Spring Trunk Show

Bella Vita was bursting at the seams last night with beautiful paintings, unique jewelry, delicious food and the best of company. Sarah Robertson filled our walls with her artwork while Debbie Segal stocked our tables with her jewelry for our annual Spring Trunk Show.

Just a glimpse at some of the artwork Sarah Robertson had available!

So much time is put into making our trunk shows successful. Our artists work around the clock for months to create new pieces and to have enough in quantity and variety to please everyone's style.

But all of this would not be possible without you, our wonderful customers who keep coming back for a piece of the beautiful life, which we're always so happy to share with you.

Honestly, the best part of the evening for all of us involved in the show was watching all of you! We know the look (because we've all had it ourselves!) when you spot the perfect piece of art or pair of earrings--and we saw it plenty during the show! Yummy wines and delicious food from Jim’s Place Grille next door made the evening even more delectable. Nobody does it better than Jim’s Place Grille, and we couldn’t be happier that they were part of our evening.

Thanks so very much for, once again, making our Spring Trunk Show one we will remember for years to come. Here's to next year ...

Mother's day is about honoring the women that make our lives beautiful; the women that shape us, support us and love us. Jewelry artist and designer Debbie Segal is not only a beautiful person inside and out, she is a strong woman devoted to her daughters, her husband and her passions. Without a doubt, Debbie Segal makes our lives more beautiful every day with her one-of-a-kind jewelry and spirit.

To help you find the perfect gift for the beautiful women in your lives, Debbie Segal has graciously agreed to spend the weekend with us at Bella Vita. Her style is uniquely hers; a quality that is easily seen in her elegant designs.

Each time Debbie begins to create a new piece her goal is the same: to create wearable works of art that can be both staple pieces in your day-to-day wardrobe and statements pieces for your special occasions. We like to call it "everyday elegance". We believe she achieves her goal with every piece designed. Her timeless style can be found everywhere from her ever popular CZ and disc earrings, to her hand hammered, hand wrapped bracelets.

Debbie Segal hand hammers each bracelet from a solid piece of sterling silver. Bracelets are then adorned with sterling silver wire, gold filled wire and semi-precious stones.

Debbie's one-of-a-kind necklaces will suite anyone's style. From large and ornate, to small and simple, her pendants are sophisticated and full of character.

Whether you are are looking for an ideal pair of everyday earrings or a pair to go with that one special dress, Debbie Segal has it all. Good luck choosing just one...we can't do it!

We are honored to have Debbie Segal as part of our Bella Vita family. The personality and style she brings is unmatched, and she continues to inspire and impress us.

Don't hesitate to take advantage of Debbie Segal this weekend. She will be with us at Bella Vita, inspiring the beautiful life, Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8 from 11-5.

On The Hunt

A couple weeks ago Brent and I decided to take a weekend and hit the road. By Friday afternoon we had the truck and trailer loaded and we were off in search of new great finds for the store; new products for you to add to your beautiful lives. Luckily we left town before the weather turned south, and were at our destination during the worst of the storms. Because of the stormy weather we were not able to get to everything on our list, but we did find a few treasures worth hauling home.

Finding an iron bed frame is not as easy as you would think so I didn't wait a single second to put a SOLD sign on this one! My empty upstairs will finally have some furniture!

Can't you just see this hanging above a distressed farm table or illuminating your covered porch?

We caught up with an artist mid-painting and were able to watch part of the transformation from blank canvas to finished piece. Watching people in their element, doing what they love is such an inspiring experience.

Unfortunately these frames are not yet available to retailers, but I was able to snag a couple for my own home. I have been searching for the perfect piece to go over my mantel and I'm happy to say the search is over!

Weekend excursions always seem to leave me even more exhausted than when I left, but I wouldn't miss them for anything. Always keeping my eye open for the next great thing is not only important to the success of Bella Vita, but it's also way too much fun to give it up! I never know what I'm going to find, but even if it's just one signature piece, the trip was well worth the efforts.

I would love to hear about your one-of-a-kind finds. Have you ever stumbled upon that one piece that is now front and center in your home?
