This week I unknowingly bought a bunch of summer themed items... perfect timing though to head into summer with a few patriotic treasures in stock.
From a silk embroidered postcard sent by a soldier in France, to a souvenir pitcher from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, I've hit the patriotic jackpot!
I'm not sure I want all of these goodies to sell.
I love decorating with ribbons and patriotic themes...
I also found a Statue of Liberty souvenir ... and three Atlantic City souvenirs. Looks like dealers were doing the same thing... loading up with summer themed items.
Summer also means taking time out for reading ... I found a stack of books which includes "Gone with the Wind" and "The USA in 1,000 Photos." I might be taking the book on the USA to the lake house.
Now this is not part of the theme, but totally irresistible! Found at a yard sale.... for ...get this....
20.00! I couldn't decide... sell or keep?
Keep of course! (It didn't take me long to decide, obviously!) I have it in my office already ... I love it and it holds so much of my newly acquired china and teacups. The question is ... To Paint, or Not to Paint?
Most of my new finds are already in my Etsy shop, and soon to be loaded on to BellaRosaAntiques.com.
Hope you found some great finds too, I'd love to hear about it!
