My pretty bed
OK ~ got my bed set up yesterday and the room, pretty much in order today!
As the pictures show, we turned both beds with headboards in front of the bow-type windows and the window shelf. There was no other way to fit them both in there...however - I rather like the way it looks. I used that window seat to display some plants (behind the beds) and they will have plenty of sunlight there in front of the windows. The doll case is in the center of the window shelf- with the 2 beds to either side of it! (about 3 feet between the beds)
Only one problem...and I bet you just knew there would be one or two!! LOL-
Well...the problem is that the bed is SOOO high I can barely climb up on it! SOOO high I can't even get a knee up there to hoist myself up! haha-REALLY!! (It measures 33 inches! It reaches me at about my waist! I have to use a stepping stool to get in that bed!! ( As you can see in the pictures, my bed is an old iron bed; built high off the floor! Tomorrow we will look for a shorter mattress box. ( you know- the part that fits under the mattress!). This one is over 8 inches high so if I could find one a few inches shorter it would solve the problem!
I slept on the bed last night and found it very comfortable...except for my fear of falling off during my sleep! Yikes!! Wouldn't it be just my luck to fall off that high bed and break an arm or a leg!! :( ...Or hit my head and make myself more addle-brained than I already am!! ;)
Well- I have to say it all looks pretty, at least!
The cover on my bed is a hand made quilt I bought from my (late) Aunt Netta. We bought 2 for us and one for each of our kids. I love my quilts but had never used them until now. And I will just use this as a top cover and not as a quilt to sleep under! I want to always keep it pretty!
I'm so glad I have these from my dear aunt!
Today was a long one here for Charlie and me! I have been sad and going back and forth in my decision regarding my little dog, Sadie. The thing is I feel she is still getting some joy out of her life and I don't know if I'm ready to face bringing that to an end for her. She still eats well and she still goes outside ...she still likes to be right by my side...
Something will happen soon...
