New Bed Fits Perfectly

 July 2 was my birthday, my husband and I had just returned from our first empty nest road trip, which means I had to shop for my own birthday....again. But....that is ok because I first picked out the most Fabulous Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O'Neil. Loving every page of the book you can just imagine when my husband came back from walking the dog to tell me about the bed frame around the corner. Out we,  I flew out the door,(with him behind me).  It was sitting there in the yard of a man that usually sits in his own yard three sheets to the wind himself. We stopped and made an offer, he accepted and I got another birthday present! woohoo and I think it is very Fifi, myself.
 It fits perfectly and even had a place for the sheer valance I had previously posted.
 Side note- it is always fun to add up your finds in your room, this room
curbside rescue-Dresser
                         ceiling fan

Sale finds-vintage bed spreads $12
                 bed frame                $50
                  blue chair               $2
                 Vintage suitcases     <$20
                  Mirrors                   $8
                  Milk Glass             $3

lots of other sale finds too numerous to mention.....just plain fun!

 The curbside door and dresser right beside it.

 oh, teehee and the curbside rescue night stand on the other side!

The previous headboard and valance, sorry for the overexposure but this room is so hard to photograph with the bright light.
