In a Flash ~ Vintage Clock Faces, Pin Ornaments, Mirror, Shabby Rose Plates

This weekend seemed to go by in a flash. Where does the time go?

Saturday the weather warmed up a lot. Just enough to tease me into thinking spring was finally here. Ha! I heard a weather report it will be getting cold again, really cold, by the end of the week.


I do know it is short term because daylight savings is already in effect (yay!) and March 21st isn't too far away either. Not that it's going to be like Florida around here but one can hope.

Anyway, we took advantage of the warm temps and took Dear Bebe around the neighborhood in her stroller. She's so cute. She has a dangling toy hooked to the seat and she holds onto it the whole time. Even when her eyes are closed.

Saturday afternoon I finally got a chance to load the rest of my latest inventory onto the Bella Rosa website.

These scalloped edged plates are soooooo neat because they have that vintage patina built in from time gone by. A dainty pink rose border is the perfect touch. I have some of the same pattern in Dear Bebe's nursery. Remember I did the baby meets shabby chic theme? I used the large meat platter as a tray to hold all of her lotions and other bottles on the dresser.
This little mirror (4" x 4") is too cute. I'm wondering if it came off of an old vintage photo album? I think it's great making it's own little statement all by itself.

Cake plates and I have a thing for each other. I love to buy (and collect) them and somehow they keep finding me! Especially this one with all of the pastel roses.

These pin ornaments are older and I just love the velvet pastel colors someone chose for the base. Too sweet! Secretly I'm thinking how great they are going to look this Christmas if they don't sell. Isn't that backwards? I'm supposed to hope they SELL. Not the other way around.

There's more unique items including the clock faces at the top of this post. I left the picture there because I couldn't resist the "time" analogy. Okay, so it's early in the week. I'll think of something clever to write about next time!

Glad to hear you and Bebe had an enjoyable walk! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that our warm weather here lasts, but I know better. Sigh. Not too much longer though. :)
