I wanted to share with you a few of the treasures I found at the Bella Market on Friday night.
My big Bella sister was the very talented Kim Hanauer who was also a vendor at the market.
She had wonderful vintage ephemera, vintage wallpaper, rhinestones, altered bottles and jewelry pieces that she created herself. Among those goodies were several vintage purses adorned with tiny frozen Charlottes.
This is the one I picked out and brought home with me.
I love it.
I also bought this fun and funky necklace to give as a gift.
Life is a Journey
And also this necklace created by Natalie Hansen
This beautiful red heart is a special piece that I purchased at the table of the gracious and lovely Charlotte Lyons who was selling them for her friend Rebecca Sower's Haiti By Hand.
I love the fact that all proceeds go directly to the creator of this beautiful piece and helps her support her family in Haiti.
I loved these monogrammed patches from Kaari Meng's

Tomorrow I will wrap it up with a few fun shots of the Bellas in their finest and a special gift from my sweet and thoughtful friend Zita of Mlle Magpie.
Hope your week is going well!
