Apology and Guess What I Got???

First off, an apology. I'm sorry I'm not posting much in the way of creative stuff lately. I am going through some personal stuff that seems to have sucked all my mojo out.

Secondly, I am SO excited about my new find! I have wanted a cherry wood sleigh bedroom set forever. I have never owned a NEW bedroom set. So I started watching for a used sleigh bedroom set that I could afford. It took about six months but I found the set of my dreams in the town where my brother lives. And not only is it a cherry wood sleigh set, but it is a NEW cherry wood sleigh set. The grandfather bought it for the granddaughter and when it was delivered she didn't like the dark wood. So they sold it for about half the price of new but it's still in the boxes!

My brother picked it up for me and it's stored in his garage right now until we can manage the delivery (he lives a couple hours away).

Isn't it pretty????









There is also a mirror that goes with the shorter dresser. The only thing I wish it had that it doesn't...is a second nightstand. But I can live with that. :-)

Hi Jane, I think you scored! What a beautiful new bedroom set, I hope your brother can deliver and set it up for you soon :). Have a good weekend, oh, try the sketch you'll like it!

Ohh, Jane, it is GORGEOUS!! I had an antique bed similar to this as a child. Loved it! Unfortunately it got broken in storage and we got a new set when we moved into the new house.

As for my little Easter basket, yes, it would definitely fit a few Cadbury eggs or Reese's. Play along at KL Stampin N Scrappin this week for a chance to win that and more!! :) Hugs, Kelly

Good for you Jane in getting a new bedroom set! It's starting over with something that you want for your own bedroom. It's beautiful.

Anytime you want to chat, you can always e-mail me. I responded to you on SCS. It will be okay.

Many hugs to you girlfriend.

Love it! I went through some similar personal stuff in '99 - the first thing I did was get my own new bedroom set. It was awesome. It made the space my own, and I've never regretted it once. Congrats!
