DH decided that our Girl Child needed a princess bed…but her ceiling is too low to accommodate a traditional canopy or bunk beds. This is the design he came up with. The crenelated section on top holds a twin mattress, and the “dungeon” has a crib mattress, at the moment. (A twin will fit, but changing the sheets will be tight. I think the Boy will need a sleeping bag.) I was planning to do some faux stone accents and flower stencils on it, but I think it looks great as is. What do you think? And don’t you think my kiddos are lucky to have such a cool dad?
Today, July 3, would be my Grandmom’s 101st birthday. She was one of my favorite people, and though she’s been gone 10 years, I still miss her. Sometimes, I smell her perfume when there is no one around, and think she must be visiting. I am lucky to have this beautiful crewel embroidery she did, a long time before she died. We had it framed and gave it to her on her 85th (I think) birthday. She was impressed with her own ability as a stitcher…she hadn’t been able to see to do such fine work for quite a while. I have it hanging above my dining table, where I see it every day, and it always makes me smile. Happy Birthday, Grandmom!
