It started with an email from Southern Architecture and Antiques in Cullman saying they were going to Bella Rustica...outside of Pulaski, TN. Well, that's just up the road!
With a few quick clicks I learned that Bella Rustica is a vintage marketplace fundraiser held in a real barn, The Milky Way Farm outside of Pulaski TN.
I was curious and wanted to go. A few bloggers that I happen to follow were going to be there too, Funky Junk Interiors, My Blessed Life and Southern Hospitality. Maybe I'll meet them too! It sounded like an advendure that my long time friend at Rose Street Reflections would enjoy too!
So it was a done deal and soon we were there.
It was like a huge vintage store or antique shop in a stately stone horse barn. Yes, complete with dirt road in and out, dirt floors and no air conditioning. It's true.
I bought a charm (that I hope to make into a bracelet) and vintage camp stools.
Yes, stools that I don't want anyone sitting on!
Maybe I'll put a tray on top, they'll be perfect for side tables.
Although we didn't see any of the blogger demos, I did make a point to speak to Myra of My Blessed Life. Her blog is one of the first ones I followed...hmmm was that 3 or 4 years ago?
I had a great time and will watch for this event for a wonderful cause again next year!
