My New Bed!!

Well its not really new, I found it on Craigslist. I have had it since early November, but incase you did not know I fell Nov. 8th and broke my leg/ankle in 3 places and honestly today was the first day I have had a chance to actually make my bed. Just started walking after 12 weeks in a wheelchair:(
LOVE the new bedding I got from Family Heirloom Weavers, there stuff is still USA made and it washes so very nice. I have 3 dogs that sleep in my room and 1 that sleeps on the bed with me and hubby:) so anything that looks nice and washes even better are number 1 in my book.
I also got the matching dressers from the same sale but do not have picture of them, they are in great shape as well. Trying to find something nice in a king size is very hard and especially whem you are looking for black and prim looking so I just HAD to have this when we saw the posting. It was less than a year old and the family was moving, so what a steal we got!
Still working on my blog swap goodies, making great progress just need a few more things to add. It was hard picking just 3-5 of my favorites I must say since I have so many!
Hope you enjoyed my new bed and bedding and have a great night!

some of my favorite yard sale finds

These are 2 pieces that greet you when you walk into my home and which I purchased this past summer during my yard sale days. The top piece is a wall cabinet taken from a very old house, the bottom piece is a dry sink complete with copper liner and slate top.
I hope to paint the bottom piece and prim it up a bit this spring.

My hope is that maybe each week we can 1) each share a favorite piece that we have purchased for a great deal, either from a friend or a yard, tag, garage or at a show. And 2)share your finished product if you plan on changing it up a bit or how you plan on using it.

With all this talent on these blogs everyone has a different approach to decorating and use of items. This way we can look at things differently and not pass up a piece because we dont know what to do with it...... PLEASE join in
