MERCY. I have to show you guys my new bed. It got delivered
yesterday and I had palpitations when they put it up on the bed
frame. Apparently I should have ordered the "low profile" box springs, because my bed is now exactly THREE, count 'em, THREE feet high. (Did I mention I'm 4'11"?) I have an antique brass bed, so it already stands pretty tall off the ground.

I have to use a stool to get up into it. QUIT LAUGHING! You have to see this beast. I feel like I'm the princess from "princess & the pea", sleeping on 15 mattresses. So Steve-O to the rescue, he's got a truck and will help me go get the new box springs this week. MERCY.

This is a layout sketch challenge that Katrina K. aka "Kookie"
posted this weekend for us to play with.

Banner, stamp set and paper by Crafty Secrets: "French Mail" set and "Radiant" paper pack.

Check out the cat. Doesn't he look like he's thinking:

"How the heck am I gonna get down from here?"

Holy cow LZ, you're such a princess with your grand bed! LOL! Your poor kitty looks totally freaked out! You're going to have to call the fire department to get him down from your ginormously high bed!

And I forgot to say that I was laughing when I read your post too! Only because we aren't too far off from each other in height! Great things come in small packages though right? :)

That is too funny! I love the cat picture and your decor is so gorgeous. I'm a shabby chic/vintage lover myself, so I'm glad to have found your blog tonight through a link at Valerie's blog!
