Meet Bella

This little gal found me at the antique store the other day!  I'm not kidding.  I looked over across the room and she was staring back at me.  So I had to give her a good home.  I gave her the name Bella because that means beautiful in french.  I think she's just beautiful.  Don't you agree?


I placed her on the wall above my fireplace where I could see her all day.  I just hope that my little Boston isn't too jealous though.  Afterall, I have been bringing alot of doggies home lately.  This one is my favorite though. 

Here she is looking all proud in her new home.


And since you're already in here, I thought I'd just show you around a bit.

















I hope you enjoyed meeting Bella and seeing her new surroundings.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Kelly, I really like Bella. She reminds me of a favorite pet from my childhood, my Dad's hunting dog. Thank you for linking it up with Home Sweet Home!

Kelly oh wow! Is that your living room? I don't think I had seen a full shot of like that before. It is simply stunning. Your new Bella is perfection on the mantle. It's a truly amazing room.

Come and join Pinterest! I really think you would enjoy it. :)

I love Bella! Love the name, too. My daughter named our cat Bella...it was that or ribbons or diamonds lol. Bella was definately the most 'beautiful' name of those 3 =) Your room is very pretty!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

YOur living room looks so inviting, just like an English country home would. The dog is the crowning touch~I also love the way you have all the different textures in there. So much to look at, and it all blends together in such a nice way. Now about those huge feathers!! I ordered some for myself and they are just puny compared to those long ones you have. One of my favorite things is the fern in the urn! I enjoyed poking around your room Kelly!

Everything is just lovely!

I love Bella. That is what my youngest granddaughter calls me. My name is Linda which means beautiful in Spanish......and in French. LD is called Chief since he is a Native American.

She is wonderful.

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

Bella is very cute, Kelly. I love your room and I'm especially noticing the lovely plants. Our home could use a few and I'm wondering if your greenery is real or faux? It certainly looks real.

Shelia said...

Hi Bella! Oh, Kelly, what a darling doggy portrait! She looks lovely over your fireplace!
Your home is so beautiful! You have the most beautiful things and certainly know how to use your decorator's touch!
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,

Beautiful Bella, indeed. She looks right at home there, too, and I hope you have your alarm system on 'cause Kim may sneak in in the middle of the night and you would have a bare spot there. :)))

Liz said...

What a gorgeous room! I love your puppy picture. :)

Beautiful home Kelly, so welcoming!

Bonnie said...

Wow, your room is my kind of room. Elegant but comfortable! Love your feathers and leopard pillows. Also your french touches.

Kathy said...

Kelly, I found your blog through SavvySouthernStyle sidebar-Well I am slowly trying to collect dog pictures too-I want to put them above/around our front door -- But my question is your front window -where did you get the white cafe curtains? and do you just have them hung with tension rods? Thanks I'm off to browse your blog -your sense of style is very classic and beautiful.
