Things that I love around my house (part two)……my bed! And I warned you this would be totally random – but let me explain. When we moved into our new house, we bought a king size bed! Married almost 25 years and – Bliss, I’m telling you. I suppose during those first five or so years of marriage, we were perfectly thrilled with our queen size bed. (Probably could have been fine with a full size….) Then, somewhere around year 10 or a bit more, things were beginning to get more uncomfortable. Sure, we had both added a bit of bulk, you might say, and it was getting crowded but – the snoring?!?! Please. And, after year twenty – not only was the bliss quickly evaporating but my back hurt every morning on our old mattress.
It was my mother’s set that she had custom made just a few years before she died – so I guess it is a one-of-a-kind in more than one way. I don’t suppose I would have ever chosen purple on my own – but I just love this purple. I love the plaid bedskirt and the cute accent pillows. The whole things is “just so my mom” and brings her to my mind just about every morning as I make the bed. And what a nice memory to start the day.
The cute little prim friend is mine (not from mom’s house) and was a birthday gift from my sweet girlfriend. She reminds me of her, as well, and that makes me smile!!
I’m trying to visit your blogs and “keep in touch” while in Florida but if I miss your posts, please keep coming by…I love your comments. I hope everyone will come by on Friday – for my special (fun) announcement!
