Antiquing Inspirations

This past weekend I went antiquing to stir my creative mind and also to find items to fill my online shop, Bella Rosa Antiques. I love browsing through the different dealer displays. My trusty little camera captured a few inspirational views:

These look like some oldies but goodies.

A collection of shells to remind me of the ocean...

Shiny elegance!Swirly sconces add a little drama!

What inspires you to work on your projects or decorate your home?

To see what I found on my search hop on over here to my Bella Blog!

If I need inspiration..I visit blogs or get out my old magazines.

Decorating my home is one of the last things I do! I'm too distracted with too many other things! But I do love my scrapbooking magazines which I find inspiring and that I have never recycled or given away! I hoard them like crazy! The next one comes out within a couple weeks! I can hardly wait!

Really cool! You had great finds!
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Jillian
It is so nice to reconnect with you again! I'll bet Bebe is getting big!
I click on your web antique store link and had a good time looking at your items for sale. When I have a little more time to shop, and have my credit card handy I'll be back. :-)
