When Linda invited me to Bella Rustica, I knew she was welcoming me into her beautiful home. In fact, I stayed there several nights before heading out to an amazing little rental house closer to the event. (more on that sweet thing soon!)
What I DIDN’T expect is to discover what a junker Linda is!
Oh gosh, you have no idea. I can now see why this sweet and beautiful gal is intrigued running all things vintage. Her house is tweaked to perfection with all the stuff I love.
I walked into the house and basically ran from vignette to vignette, clicking like mad, exclaiming, “So… you don’t mind that I’m taking pictures of your house, right?” (like she had a choice)
Linda thinks she has nothing to look at. PA!!!! So very wrong.
Let’s snoop, shall we?
I have ALWAYS wanted to do this to a grouping of clocks, and then BAM there it was.
LOVE and JEALOUS all in one fell swoop.
And then I turn around and SHAZAM, another mirrors on a wall dream of mine. Nothing to look at heeeere….
(I really don’t say shazam but couldn’t think of anything else that created lighting)
I die. These hats on the mirror with another hat on top is adorable!
This cutie pie mini shelf was above the stove. I’d bet it’s ancient.
And then there was this amazing hutch filled to the brim with rust and mason jars and…
… what’s that? F u n k y ….
Ok. I was completely and utterly honoured she attempted.
This girl is also one amazing junkin’ crafter. She’s creating tin can flowers. Tin cans. Flowers. Seriously… stinking adorable.
Ok, and then she told me I was getting HER bedroom. “Oh no no I can’t do that… no no put me up in the hallway or ? but no no, I can’t take your bedro……”
“I CHANGED MY MIND!”
Stunning, sharp black against creams with a touch of gold and sage to warm things up.
She can never EVER enter my home. Unless blindfolded.
Not to mention me needing 5 years advance notice to shovel out the corners.
Where’s her BAD junk?!
Did you notice how she hung the window treatments? How cool is that?
This luscious little rusty something or other hung all her jewelry.
I wanted to steal that studded leather cuff but she woulda figured that out.
… there’s nothin’ to look at here.
Linda, you went completely out of your way to put me up. Thank you so very much for treating me like a movie star every step of the way. Your home is gorgeous and yes, you have so very much to look at.
No wonder I want to go back…
Miss you, friend. xo
