My friend Rosemary called me to alert me to a yard sale being held by her friends. She thought we might be interested in a bed that was going to be sold. Were we ever!!!! It was a very good yard sale.
The bed is perfect for our room. The open foot board doesn't close off the small scale of the room and as Mr. City Home is 6'3" tall it's just perfect for him too. Dennis (Rosie's husband) came by with his truck and he and Rosie helped us haul the bed home. We couldn't wait to get it to the homestead so we disassembled it further and loaded it into two different vehicles and took it to the homestead that very afternoon.
Here it is in the late afternoon hours (sorry for the poor photo; the sun was coming in the west windows and the light was horrible). The whole room looks green doesn't it? The mahogany bed has the most beautiful hand carving on the headboard. It fits perfectly in our room and is the right time frame for the house. Rick even threw in a set of beautiful hand embroidered linen sheet and shams from Venice, Italy. When I get the quilts on it and the light is better, I'll post another photo.
Like I said, it was a VERY GOOD yard sale.
