Last week at this time I was shopping for vintage treasures and hanging with fun blogger peeps at Bella Rustica 2013. We had a meet up of some great Tennessee bloggers that Hometalk helped us organize. I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of our meeting and of course some pictures of the eye candy that is Bella Rustica.
We arrived on a hot Saturday morning to a beautiful farm in Lebanon, TN.
My great friend Deneen from Dreaming in Color had her sign proudly displayed out front. Yea I took a picture and totally bombed it with my finger….gah.
One of the first booths when we walked in had this great hand painted sign that I fell in love with immediately. Y’all see why right?
I also fell in love with some towels that had vintage graphics on them. This one with Tennessee on it was calling my name but I just didn’t NEED it.
There were painted mason jars of all sizes and colors. I thought these first aid versions were fun.
The eye candy was everywhere with lots of vendors having vintage goodies that were amazing to look at.
I might just be kicking myself for not walking away with some of these vintage trays and crates. Aren’t they dreamy?
There was also tons of inspiration for a DIY lover like me. So while I only walked away with a few small treasures, inspiration has struck for even more projects around here.
After we were all too hot to breath, we snuck on over for some AC and bonding over a late lunch.
All in all it was a wonderful day and I hope to hang with all of these ladies again!
