Another find from Aladdins Cave!

On the day I found the tall glass jar that I am using to display my cup cake cases I also found this bed. I had spotted it a few months ago but at the time couldn't justify buying it as it was just after Christmas. However, it was always in the back of my mind, wishing I had got it as the chance wouldn't come again etc., etc. So, on the day I called in to buy the glass jar I happened to spot it again, nearly hidden under other items for sale. It was lucky I had my hubby with me and he was in the mood to haggle. He got a few quid knocked off the original price. It took a lot cleaning and polishing with brasso, a new mattress was bought and slats to hold it in place. I love it even though I have to be careful not to fall out as it is quite high.

P.S. I didn't get the ironing done, had a trip down memory lane in the photo box at home! Best get into the bed now, work tomorrow!

Today the weather was promising, bright an sunny. However, within the last hour it has become very cold and windy. The blossom is getting blown off the trees. Looks like the ironing will get done this afternoon after all!
