A New Look

Several months ago I asked my (welder) husband if he would fix one of my antique iron beds so that we could use it with our queen size mattress.  It is a bed that I bought at an estate sale years ago and used it in a guest room for a while.  You can see another one in my guest room here.  When I had a booth in an antique mall I sold lots of iron beds and my hubby would adjust the length of the rails. 

I had to eliminate my large Euro sham pillows because they covered too much of the pretty headboard.  Here is the result . . .  and I love it!

My husband has been on a dessert kick lately and has polished off (by himself, I might add) a pecan pie, peach pie and apricot cake in the last three weeks. 

Yesterday he requested another pie – pumpkin.  I said “what?”   He thought it sounded good, so here it is.  (You know the recipe – the one from the Libby’s can.)


My house smells like Thanksgiving and that’s okay with me!   I always have lots to be thankful for so this a gentle reminder.   How about you?  I hope you are thankful too.

I have been “missing in action” lately, but that is another story.  I’ll fill you in some other time.
