good-bye old friend.....


well...... it has been a long time coming.....we have taken the step & purchased a NEW bed!.......this will be the first piece of new furniture we have ever purchased (besides our stove & fridge)............................this old iron bed has been part of us for over 25 years, saying good-bye i am sure will be a little difficult....................................i don't adapt to change very well................i am sure when our new pencil post canopy arrives, we set it up, i get it stained and our new QUEEN mattress set on......i will have a few moments of "oh my gosh, what have i done"....always do!.............................but hopefully the transition will be a good one..................this is a photo of last summer's lighter look with the painter's cloth cover..................."good-bye old friend"......................................i am blessed!

Hi Denise!..How wonderful!..But I don't adapt to change very well either...Do you mind me asking where you got the pencil post bed?...We've been pricing them for some time ourselves...Have a good day!!...Jen
