The Bed

Well, it is really like a vintage cot, that is an old fashion fold up roll away.
it has a ticking mattress on it and when I saw it I knew it was perfect. This is new and made in italy, guess where I got it....Big Lots, yep, that is right Big Lots.
I couldn't have been more right. I didn't even know the measurements of this bed, but I didn't even have to adjust the table a bit. It slid right in the spot that it was meant for.

I started dressing the bed this evening. I got all the linens on but I am still working on the pillows.
It is late and I need to just sit. But I got some pictures tonight with the twinkle lights aglow.

You know it is right when the whole family comes in and cuddles up to watch a movie, yes, I am sitting here with B by my side the kitties in their beds and Pillow Talk on.
Oh, Doris Day, I think every girl back then dreamed of being her. What style!
Now, I can focus on the other half of the room.
I think my guest won't want to leave after staying in this room. I know I don't wanna sleep in my own bed tonight :)

How creative you are and what a pretty cot! The room is so charming, too. I would love to curl up with you there and sip tea in winter;-)
