E 'una bella cosa!
I attended an Italian Market Sale at the home of Kim Kelly in Coronado last weekend. Kim invited a few friends to join her in the sale, and what a sale it was. She opened her charming home and garden which was packed full of goodies!
You can visit Tamerie, the queen of pillows and slipcovers! She has more photos on her blog.
There were handmade pillows, frames, furniture, pretty jewelry and soldered bottles by Rita Reade. As soon as I stepped into the backyard, there was a farm table holding a collection of soldered bottles. My eyes went straight to this one, The Guardian Angel Bottle.
A large bottle with metal wings, cherub applique and a religious medal hanging inside from a chain. The metal is inscribed with Pray For Us. There were so many tempting pretties, but this one was going home with me.
Rita teaches classes In Temecula and nearby. You can visit her blog here.
A simple old crate makes the perfect wine rack.
It may be hard to see in this photo, but behind her cross it has a faint
hand stencil that Kim did herself. Amazing Grace...it was stunningly beautiful!
As we were leaving the front door, look at what was parked out front!
A completely refurbished 1959 RED stove, complete with the range shakers...Oh My!I am not a red person, but I could easily learn to love it. Now, if I only had an extra Three Grand... :(
