a tiny succulent. Alternatively add herb or flower seedlings to mini cardboard gift boxes tied with ribbon & filled with moist potting mix as gifts for guests to take home. | The Micro Gardener

Wooden boxes with advertising. . .

Independence Day

Here's to flags on barns, cold lemonade and porch swings - may your July 4th be festive!

No matter where you live, a little show of Patriotism goes a long way. Hope everyone had a fantastic fourth!

A vintage-style American flag welcomes visitors to this renovated Federal-era house in Sherman, Connecticut.

Designer Sarah Richardson decorated this master bedroom from her summer cottage in red and white, adding liberal hues of blue.

If only the summer's weren't so hot here in the south - maybe this chair would get more use!

Vendors and Food Trucks!

So let me just say that when you like old stuff like I do, you don't have much interest in technology!  I know I need to be friends. . . but right now I'm just more of an acquaintance. I posted on Facebook from my phone, or so I thought, a day or two ago about vendor applications but it's not showing up now.  Besides the fact that it also inserted a random photo with our site link that I didn't upload.  Geez. . .

So here we go again!

We are still taking vendor applications!  Just click on the Vendor tab above (or at if you are reading this on Facebook) to get the contract and agreement.  You can also private message us if you have trouble opening and we can email you another version.

We are also looking for 2-3 additional Food Trucks - let us know if you own one or know of a great one that we should contact.

Have a great week!

Some green inspiration. . .

in honor of the May rain in middle TN that has left our grass tall and those ferns on our southern porches happy!

Landreths is the oldest seed company in the country. Please support them. They have a fantastic catalog! 

These green glass pieces will put your kitchen shelves and cupboards in mint condition.

Two or three of these would look great over a kitchen island or a big farmhouse style table.

“However many years she lived, Mary always felt that 'she should never forget that first morning when her garden began to grow'.”  ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

 Use antique teacups and succulents to make these fun planters. #garden #succulents #diy

AGAPE (First Official Post)

My grandmother was a foster parent.  It was way before my time, but my mother has memories of growing up with foster children in the house, and in particular a set of twins that lived with them for an extended period of time.  I’ve always felt that urging to do the same, or perhaps even adopt.  It took me years to really come to peace with the fact that it was okay that I didn’t (Ahh. . . good old guilt)!  It takes a really special person to be soft enough to love and nurture but then hard enough to let go.  I’m so thankful that many of you reading this, fall into that category.

I think that’s what drew me to AGAPE and then ultimately to Bella in the first place – the ability to use my talents to forward a cause I’m passionate about.   All of you will be doing the same when you sign on for a booth or purchase a ticket for the day.  

One of the things I love about AGAPE is their determination to heal families.  The counseling center provides services for both children and adults in an effort to keep families together.  The organization is filled with people who are passionate about what they do.  Even Chandler Means, the Executive Director at Agape, is a foster parent to two little girls.  I assure you that it is not a job requirement, but rather a sign of his devotion.  

This is my first official post on our new site and I couldn’t think of a better way to start it off.  So much more coming soon.
