Vintage Inspiration # 88 Mammabellarte

Today, I want to spotlight a sweet friend and
 Renaissance Woman Extraordinaire,

Rita lives in Southern California with her husband and family, but originally comes from Sicily. She is talented in so many areas; below is a chair swing she made to salvage a piece that might have been destined for the trash.







Rita is a woodworker, crafting the most beautiful and detailed birdhouses
a venue she co founded and sponsors.







She's also an amazing jewelry creator, designer and teacher.

Her pieces are so detailed, unique, and amazing!












But this is how I met her...
Meet Rita, the chicken wrangler!

Believe it or not, almost three years ago I saw this photo on Google Images  and tracked her down. Since then, I've been a huge fan of all her creativity and her wonderful blog. Are these kids not the cutest? She's been featured many times in magazines; this photo was featured in the March issue of Country Living several years ago.




So take a minute when you can and run by and say Hello to Rita. Go with her to the shows, and then enjoy all the beauty and charm from one of the sweetest gals on Earth!



And here is some other great talent from last week's party!


Nancy from Nancy's Daily Dish has a great post on one of the hottest decor collectibles out there; artillery baskets. Nancy always has the interesting facts, so be sure and check out her post.







Rita from May Days used this great old Pepsi crate
 as a centerpiece for her gorgeous tablescape.



love those dishes!



Nicole from Doodles and Stitches found this wonderful 
bench made from an old bed...love that patina!





and Irma from Cosas Bellas shared such an inspirational post
 about her faith, entitled "White as Snow"


 Thankyou Irma.
