I've been looking for a new (read vintage) coffee table for months..........I've dropped by the thrift stores/antique stores about town as often as possible..........NOTHING........darn it all. I want something big........well, in Bellamere Cottage terms it would be called big, but probably medium sized to anybody who has a larger cottage.....I want it to have "air" underneath it so it's not too heavy......I want something "different"... and it has to be a bit taller than a standard coffee table because my sofa's vintage and is a bit taller. NUTS! I'm having a horrible time. I want something rectangular...I want something cute........yeah, I do sound picky!!! ( I do have a really swell old farm table that could be made shorter if I knew somebody who could whack the legs off for me!!.......no simple task, I want a bit out of the CENTER of the leg!......yeah, picky....).
Well, I still haven't managed to find exactly what I want, but I did find this bed........I gotta tell 'ya....I got the giggles..........WHO WOULD BUY THIS??? (Oh my.....if you have one or one that's similar, I'm so sorry, I'm sure it's sensational in YOUR house.) It just isn't the right style for my little cottage. :-)
So, there I stood at the St. Vincent de Paul store, giggling, and wondering how in the world a mattress actually fits on this frame? And..........where the heck is Elvis?
It has attached night stands...........it has a little platform area, just in case you fall out of bed........it doesn't need a box spring............even the headboard is part of the whole shin-dig.
Do they still make black silk sheets and red velvet spreads? :-)
I wish I had noticed how much it was, but I didn't pay any attention.....that would have been interesting too.
Well, I stopped by there yesterday and guess what??? IT'S GONE!!!
Holy Cow! White Pleather??
I hope you'll take a moment to stop by Kelli's at
to see all the other snazzy additions to Show and Tell Friday.
And, thank you sooooo much for all the wonderful and uplifting comments
on "My Story"....you'll never know how much they meant to me. How wonderful all you
blog girlies are! I am blessed! God is so good.
See you tomorrow for Pink Saturday.
