We found a New Bed ! ..now we have to get rid of it.

We found a New Bed ! ..now we have to get rid of it.

   Hubby and I have been passively looking for a new bed. Actually, what I really mean is an old but new-to-us bed frame (we already have a mattress and box-spring).  We love Antiques and naturally are drawn to them. Our house is over 100 years old, as is a lot of our furnishings so it makes sense that we would look for an Antique Bed. We want a queen sized bed frame to accommodate our queen mattress :) The trouble is, most actual Antique beds we see are Full/Double size or 3/4 length mattress sized. But we keep our eyes open..
We currently are sleeping on a box-spring and mattress, well two mattresses that sit on the box-spring now that I think about it. We do not have a bed frame. We just haven’t found one we liked. We shopped for a new bed at the usual furniture stores, but the quality wasn’t as high as the prices. There were a few styles for sale that kind of reminded us of vintage furniture, but still they really tend to look like a shiny, new bed. So we quit actively looking.

This little heart-shaped leaf was on the path between our furniture and the truck. I passed it while taking the first few chairs down the path. It was a bright Spring green color and stood out against the brown dirt background. I tucked it into my pocket to show Rick later when I caught up to him :) By the time we had unloaded the truck twice and had a chance to sit down, the leaf was looking rather wilted and off-color (sort of how Rick and I felt !).
